RSR133 – Femke Weidema – Composing, Producing, and Creating Your Own Record Label

How to write songs in Nashville with artists from around the world, produce records that are successful once they leave the studio, and create and grow your own record label.

My guest today is Femke Weidema, a musician, producer, songwriter, and composer for film and TV. A Dutch native starting out at Berklee College Of Music, she has also spent time in LA  working at Hans Zimmer’s prestigious Remote Control studios in Los Angeles, won the ASCAP Harold Adamson award, studied with Lin Manual Miranda at Chicago's North Western University with the Johnny Mercer Foundation, and worked for Richard Gibbs, and Don Grusin.

As a musician she sang with Blink 182's Mark Hoppus on the soundtrack for Fired Up, played accordion on several indie movies, played guitar and programmed on ABC's 10 Things I Hate About You, and scored a season of Disney's Binny und der Geist.

She was also recently the subject of the Dutch Documentary series "Don't dream, Do!" about her success as a producer in Nashville. Femke has a studio at Liz Rose Music, a publisher in Nashville she works with closely for all her country material and has recently gotten her cuts on Seth Ennis with Sony, and others.

Her productions are gaining international attention with a UK viral chart mention for Four Walls on SYPS and BBC1 and her goal is to create a global hub in Nashville, working with artists from Thailand, China, Canada, the UK, Germany and Scotland that either come to work with her here, or she goess to them with her portable studio. So In 2017 she decided to create a platform for the artists she thinks the world needs to hear and this is how LV Music was born in partnership with ToneTree Music.
