"I'm not a teen pop star and my music isn't for everyone," says A Man Called Bruce...
“A Man Called Bruce was chosen as Chattanooga Songwriter Association Writer of the Month for July.”
“Within the past few months, A Man Called Bruce has made appearances on WRCB-TV's '3 Plus You' and WDVX 102.9 FM in Knoxville.

He's also been spotted facing the mics at Chattanooga venues such as Sugar's Downtown and Southern Comfort (next door to Sugar's).

“In today's "on-demand" world, unsigned artists like Cleveland, TN based songwriter "A Man Called Bruce" are choosing to market their music without a record label. They're not doing it alone. Online retailers such as CDBaby.com play an important role.”
“WUTC-FM 88.1 is a true friend to local music artists. As part of their service to the community, the station allows local songwriters to play on-air and promote their concerts. In our world of "corporate" media, public radio remains the unsung hero.”
