Stien den Hollander (Dutch pronunciation: [stin dɛn ˈɦɔlɑndər]; born 8 November 2000), known professionally as S10,[a] (Dutch pronunciation: [ɛsˈtin], es-TEEN) is a Dutch singer, rapper and songwriter. She began her musical career in 2016, and was signed to the Dutch hip hop record label Noah's Ark [nl] in 2017.[3][4] In 2019, she released her debut studio album Snowsniper, which went on to win an Edison Award.[1] Den Hollander is set to represent the Netherlands in the Eurovision Song Contest 2022 with the song "De diepte", the first Eurovision entry to be sung in the Dutch language since 2010.[1][5][6]

Early life and education

Den Hollander and her twin brother were born on 8 November 2000 in Hoorn, North Holland.[7][8] Since her birth, she has had little to no contact with her biological father.[8] She grew up in nearby Abbekerk and later in Hoorn, where she attended secondary school.[8][9] After completing the MAVO curriculum in 2018, she has been studying at the Herman Brood Academie in Utrecht.[9][10]

Throughout her teenage years, Den Hollander suffered from mental health issues, including experiencing auditory hallucinations and depression.[10] When she was 14 years old, she was admitted to a psychiatric hospital following a suicide attempt.[10] She has been diagnosed with bipolar disorder.[11]

Career

In 2016, Den Hollander self-released her first mini-album Antipsychotica, which she recorded using her Apple headphones and uploaded to the online audio distribution platform SoundCloud.[3][4] Shortly after the release, she was discovered by rapper Jiggy Djé, and signed with his record label Noah's Ark [nl] in 2017.[4][12] One year later, she released a second mini-album, titled Lithium.[13] In her songs, her struggle with mental illness is an important theme, with both mini-albums being named after types of psychiatric medication.[13][14]

In 2019, her debut album Snowsniper was released.[1] The title is a reference to the Finnish sniper Simo Häyhä, which Den Hollander explained in the media as being "about the cold-heartedness, the solitude" and that "in essence, a soldier strives for peace, just as I strive for peace with myself".[15] The album was awarded an Edison Award in February 2020.[9] In November of the same year, she released her second studio album Vlinders, which peaked at number 5 in the Dutch Album Top 100.[16][17]

In 2021, Den Hollander scored a hit with the single "Adem je in", which she wrote together with Jacqueline Govaert.[14][18] On 7 December 2021, it was announced that she had been selected by the Dutch broadcaster AVROTROS to represent the Netherlands in the Eurovision Song Contest 2022.[1] Her entry "De diepte" was released on 3 March 2022 and is in Dutch, making it the Netherlands' first Eurovision entry to be sung in the language since 2010.
