Brian Ward is one of Los Angeles’s most in-demand musicians as an award-winning bassist, producer, session musician, mixing engineer, and multi-instrumentalist.
After attending the prestigious University of North Texas jazz program and performing as a member of the world-renowned One O’Clock Lab Band, Brian graduated Magna cum Laude with a degree in Jazz Studies (Bass Performance) and moved to Southern California to further his career. He immediately found a home in the highly competitive Los Angeles scene, where he has performed, recorded, and traveled internationally with world-renowned artists like Aubrey Logan, Mark Lettieri, Us the Duo, Jane Monheit, Ruslan Sirota, Ilya Serov, Downbeat LA, and countless others.
Brian continues to perform and produce prolifically in the greater Los Angeles area and beyond. He most recently orchestration-assisted and recorded multiple instruments for the 2019 Golden Globes Awards, with composer and orchestrator Geoff Stradling (Mad Men, Smurfs, Batman: The Dark Knight Rises), as well as mixing and producing for artists like Elliot Deutsch Big Band, Astyn, and Jacob Mann under his own entity, Studio B.
