Originated from a morning ritual that started during a surf trip in Panama. After an early morning surf session, four friends would return from the beach to make their well-deserved breakfast: oats, bananas, milk and… a little bit of rum! While at first this may seem a little bit odd, it has proven itself to be the perfect start to a fulfilling day.
This is what Rum for Breakfast stands for: enjoying life, but with a certain sense of awareness that you’re living it. Just like pouring a bit of rum into your healthy breakfast is!
The person behind Rum for Breakfast is the Dutch singer-songwriter Machiel Scholten. His songs are personal and reflective, touching upon day-to-day topics as well as deeper, more philosophical matter. Sometimes with a tear, sometimes with a smile: just like live.
Together with fellow musicians Rum is finishing his debut-EP, which will be released end of May. Stay tuned!!
