Jochem Broersen on SoundBetter

I will help you bring your song to life. Whether you have a finished song or "just" a cool vocal with a guitar or piano part, I will help you create the song you envision. I specialize in pop and rock music, but I'm open to adding flavor to whatever genre you are vibing to!

With over 35 years of experience as a musician, I know what sounds good. Not only to me but more importantly, to you. I have worked with a wide range of singers, songwriters, and musicians. I will bring all this experience to the table while helping your song reach its maximum potential. I can help you find the missing parts in your song or strengthen the vision that you had all along.

I am dedicated to bringing your song up to the level YOU envision. Production, for me, is not throwing sounds onto your track, to make it sound like me, but rather about bringing YOUR vision to life. Keeping true to your song and sound is key for me.

Next to production, I can mix your song but also assist in the distribution and/or promotion of your song. I will help you to maximize your reach if applicable, with(often free) advise, about distributors, contracts, rights, etc.

Would love to hear from you. Click the contact button above to get in touch.

    Starting this project was a great new adventure, combining music and poetry was something we both had never done before. Right from the start Jochem was full of enthousiasm, creativity, and professionalism. This created a real good atmosphere to create in, and a safe space for me to share my personal work. He was always very responsive to feedback. The outcome was above my expectations, the music supports my poetry beautifully and brings it to another level. The production is of great quality.

    Working with Jochem was a joy and a privilege! Truly an outstanding musician, guitarist, and producer on all accounts...and an equally outstanding gentleman. He exhibits the kind of professionalism that one comes to appreciate when working at the top of the game. Truly an excellent experience. Highly, highly recommended!!!

    Jochem is super talented and professional in so many ways, great musical contributions, really improved my music, and he has also been a huge help in getting me up to speed with how the music industry works. Communication with Jochem is great, he’s incredibly helpful and patient and reliable. But most importantly; it’s a pleasure working together with him and the final result was a track that I’m super pleased with!

    Jochem is great to work with: he doesn't stop until the project has reached its full potential and the people he's working with are pleased with the result. It's easy to communicate with him, you can't say that about every producer, so that definitely is a huge plus for collaborating with Jochem.

    We recorded a few covers together, where I did the singing and lyrics and Jochem produced and mixed the songs. I'd definitely recommend him.

    Jochem is honestly very comfortable to work with: he listens to your vision and adds his own vision to it as well. This creates a perfect end result for all the parties involved. Thank you Jochem for working on our song!

Interview with Jochem Broersen

  1. Q: Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?

  2. A: I was involved in te creation of an album about depression. I co-write the music, produced the music and mixed the tracks.

  4. A: I'm working on helping a few customers releasing their music and working on new original rock and country songs.

  5. Q: What questions do customers most commonly ask you? What's your answer?

  8. A: How would you describe the song/end product once it is finished to your satisfaction?

  9. Q: How would you describe your style?

  10. A: Modern, with a touch of old skool sound. But mostly I focus on the customers need instead of stamping my style on your work.

  11. Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?

  12. A: The Pretty Reckless, would be awesome work with Taylor, her voice is amazing and I love the direction of the band.

  13. Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?

  14. A: I will be dedicated to giving you wat you want by listing to your wishes and keeping you in the loop along the way!

  18. A: The idea that a producer is the same as a beatmaker.

  19. Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?

  20. A: Look at the personal click more than the music. Check out online presences and see if you feel a connection. The music on the profile is just what people are working on atm. Most producers can create whatever you want :).

  30. A: Disable tracks to see if you feel it is missing and don't be afraid to kill your darlings if it makes the song better!

  32. A: I mostly work on rock, pop, or modern country songs. Next to that, I also have worked on Spoken Word records.

  35. Q: What do you bring to a song?

  36. A: I bring 35 years of musical knowledge to your song. I can help you figure out with works together, what might conflict and what might be missing or what could be too much. You'll have a true partner, working together on your vision, instead of a black box.

  37. Q: What's your typical work process?

  38. A: First I like to get to know a bit more about the project; what inspired you while writing the song. What is your vision for the song and do you have references. Next, we'll discuss what you want me to help you with and what you see as the end result. After that I'll get to work, keeping you in the loop at any level you feel comfortable with.

  • Bedut single CloesterMar 26, 2022

    Recently I finished the production and mix of the debut track of Cloester; a young and talented rock guitarist. The track is a combination of the old-school Brian May sound (think back to the Sheer Heart Attack album) and the more modern sound of Joe Satriani. We recorded the guitar tracks from my home studio and the drums where played remotely. 

  • Finsihed Spoken Word albumMar 01, 2022

    I'm very honored to have been asked as a songwriter, producer, and mix engineer for the Spoken Work album of Myrthe Nauta. The album tells the story about living with depression; from the subject's viewpoint as well as the viewpoint of the ones living with someone who is dealing with depression. The album will be released on the 31st of March!
