Class description

— It’s also possible to join this Workshop physically at Lynk & Co’s flagship club at Rokin in Amsterdam. You can find all the info here.

In this Workshop – hosted by Other Echo and mobility concept Lynk & Co – we welcome Sophie Straat and her producer Wieger Hoogendorp.

Dutch folk singer Sophie Straat and Wieger Hoogendorp (who is also the creative, musical backbone of the befriended hit act Goldband) had a fantastic year. One that included winning an Edison Award for their debut album ’t Is Niet Mijn Schuld’, multiple shows in the Ziggo Dome, and millions of streams. In less than no time, Sophie was hailed as the queen of a new generation of protest singers.

Sophie and Wieger will tap into the subtle art of making concept music that carries a message, such as protest songs. They’ll walk you through topics like defining a powerful key message, using this as a red thread for a track, and eventually making sure the audience receives the track well and makes an impact.

The Workshop will be hosted by Steven van Lummel.
