2SG Record w/ Emmy Winning Producer, Trey Bruce!

Published by 2SGM on

2Steel Girls will be recording their second CD to be released early 2015.  Their Producer will be none other than Emmy Award Winning Songwriter, Producer Trey Bruce.

Trey Bruce, moved to Nashville just in time for the 1990’s country music boom. Trey was a rock drummer from Memphis so…..what could go wrong? He credits a copy of Springsteen’s “Tunnel Of Love” as the bridge he had to cross to make the trip, lyrically & spiritually. Luckily, Trey’s first demo got cut immediately by Shelby Lynn and was a top 15 hit so as a result he signed his first publishing deal with MCA Music. After 3 years at MCA, in 1993, Trey co-founded a small indie publishing company, Big Tractor Music, with record producer Scott Hendricks and there he received 13 ASCAP Awards, an Emmy Award, 5 #1 singles, multiple top 5 & 10 hits and an Academy Of Country Music Song of the Year nomination. During the Big Tractor years Trey developed a love for coffee and long nights in the studio so he became a record producer. Trey’s first and still favorite record to make was Chris LeDoux’s critically acclaimed “One Road Man” followed by 4 Trace Adkins albums and Rebecca Lynn Howard’s “Forgive”. Over one thousand songs later, Trey left Big Tractor in 2005 to partner with Kenny MacPherson and became VP of A&R and Creative for Chrysalis Music in the Nashville office. At Chrysalis Trey singed and developed new artists, such as GAC’s KingBilly, wrote a ton of new songs and built a catalogue of roughly 800 songs in 5 years as well as cuts in the rock format and #1 singles in Australia and Canada. In 2010 Trey partnered with The Royalty Network in NY/LA and since that time has cuts in pop, rock & country formats as well as film and tv.

The paragraph above is a quick scan of over 20 years in the music business from Nashville to around the world and back! It would take a river of coffee and a mountain of guitars to really tell the story of this true troubadour prisoner!
