Who are we

Fools Never Differ are Arjan Crielaard and Gertjan Crielaard. With pitch perfect harmonies, they create must hear acoustic rock. When the two brothers take to the stage, they tell a tale like no other with unbridled passion and musicianship. With several bands and 500+ gigs under their belt they find that it doesn't matter whether you play for 5 or 5000 people. As the song goes, the song remains the same.

Founded in 2016, Fools Never Differ has a serious rock pedigree. The wide variety of influences both brothers have, combined with bands they have played in, makes for a pretty eclectic assortment of songs and covers.

In 2017, the brothers started with Raconteur, a series of EP's that has the art of telling tales at its heart. Over the course of the EP's the raconteur’s story will unfold. A story filled with drama, excitement and a lot of music.


One who tells stories with great skill.

Ra·con·teur : Prologue

A tribute to Paul Simon

  • Graceland

    While a trip to Elvis Presley's Graceland estate is the set-up, it's more about a state of grace than an actual, geographical place. Like Graceland itself, it is a place in which all are welcomed.
  • Diamonds on the Soles of her Shoes

    The orignal intro, sung in Zulu by Ladysmith Black Mambazo, translates roughly into “It's not usual but in our days we see those things happen. They are women, they can take care of themselves.”
  • Under African Skies

    This song is a tribute to two remarkable singers. The first is the man who still leads, Ladysmith Black Mambazo, Joseph Shabalala. The second verse seems to refer to Linda Ronstadt.
  • I Know What I Know

    Instead of writing lyrics to reflect his experience, Paul Simon instead focused on writing words that would sync to the tracks and tell a clever story in the process.
