I'm a committed & passionate singer/lyricist with years of experience having worked on over 200 songs for clients. I have millions of Spotify streams, Radio Airplay, & songs signed to labels. I'm a creative, easy to work with vocalist with a degree in English Literature for lyrics and honours as a musician such as scholarships to top music schools
As a seasoned singer with experience of singing and songwriting on over 200 songs it would be a pleasure to work on your next track and give it the best possible chance of becoming a hit in the music industry. I have recorded vocals for a wide range of genres including pop, RnB, jazz and classical music. I've been offered places on big tv shows such as the voice, the X factor and other big tv shows, but am most comfortable recording from my professional home studio in a well-treated vocal booth for clients such as yourself. I love writing creative and catchy vocal hooks and always give 110% to my projects. I also gig around London in an original act and get a lot of work from that but still love to work for people on Soundbetter.
Please get in touch and try out my vocals on your next track. As a versatile and experienced singer, I'm certain you will be pleased with the result and it will be my pleasure to work on your track.

Hey I just loved working with Joe. He was so enthusiastic and made an excellent job of responding to my requests for a few changes. An excellent voice particularly when "driven". Awesome for rock.
Joe has a unique incredible voice. He is very professional and timely. Looking forward to working with him again.
Great working with Joe. We had some fun with timezones (me being in Hawaii and him in the UK) but made it work well, and his vocals really add to the track I'm working on. His additional harmonies were spot on also and lifted the song even more. Thumbs up!!!
I've worked with Joe on what is my first music project as an EDM producer and I'm completely satisfied with the work of a great professional. He is a very helpful person, extremely capable and with a beautiful voice. In addition to working within the times he promises, he also provides an all-round "artistic" support, always providing advice and feedback with respect for the producer. Highly recommended, thanks a lot Joe!
It was great working Joe. He took a lot of care to nail the emotional character of the different parts of the song, and delivered a very soulful version that really enriched my song. Excellent communication and professionalism, as well.

Interview with Joe Brackman
Q: Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?
A: I am proud of the song I wrote for a DJ called 'Winter'. I wrote the song very quickly and he used a one-take vocal recording. The song has gone on to gain almost a million Spotify streams and lots of airplay
Q: What are you working on at the moment?
A: I am working on multiple projects for other clients and songs that get placed in film and tv
Q: Analog or digital and why?
A: Digital. It's the world in which we live. However, I do love analogue when possible and try to minimise digital workflow
Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?
A: I promise to stay in constant communication with you and guarantee you will love the results because we will talk about your exact needs. I put my heart and soul into these projects
Q: What do you like most about your job?
A: I love the freedom it provides. I love the creativity involved in writing and singing, and I love helping artists achieve the musical goals for a song
Q: What questions do customers most commonly ask you? What's your answer?
A: I get asked for demos a lot. I answer that my showreel and links on Soundcloud should give you a good idea of my vocal quality, however, if your style is very different then we can figure something out
Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?
A: If you've written the song I need you to send me a scratch vocal and lyrics so I know how to sing the tune. If you want me to be creative and do my own thing I will ask you for any references you would like it to sound like
Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
A: Make sure you listen to the vocalist you are about to hire and talk through exactly what your needs are. That is so important to me because I want you to be happy with the results
Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?
A: Headphones, a piano, paper (to write music and lyrics), a book on philosophy, a coffee machine
Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
A: I picked up guitar when I was ten and from there picked up violin, mandolin, keyboards, drums and also learned to produce an album when I was 14. That's also the time I started writing songs. I was in a touring covers band for a while and the last few years I've been working as an online topline singer and writer full time. I was awarded a scholarship at a music school in Los Angeles in 2018 and have been offered publishing deals this year but I'm still waiting for something that's more favourable. I like working freelance so I'll be doing this for a good long while :)
Q: How would you describe your style?
A: As a singer, I love the gritty stuff - like Imagine Dragons, and believe I sing those songs well. However, I do love smooth vocals in acoustic tracks also. I love so many styles so I don't like to choose just one!
Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?
A: Hans Zimmer hands down (bad joke!). Love his compositions and his recent collaborations with artists like Sia.
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: I am comfortable across a lot of different genres but most of my work deals in pop, rock, RnB and EDM
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: My strongest skill is my ability to adapt and create quickly while remaining focused on attention to detail. i'm also really easy going so just message me if you have any questions or concerns and we can talk about it
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: I bring a strong amount of creativity to the song and work hard to add catchy and gripping vocal melodies. As a lyricist, I attempt to keep the listener captivated in the theme of the song and as a singer, I intend to impress
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: Typically I will repeatedly listen to the track the client sends me so I can absorb the feeling and direction of the song. After correspondence with the client (to ensure I know what is required) I will then work hard on each section of the song to ensure it is exactly what the client is after - lyrically and vocally. I then send the song to the client and if happy, we sign off and it's on to the next song. If revisions are needed (which is very rare) we can then talk about what needs to be altered and get the desired results
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: I record in a professional home studio (with a vocal booth )through a high-end SE Electronics Condenser microphone. This runs through and Focusrite 2i2 interface with excellent preamps and into a Mac running Logic X
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: I love some of the greats like Stevie Wonder, Queen, and recent bands like Imagine Dragons and Maroon 5. I'm also a huge fan of movie composers. If you want to geek out we can talk about that stuff ;)
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: I get a lot of work as a topline singer and writer. Sometimes it can also be just one or the other
Q: What's the biggest misconception about what you do?
A: I look younger than I am
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: Never release your music until it is ready. Don't wait too long until you think it is ready or it never will be
