Jan Smit and Volendam Music founded record Label VoSound Records in the spring of 2012. After finishing his new record ‘Vrienden’, Smit decided it should be the first release on their brand new label, partnering up with Heartselling to take on music distribution. Vosound Records’ first achievement was simultaneously their first #1 hit in the Dutch Singles Charts with Echte Vrienden (a duet with Gerard Joling). The album Vrienden kept powering through and consequently reached #1 in the Dutch Album Charts, respectively the label’s second achievement. Later that year the young label also received a platinum award for selling more than 50,000 copies of the album Vrienden. These events combined make it the most successful launch of a record label ever, globally. This milestone was followed by Jan Smit’s releases of De Rockfield Sessies and the successful album Jij en Ik. Currently artists such as Jan & Anny and George Baker have joined the VoSound family. George Baker released the album Seventy on VoSound in honour of his 70th birthday, while Smit teamed up with his sister Monique Smit and created the 2 Kleine Kleutertjes project, which also became a huge success. VoSound Record’s latest addition is young and talented singer Henk Dissel, who is currently working hard on his upcoming debut album.
