Trey Bruce on SoundBetter

I'm an Emmy Award winning Songwriter and ACM Song Of The Year Nominee. I've won 15 ASCAP Awards and written with some of the biggest artists in the world, in Country, Pop & Rock. My songs have been at the top of Billboard's #1 singles chart as a Songwriter and as Producer and they've appeared in TV series' more than 500 times.

I moved to Nashville to be a professional songwriter. I was a rock-kid-drummer from Memphis so, it was a pretty ambitious move, to say the least! Long story short, I signed a publishing deal with one of the majors in my 3rd year in Nash and the 1st song I turned in got cut and became a Top15 hit...... I was delivering pizza the first time I heard it on the radio. It was raining btw. I was suddenly learning the music business on a very fast fly

I've written 100%-ers that get cut and even go #1, but I think people look to me for a special lyric most of the time. A&R & Producers have called me, when they just need something different. I look at every write as a new process depending on what the artist/co-writer is used to or needs. I can write to a very specific target or I can improvise in the moment and go stream of consciousness. Either way, a song that's simply good, is never what I'm trying to write.

I like writing in the studio so I can access whatever vibe & sound the artist hears in their head at that moment. We can start building a track or just grab a guitar or sit at the piano. Basically I have no rules about how to write, I just follow the artist. Zoom, FaceTime, Skype...all work for me.

A song is just words & melody. At that point is can still be any genre...

Would love to hear from you. Click the contact button above to get in touch.

    I've written with Trey on a couple of occasions now and each time I come out of the session pleased, and with another trick for creating a song. We don't settle for lyrics, and we beat and bend the song until it ends up exactly where we wanted it. I definitely recommend writing with Trey if you're looking for someone who is honest, but also doesn't write from ego, just lets consciousness take over during the session

    It was a pleasure to write with Trey and to learn more about him as a person. He was receptive and creative and I look forward to working with him again. Not to mention he has a record of number one hits and a family history in music which we had in common.
