How to make protest music with a message

by Sophie Straat & Wieger Hoogendorp

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

Genre: Pop

Level: Beginner

What you’ll learn

Sophie and Wieger will tap into the art of making concept music with a message, such as protest songs. They’ll walk you through topics such as 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 it makes an impact.

The Workshop is hosted by Steven van Lummel.


⁃ How to pick themes

⁃ Producing a song featuring the topic

⁃ Making sure it makes an impact


The Dutch folk singer Sophie Straat - and Wieger (who’s also the creative, producing backbone of the befriended hit act Goldband) - had a fantastic year, including highlights such as winning an Edison award for their debut album ’T is niet mijn Schuld’, multiple shows in the Ziggo Dome and over millions of streams. Thus, Sophie Straat has been claimed as the queen of a new generation of protest singers in less than no-time.
