Bob Bernstein. Oscar-winning pedal steel player in LA Latino music scene

Bob Bernstein is an unlikely member of the Los Angeles Latino fusion music community.  He has been playing music since he was 10 years old and fell so much in love with the sound of a pedal steel guitar that he saved up his allowance and bought one while he was in high school and the rest is history.  That history includes winning an Oscar for Best Original Score on Brokeback Mountain, working with Hans Zimmer on the Man of Steel, live and recorded performances with Freddy Fender, Tanya Tucker, Jerry Lee Lewis, Emmylou Harris, Mark Chesnutt, Dwight Yoakum, Michelle Shocked, Curt Kirkwood from the Meat Puppets, Erasure, Gatemouth Brown, and Hank Thompson. But he is particularly proud of his Latino music. For the last 5 years, he has toured and recorded with Mexican superstar Joan Sebastian and has contributed steel to recordings by other popular Latin artists including Juanes, Vicente Fernandez, Jenni Rivera, Lucero, and La Santa Cecilia, Ulli and the Mexicans. He says that his work with Latin artists makes him especially happy because he feels he has helped break down musical borders and introduce the pedal steel to a whole new audience.
