Bryce Vine

New York transplant Bryce Vine seems right at home in his adopted city of Los Angeles, and the neo-R&B sound he’s developed reflects this bi-coastal background.  But his love for the City of Angels is transparent: “I work out of a house in Hollywood Hills that we converted into a studio. Every day on my way there I get to drive alongside a city wide view of LA.  We’ll all get together on the deck frequently and watch the sun go down. We realize how lucky we are.” Mixing the old-school authenticity and style of east coast hip-hop with the laid-back and confident sound of west coast G-Funk, Bryce’s music captures listeners with its upbeat grooves and holds their attention with carefully crafted lyrical flows.

Los Angeles, CA
bar
Post & Beam
"The owner is a man I know well, to say the least. I have spent the later part of my 20s especially admiring his drive to make the world a happier place through food. He opened his restaurant Post & Beam about 5 years ago in a neighborhood around Baldwin Hills that was nowhere near hip or up-and-coming. He built a place that today has helped shape the diverse community of interesting and thoughtful people in the greater Los Angeles area. This man is my father, Brad Johnson (he also opened the original Roxbury and Georgia in the 90s).  When I do drink, I prefer their Negroni or an Aviation." — Bryce Vine

The Federal Bar
"The Federal Bar in North Hollywood has real deal karaoke nights. Like a full band i.e. guitarist, bassist, keyboardist, and drummer. And these talented musicians have memorized an arsenal of songs for anyone who signs up before the night closes. It's pretty damn cool." — Bryce Vine
