I've been using Steve Bryant for 25 years now on every session I do, whether it's a record I'm producing or if I just need a killer demo of a song. Rather than tell you what a great bass player he is, or all around guy... just know that I won't do a session if he isn't available. He's that important to my sound and sanity!

Over the years, we have done sessions together where we quickly jump from Country to Pop to Hard rock, back to Country, etc., and Steve Bryant rolls with it and never misses a beat! I know it's going to be a good day when I walk into a session and see Steve there. He always has a smile on his face and always brings the pocket and big fat tone!

I just imported a bass track played by the great Steve Bryant on a hard-driving rock song. The part is perfect from a taste, timing, and tuning perspective. The tones just sit in the mix with no engineering wizardry needed. Simply outstanding! If you are in the Nashville area, he can come to your session. If you live elsewhere, he can record it remotely. Top end skills. Top end gear.

Steve Bryant is one of the most talented, punctual, friendly, joyful, energetic, and inspirational musicians I have ever had the pleasure to create with. His bass playing is so exceptional that I break out smiling. I am in gratitude he shares his talent and friendship with me.

What a great teacher!!! Working with Steve Bryant is an absolute delight. In our many sessions together, he is always articulate, methodical, patient, and sincere - not to mention always great for a laugh. His approach to teaching chord theory is nothing short of exceptional! As a result of listening and putting in the time to get the concepts under my fingers, I now physically approach the bass differently, have a noticeably richer tone, and find myself creating melodic bass lines in the moment, without having to think about it.

From the moment I ran across Steve Bryant's YouTube videos, I knew he was offering something different, and special. I found being mentored by Steve just as beneficial as his music instruction. Steve can not only advise on music business situations, he is also one of the most kind individuals I have ever met. I am a better person for knowing him. His tools and techniques have allowed me to perform at higher skill levels with confidence and play some pretty cool gigs along the way!
Steve Bryant practices what he preaches, and does it in an enjoyable, understanding manner. The "show me this lick" method doesn't work, but Steve's approach does. More importantly, he cares about his students and their progress and is always supportive.
