Lifelong musician Bryan Daste is maybe best known as a pedal steel guitarist, but also specializes in clawhammer banjo, upright bass, and backing vocals. A talented recording engineer and producer, Daste is as skilled as he is versatile. “[He] seems to be able to play just about anything he wants to” – Joe McSpadden, nodepression.com
I’ve been recording and touring with a wide variety of artists for the past 13 years. Highlights include touring Europe with Courtney Marie Andrews (one of Rolling Stone’s “10 New Country Artists You Should Know”), sharing the stage with the Head and the Heart as a member of Matt Hopper and the Roman Candles, playing countless shows with Emma Hill and Small Souls, and contributing session work for Jeffrey Martin, Evan Phillips, Pretty Gritty, Myrrh Larsen, Anna Tivel and many others.
As a recording engineer and producer, I’ve worked on albums for a wide variety of artists and genres. Rather than ascribe to a one-size-fits-all production style, I highlight what’s unique about your music.
