Sisters Lisa, Amy & Shelley of girl group OG3NE are back with their new single: But I do.

Lisa, Amy and Shelley Vol of OG3NE lost their mother Isolde Vol-Malee due to cancer on the 12 July. Isolde was the inspiration for OG3NE’s Eurovision 2017 entry, Lights and shadows, and she was a major driving force in the girls’ lives.

After her passing, the three sisters decided to take a break from the public scene, postponing their concerts. Now, OG3NE is back fully, releasing their latest single But I do, an up-tempo song, and have a new look.

The single has already reached the number 1 spot on the Dutch iTunes chart. The song has been co-written by Swedish superstar Zara Larsson.

The return of OG3NE

In the past weeks, OG3NE has slowly taken up their career, returning to their successful tour Three Times A Lady.

The girls also opened the new season of the immensely popular show The Voice Of Holland (they themselves won season 5), together with previous winners and potential Eurovision 2018 candidates Maan de Steenwinkel (winner season 6) and Pleun Bierbooms (winner season 7).

Moreover, OG3NE revealed their new look during the performance of But I do at the Dutch television awards, the Gouden Televizier-Ring Gala, last week. Watch both performances:

About OG3NE

Lisa Roxanne (1994) and twins Amy Talitha and Shelley Celine (1995) are three sisters, daughters of composer and lyricist Rick Vol and former professional dancer Isolde Vol-Malee. Born in the city Dordrecht and raised in the small village Fijnaart, the sisters began singing and dancing at an early age.

Their mainstream breakthrough came when they represented the Netherlands on home soil at the 2007 Junior Eurovision Song Contest in Rotterdam, as Lisa, Amy & Shelley, placing 11th with their song Adem in, adem uit (Breath in, breath out).

As Lisa, Amy & Shelley, the girls began a successful career, releasing hits for children and young adults. As they matured, the girls re-oriented their musical perspectives. They finally emerged as OG3NE (originally written O’G3NE) when they participated in the fifth season of the popular talent show The Voice Of Holland, which they won in December 2014.

In 2017, OG3NE represented the Netherlands at the Eurovision Song Contest in Kyiv, Ukraine, being selected by Dutch broadcaster AVROTROS. With their entry Lights and shadows, inspired by and dedicated to their mother, they ultimately reached a decent 11th place in the Grand Final, earning 150 points.

The girls were emotionally moved, yet also strengthened, by the fact that their mother was able to support them in Kyiv, despite her illness.
