Jason Gallo-Gaffner on SoundBetter

As a singer, songwriter, producer and multi-instrumentalist, I’ve been fortunate to work with many different artists in various capacities. From charting pop artists and viral indie stars to the who's who of EDM. Lorde, NoMBe, Feki, Thomas Newson, Mahmut Orhan, John Dahlbäck, Universal Music, Warner Australia & Atlantic Records just to name a few!

I want to help take your music to the highest possible level! From playing guitar or bass and help with writing, to tracking vocals. I love working on different genres and consider myself a jack of all trades. I also have a great network of musicians and vocalists as well here in LA.

I play guitar, bass, some keys and sing. Let me bring my talent and skills to your project and take them where you've only dreamed of going. I'm happy to jump on a call or zoom/gchat etc to make sure we are on the same page.

First step: Send me something so I can hear you (links or attach mp3/mp4 to message), even if it's a phone recording or rough demo, quality isn't important. Let's make your idea and make it a reality! Look forward to hearing from you.

Endorse Jason Gallo-Gaffner
  1. Review by Grant G.

    Jason is a really incredibly talented songwriter, producer, instrumentalist AND vocalist. I've worked with him on my own solo project, on his duo project and on countless pitches for dance artists, and I can say he always brings his A Game. His attention to detail really serves him well as a producer, and it is only matched by his instincts for melodies and lyrics as a writer. He's a stubborn laborer who always wants the best product. He really cares about the music he creates.

    Set him loose on your projects today and you won't regret it!

  2. Review by Mike Annuzzi

    Jason is the go-to musician when you need to make anything Sound Better. Whether he is playing, writing, doing recording session gigs or performing live, he has an innate and trained ability to create memorable musical moments that take projects to completion. He is a true artist and understands how to make other artists shine in their work process. His personality contagious and work ethic is admirable. Take the opportunity to work with Jason!

    Jason is an incredible songwriter and musician. The songs we have worked on together always get stuck in my head. The parts he writes are always well thought out and executed, and sit in an arrangement perfectly.

  4. Review by Nicholas H.

    I have been working with Jason for years and he is an amazing songwriter and producer. He’s also a fantastic instrumentalist. Never lacking ideas. One of the most professional musical persons I’ve ever had the honor to work with and continue to work with! Jason is a five star human being and if you had the chance to work with him I see you take it!

    Jason is an awesome session guitarist, bassist and vocalist. He has great toplines and vocal delivery. It's always fun making music together and I'd highly recommend him to anyone looking for a talented instrumentalist, vocalist, songwriter and producer on their project.
