The Common Linnets are a pure country and bluegrass-band centred around frontwoman Ilse DeLange, who is also a very successful solo-artist in The Netherlands. The other members are JB Meijers, Jake Etheridge, Rob Crosby and Matthew Crosby. At Eurovision 2014 in Copenhagen, Denmark, the group represented The Netherlands with the song Calm after the storm, winning their semi-final and eventually earning the second place in the grand final.

Although Ilse DeLange’s singing partner at Eurovision, artist Waylon, decided to leave the band because of artistic differences, Calm after the storm became a huge hit across Europe. Since then, The Common Linnets achieved much success, earning various prizes and establishing an international career.
