Zane is a great producer, he captures the emotional essence of every song we’ve created together, tugging at the heart ‘n’ soul of the listener!

Kevin Nevel (lyricist) 2023

When you are working with Zane, things go the way they should. Communication is straight forward and most importantly drama free. Zane is the most consummate professional anyone could hope to work with. Beyond the music itself, Zane is well versed on the business of music. He will deliver the song to multiple music platforms and see to it that the tune is registered with BMI. How about the finished product? I always judge a song by how well it holds up under multiple listenings.  Zane’s tunes and arrangements stand the test of time. You can be assured of spot on vocals and instrumentation when you work with Zane. Zane and I have cowritten two songs together and it is a solid feeling seeing my name on the finished work with his.

Paul Norman Tapp (lyricist) 2023

Zane is a great man to work with and has a very distinct sound to his music. He always finds a way to give life to the lyrics. Communication is always quick, efficient and friendly. 10/10 would recommend working with him

Zoë aan de Wiel (lyricist) 2023

I had the pleasure of working with Zane Kuchera on our song “Taking Stock”. He was very easy to work with and a complete professional. I have never worked with another musician who was as thorough and efficient as Zane. In no time at all our song went from just an idea to streaming on several platforms. His experience as a producer as well as a publisher also insures that our song is in good hands and in the best position possible to be heard by film and music supervisors.

Carrie Croteau (lyricist) 2023

I’m fortunate to have collaborated with Zane Kuchera for several years now.  If you’re looking for a new collaboration and it feels like you’re shooting in the dark, all your concerns vanish when you work with Zane.  I don’t have to tell you what a great musician, singer, producer he is, you can hear that for yourself.  What I can tell you is this guy conducts his business affairs with such style, moral fiber and professionalism.  You won’t worry about copyright, or distribution, just focus on being the best you can be, Zane Kuchera does that every day!

David Murray (lyricist) 2023

I have been working with Zane for the past 2-3 years and have been impressed with his musical abilities.  Zane is able to take my lyrics from the page and craft excellent melodies and a complete song, including mixing and production.  It has been a pleasure to work with Zane and to hear the wonderful songs he produces using my words.  I look forward to many more years of great, collaborative efforts!

John Longmuir (lyricist) 2023

Working with Zane has been one of the most effortless collaborations I have ever been a part of. As the vocalist and composer, Zane allowed me to take charge of the storytelling aspect of the song, carving its emotional palette. His instrumental and vocal melody birthed life to my lyrics and conveyed the story that I intended to share. I would highly recommend this songwriter to anyone who is interested in creating meaningful and heartfelt pieces.

Aisha De Freitas (lyricist) 2023

Zane is a knowledgeable passionate teacher. What I enjoy most is his willingness to gear his lessons to your needs as a student, often asking you what you are more interested in studying or where you feel your weaknesses are. He is always ready to answer your questions, and his enthusiasm and love of teaching is apparent from the first lesson.

Elaine Orsillo (Musician / Music Student)

What I like most about Zane Kuchera is he has the perfect combination of technical expertise, musical insight and sweetness of temper.  His studio is so comfortable and professional, but what always drew me the most was how personable he is.  He’s kind and considerate, a good listener and truly cares about people and their musical vision.  It’s a winning combination.

Amy Syd Babcock (Songwriter / Studio Client)

Zane Kuchera  has many years of experience working as a composer, arranger and music producer on projects for clients worldwide.  His technical, sound engineering  and music theory knowledge, paired with his many years of practical experience in the studio is an asset to any songwriter, vocalist and musician and that, together with his patience and easy manner, makes him a pleasure to work with!  Zane, being a singer himself, is sensitive to the needs of the artist, which is an added bonus!

Zola Shuman (Musician / Studio Client)

After working with Zane for 17 years I have more to say than can fit into a short recommendation.  Zane has a rare mix of talents that set him apart from many professional studio producers.  He is both a teacher and a follower, an expert and a learner, a highly experienced musician and a lifelong student of music’s fundamentals, an authentic critic and an open-hearted listener, a detail-oriented engineer and a ‘go-for-it-all’ artist’s champion.   Zane’s embrace of such a wide range of qualities have meant that I have permission to take risks and feel confident that, start to finish, Zane and his studio resources will be there to guide the way.  Truly, I have gone further with my music than I ever imagined thanks to Zane’s work and his remarkable commitment to both the highest quality of sound engineering and the highest quality of personal artistic style.  Anyone working with him is in the best of hands to manifest their creative vision.

Martha Rogers (Songwriter / Studio Client)

I’ve known Zane Kuchera for close to two decades now through music collaboration and composition, and his insight and skills have only gotten better over time. Although a formal musical education is an important asset, to have the ear, and have the gift of music from the soul and be able to convey that to other artists’ projects is a unique talent. Zane’s expertise in production, arrangement and composition takes a musical seed and lets it bloom. I highly recommend Zane Kuchera for any artist’s project.

Jon Gilbert Leavitt (Composer / Studio Client)

Zane’s studio is polished, professional, and high-tech, but also comfortable and welcoming a singer’s dream, much like Zane himself.  Highly recommended!

Richard Wayne (Actor / Studio Client)

I spent the morning listening to the songs on this CD. In a few words (well, more than a few) Mr. Kuchera’s music is unique, beautiful, powerful, personal and moving. When a singer can open up his soul and share his feelings with people he’s never met — that’s an artist. These are not merely lyrics set to music. They are moments and images accompanied by simplicity in music which, in their own way, produce rich images and memories for the listener to savor. By feeling comfortable about himself he, in turn, feels comfortable about sharing these feelings. That’s admirable!  If there is one negative about this CD it has to be this — I wanted to hear more. I eagerly await the next collection.

David Morrow (Playwright / Studio Client)

The (Shakespeare) production (of As You Like It) was memorable for the original music composed by Zane Kuchera. Shakespeare’s script is punctuated with many songs, and Composer Kuchera set Shakespeare’s words to music, allowing the cast to sing Shakespeare’s words as well as say them.

Gazebo Players of Medfield (Publication)

Zane Kuchera is fun and sensitive to the subtle nuances of lyrical expression as it fit the music and has a natural flair for ability to create Film Score background.

Katie Cameron Sage (Musician, Burbank, CA)

Zane Kuchera is a talented, conscientious, music producer/writer/ recording engineer. I hired Zane a number of times to produce/record my original songs. Zane is skilled in music production and has a professional attitude to match. I would not hesitate to recommend Zane for a variety of creative musical projects, including scoring for jingles and film/video.

Jamie Murphy (Musician / Songwriter / Recording Artist)

Zane worked with me composing the music for the five songs William Shakespeare wrote for his play, AS YOU LIKE IT. Unlike some composers, Zane readily understood what was needed and went about the task without flinching! Working with Zane was indeed a pleasure and I’d do it again in a heartbeat, his music is unique, beautiful, powerful, personal and moving. When a singer can open up his soul and share his feelings with people he’s never met — that’s an artist.

David Logan-Morrow (Playwright)

In every song, Zane wears his heart on his sleeve, and it’s a gorgeous heart. Zane’s strong tenor rings out with understated candor.

Lindsay Cobb (Folk & Acoustic Music Exchange)

You were professional, experienced, skilled, and extraordinarily reliable. You were familiar and confident with your work, and it was an absolute pleasure to work with you. Not to mention you were friendly, supportive, and easy to work with! I highly recommend you for any type of composition, transcribing, or notation work.

Melissa Li (Playwright, Composer “Surviving The Nian”, The Theater Offensive, Boston, MA)

I was so pleased to witness Zane’s debut as a solo cabaret singer at Amazing Things this week. Zane is a true delight as a person: kind and gentle and compassionate with a well of emotions that is both deep and very near the surface. These words could also be used to describe him as a performer. In a set that included John Bucchino, Jimmy Webb, and original work, Zane charmed and moved all of us and delivered a very special 40 minutes of warmth on a cold night. Bravo, Zane!

Wayne Fritsche (Actor/Songwriter/Vocalist)

An engaging performance where Zane, with his tall and handsome elegance, peers into your soul with his clear blue eyes and caresses you with his warm soothing vocals. He delivers the song directly to your heart from his with a beautiful balance of raw emotion infused with passion and musical technique.

Zola (Recording Artist/Songwriter/TulipSongs International)

Zane Kuchera sings with conviction – allowing the words to come through him and have meaning for him and the audience. His lovely tenor voice is a pleasure to hear. You were absolutely wonderful – so open, so sincere, so communicative, so real. And you sang beautifully. Thank you for a splendid evening.

Leslie Holmes (Host, Amazing Things Arts Center)

Zane’s unique music and production creativity is shown off here in this song’s gorgeous instrumental intro, middle and outro  riffs, and in its  pretty melodic verses that are enhanced by Zane’s sweet vocal tones in his interpretation of  Bogi Taylor’s Breezy lyrics.
