His session credits include songs we have all heard like the song "Shallow" by Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper. Brian is also a go-to bass player for famed producer Dave Cobb which he talks about in this episode. We also get to hear about albums by Barry Gibb and Country great Jamey Johnson among many others.
