    I hit up Brian with a total rush job and he banged out a perfect bassline in expert fashion by day's end! Wish I could give him TEN stars!

    Brian took my song and gave it real backbone! A true pro that delivers quickly--and affordably! Will be working with this guy again!

    Brian has worked alongside me to create some awesome music. He is professional and allows room for the music to "speak". I love the fact that he is driven toward excellence as well. Both projects I've asked him to help on turned out better because of his tireless efforts. If you're looking for a great addition to a project, Brian is the guy.

    Brian Barton is impressively versatile and talented. He is great to work with and always gives you a great foundation to play on. He is confident, smooth and in control. He can lay down anything you want underneath. His groove is solid and steady. I played with Brian at church years ago in Los Angeles and I always loved working with him. If I messed up, he was always there to not only cover my mistake, but also give me a smile and encourage me all in the moment. Super fun personality and very humble.

    Brian has played bass for me in a number of shows over the past four years. Always shows up to gigs prepared, well rehearsed, with a positive attitude. Not only is he a fantastic bass player, he is a loyal friend. I couldn’t recommend him enough.

    Brian is uncompromisingly professional, talented, and on point with his timing, rythm, pocket playing. He delivers what's needed NOT what he thinks should be played. Love playing with him

    I've performed with Brian in several different bands over the last 15 years or so. He is a talented bass player who can play a variety of musical genres expertly. He is always well prepared for rehearsal, and professional in every way. It is without reservation that I recommend Brian Barton.

    Having played with Brian several times for our church, he ALWAYS was prepared and never once sounded lame. Don’t discount the playing for church part, as the songs always change week to week so you never really feel tight... Not only is he a very good bass player but a real good guy on top of it.
