Brockett Parsons

Music Producer, Keyboardist

Brockett Parsons on SoundBetter

I have played in Lady Gaga's band for 4 world tours from 2010 to present including her iconic Superbowl 2017 performance on my unique circular keyboard invention The PianoArc. I have also generated millions of views on Instagram playing my own beats on this one of a kind instrument.

I am a producer/keyboardist who has travelled the world many times and offer full song productions, as well as individual keyboard parts. I am currently working frequently in trap, hip hop, low fi, and EDM styles but I also have strong jazz, classical, and rock backgrounds, so I'm comfortable in a wide range of settings. My live beat videos have gone viral on Instagram and I have had many request for tracks from followers. To me the most important thing is capturing the vibe of the artist so they can reach the soul of their audience. Music is more important today than ever so I try to help the artist get that confidence to follow their dreams.

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

  16. A: I started out as a session and gigging musician in NYC for years. I also worked long hours producing music for various groups in virtually every neighborhood in the tri state area.

  25. Q: What do you bring to a song?
