"It's alright Ma...I'm only bleeding"
My name is Bruce Johnson and I'm a songwriter based out of Rogers, Arkansas. Let me start off by answering a question I get quite often. No, that's not me singing or playing on any of the songs I have on my profile. I guess you could say I'm a "non-performing" songwriter. I have zero, 0, nada, zilch interest in being on stage. I realized a long time ago that my strength is in the creation of music, not the performing of it. Although I love writing music, I feel my strongest suit is the lyrical end of a song. To me, there's nothing like taking a blank piece of paper and painting a picture with words.
Probably one of my biggest flaws as a writer is I'm not very good at self promotion. I've done minimal pitching of my material. With that in mind, I truly realize it's a "God Thing" that I've had 20+ of my songs cut.
I appreciate you stopping by and hope you've had a chance to listen to some of my material. I wish you nothing but the best.

"When we were recording my group's second album, I called Bruce at the eleventh hour to ask him to help me finish the lyrics to a song I was right in the middle of recording. Bruce is such a prolific lyricist, he called me back within a half hour with more words than we needed. He's an amazing songwriter. I feel honored to call him my friend."
Billy Buchanan, lead singer of Fusebox
