“Zane Kuchera's first CD, Patterns, is truly a do-it-yourselfer. Have you watched This Old House? Kuchera's show would be "This Old Recording Studio." He composed, arranged, performed and produced the entire CD, employing electric keyboards and a software application (and although he can burn his own disks, he depends on MP3.com for packaging and distribution). But if the production is...

“A basic premise of all art is to share. Zane Kuchera strongly  achieves this with  "Patterns". The more I listened the more I felt like I was taking part in a personal invitation to experience what is Zane Kuchera. The experience is first of all extremely pleasant.  Kuchera's music takes you to many places and diverse viewpoints. I frequently found...

“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

"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...

“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....

“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...

“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...

Reviews

  • I love the music melody and chord parts on One to care ,  followed by the voices inside verse …. and later the remembering verse ….” – Z. Shuman (Songwriter/Performer)
  • “Beautiful words/sentiment, lovely melody and performance!” – H. Auerbach, PhD.
  • … Soothing.” – M. Kirk
  • Very Chick Corea!” – K. Cameron S.
  • Very pretty and a haunting melody…” – Rick K.
  • “This is really cool, Zane.  My ears instantly perked up at the second chord.  You have such a wonderful way of serving up something harmonically unexpected that makes me want to hear more.  And there were several times where I think the phrase crossed the barline with some kind of hemiola or stretched out beat.  That has the same effect of drawing me in.  I LOVED your harmony at the end.  It has just enough dissonance to evoke a sense of another place and time. “ – M. Rogers (Music Educator/Songwriter)
  • “Love both lyrics and music. Really like this and I believe you found the soul of the song with music” – Judy Appel, Mystic Fish Blog (Mysticfish.info)
  • “Well done! Nice catchy hook on chorus – bravo!” – Zola, Tulip Productions (zola.us/Singer/Songwriter)
  • “Zane, these songs are both so rich and full.  I just listened once so far and I’m moved again by what a difference in your music when you have a good lyricist.  The phrasing makes sense.  The chord progressions and the places of resonance or tension have meaning within the message of the text so the music and the lyrics work together.  It’s really cool to hear you get to use your abundant talents with someone who can match your level of experience and skill.  Keep going!” – M. Rogers (Music Educator/Songwriter)
