7 ReviewsEndorse Bruce Vayn
Bruce is a pleasure to work with; multi-talented, friendly and professional with creative ideas and great communication. Very client centric approach, really listens and encourages feedback. Excellent collaborator
Bruce is an amazingly talented musician. I asked him to write three songs for my podcast, and not only did he deliver radio quality tunes, but it legit sounds like he was having fun while recording them. The energy is insane, and his talents do not go unrecognized. Beyond exceptional and beyond my expectations.
I have known Bruce since his high school band days. He was very talented even then. However his talent has multiplied many times since. Bruce and I recently wrote a rock song for one of my Japanese artists who is very famous. Bruce made the track totally by himself. Drum programming, real bass, and many layers of guitars including a solo. Everything sounds great! Bruce and I worked on the arrangement together. He was very easy to work with, came up with great ideas, his studio and atmosphere was very comfortable and professional. Try him, you won’t be disappointed!
I've worked/played with Bruce in various bands and projects over the past 15 years and he has has proven himself time and time again to be an incredibly talented and creative songwriter and performer. Most recently he arranged and recorded several songs for my wedding, including the song that my wife walked down the aisle to, and the song that served as our first dance - he was literally the soundtrack to our wedding - and we couldn't be happier with how everything turned out. Looking forward to playing with him again in the future and can't recommend him enough!
I've worked on numerous records with Bruce over many years. Count on him to deliver quickly and with top quality, whether you need a session player, a vocalist, a songwriter or producer. He will deliver on all counts for you!
I have used Bruce's vocal skills in many songs and commercial jingles for clients here at my studio. Every single time we have him do work remotely it comes back 100% amazing and professional. I normally get tracks back from people and have to spend a hours making things a little more pro with tuning, timing, editing and such...but not with Bruce's tracks. He's seriously an amazing musician, vocalist and producer for just about anything you can imagine. You be hard pressed to find a more committed person to making amazing music and total quality tracks.
Five stars for Bruce! I'm a producer/songwriter with Redbull Records and Bruce is the go to when I need the perfect session musician. Very versatile, locks into the vision and always adds that "whoah" moment to the track.
