How Blaudzun got his artists name - Michael BlaudzunAfter a career as background singer and session musician, Dutch singer / songwriter Johannes Sigmond (born 1974) started a business of his own. He did that alias Blaudzun.

Sigmond is not very secretive about his pseudonym, as some others are (see for example I Am Kloot): he tells anyone who wants to know that Blaudzun is the (last) name of a fairly anonymous Danish racing cyclist:

'A cyclist from the forties who raced alongside Joop Zoetemelk.'

It is important to mention Joop Zoetemelk, because a much younger Blaudzun (first name Michael, born 1973) is an active cyclist as well.

Sigmond however makes his way in the world using the name of Michael Blaudzun's father, Verner Blaudzun (born 1946).

Active: 2006-present, NLD
