Jürgen Joherl


A freelance bassist & lately also composer/producer of instrumental grooves from Amsterdam, NL. In the past I had been also a semi-pro member/bassist with 2 bands in first South-Germany & later in The Netherlands. Most notable band involvement so far had been my gigging for a while with "The JJC Helder Band", a A'dam based group with a.o. guitarist Joop van Nimwegen (Ex-Q65/Livin'Blues) and drummer Pierre van der Linden (Ex-Brainbox/Focus) of a certain Dutch Rock legacy. Since 2003 I'm now focusing on composing, arranging, recording & finally also producing own original & mainly instrumental tunes in various styles & flavors. I self-released my (digital) debut album "Heartland" in 2005 and a 4-track EP-Preview for my overdue upfollowing new album "Moving On" in 2009. Hopefully the whole album will be now out in 2020/2021...to be continued!
