This is a seriously soulful rendition of Justin Bieber's "Love Yourself" featuring very funky bass grooves and a masterful recreation of the melody line on bass.
NOTES

His rendition and interpretation of Justin Bieber's "Love Yourself" is just a foretaste of the funk that he is recording for his listeners. Bryant hopes you enjoy this and the other singles.

This is a great acoustic and organic version of Milton Brunson and the Thompson Community Choir's classic Gospel song.

You must hear this version of the song to believe it. Check it out. I am sure you will …

NOTES
Bassist, Songwriter, Arranger and Producer Bryant Wilder began his career in music 26 years ago in The Bronx. His interest in music was forged, in part, by the daily mid-afternoon band rehearsals of his cousin who lived in the same building.
