It was my second gig with Joe, and I couldn't be more satisfied. This time I asked him to write full topline to my song and he did a fantastic job. He wrote great lyrics too. I asked a few changes after listening to his first version, he was absolutely open minded and did everything I asked. Fantastic guy to work with. Thank you!

Joe is by far one of the best singer-songwriters you can work with.

Joe absolutely nailed the vocals I needed for my latest song. I had a vision of how I wanted the song to sound but he took it to a level I didn't know was possible! I am extremely happy with how everything turned out and I highly recommend him to anyone looking for quality vocals.
I love when i work with someone that can deliver fast without compromising quality. Joe is certainly at that level and that for me is extremely important.
I will be working with him again and i certainly recommend him to those reading this review

Superb vocals, fast turnaround, great communication!
Another excellent and distinctive delivery. Thanks.
Wow wow wow incredible! Amazing vocals yet again. Thanks so much.
Worth 10 stars! Excellent delivery on vocals and brilliant effort on interpretation. Highly recommended. Thanks.
Joe offered great lyrics for my song, and then backed up his vocal claims by singing good clean vocals with lots of nice dynamics. He has that clear innocent young male tone, which this song needed. Good job for my first experience with this vocalist.
Joe is an unbelievebly good singer! First of all his voice is so outstanding you start thinking he is a famous singer who decided to give away his vocals almost free. Second, he sings all notes right since first take so you save your time on further corrections of vocals. And he brings the soul in.
Amazing talent and great voice. Super unique and creative singer.
Joe was quick, talented & a pleasure to talk with. We understood each other really well. He was able to make my production into a story.
Joe is a stellar talent - with a vocal ability that's versatile and beautiful. Love working with him - and I'm already looking forward to our next project. Strongly recommend!
Great job. Very professional and quality talent.
Nice work. did well with my idea
Joe is a very good interpreter and author. He is musically well-prepared, with an original and precise voice.
I hope to work with him again
Interview with Joe Brackman
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
Q: What's the biggest misconception about what you do?
A: I look younger than I am
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 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: 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'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: 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 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 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: 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: 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: 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: 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 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: 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 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 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'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: 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 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: 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
