Hello, My name is Bryan Robert. I am an internationally active producer, songwriter, musician, and educator. With over two decades of experience working with a wide variety of artists and studios, I know how to deliver high-end productions in the studio and on stage. I am the person you would want to work with for your next project.
For me, the reward of making music is making music. And with over 20 years of experience as a music professional, I bring a lot to the table. I am a no-nonsense person, and I always bring my "Dutch-ness" (others call it bluntness). When you contact me, I will give it straight to you: I will tell you if I think I am the person for the job, and on the rare occasions that I am not, I will connect you to someone who might be.
I am trained to take the entire musical concept into consideration: Who is this artist, and what does their music represent? Which sound is best? What does the song need? When does the song "bounce" sufficiently? This comes naturally to me, considering my work experiences as a session musician, studio technician, artist- and tour manager, and artist- and venue promotor.
As a music producer, I want the artist I work with to achieve their musical goals. I have the skills, knowledge, and contacts to benefit the majority of artists I work with, and I am not afraid to work harder if needed. As a songwriter, I write radio-friendly songs unless the artist I work with, or for, asks for something else. I have written in multiple genres but I am most comfortable with pop, EDM, rock, singer/songwriter, and folk. As a musician, I will do what is expected from me. I can be involved or I can stand back if needed. I know my place.

Working with Bryan was a fantastic experience. He's a great musician, and also really easy to work with. Communicates clearly, brings his own ideas to the table, but is always open to input. I would definitely work with him again.
Bryan is a talented musician, a solid team player, and an overall great guy to work with. He brings his own special flavour to all projects and takes criticism and direction very positively. I have worked online and in person with him and I am very happy to recommend Bryan to anyone seeking his expertise.
A friend & I asked Bryan for help with a live recording/video session, and he was awesome. First of all, he's a good guy. The communication was very clear in all stages, which made it easy to streamline the process. He learned his parts to the last detail, and during the actual session, he showed the kind of skill and professional attitude that makes me want to work with him again very soon.
Interview with Bryan Robert
Q: What's the biggest misconception about what you do?
A: Most misconceptions derive from stereotypes about bassists. People think I was the worst guitarist of a band and, therefore, started playing bass. Not true: I have been playing the guitar since I was 11 and got my first bass when I was 15. Due to a temporary health issue, I temporarily lost my hearing and could not hear the guitar. When I played my bass, I literally felt the music through my bones. This was such a wonderful experience which lead to the switch to bass as my primary instrument. Another misconception people have is that I am a theoretical prick because I am a university level trained music teacher. I want to emphasise that I am an elementary music teacher and that I am specialised in anti-racist and intercultural music. I am not a classical trained musician and I only know the basics of western music theory. And, dude, I am a rockstar.
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: The majority of my work consists of co-writing and (ghost) producing songs. I certain cases, I am involved in the recording of several instruments as well but my services as a co-writer and producer are increasingly more asked for. However, I love recording music as well and I grab almost every chance I get to do so.
Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?
A: I promise my clients that I will do the best I can and that I try to make my additions meet their expectations. I promise my clients my best behaviour, all the knowledge I have, and a cooperating attitude. I make music because I love making music; I work with other musicians for that same reason. I do not need to make music for a living, but I do need music as a creative and energetic outlet.
