Bruce Wayne McLellan is a highly creative, diverse, and experienced songwriter. He started writing songs as a teenager to convey emotions that words alone were inadequate to express. It has been his lifelong passion and dream to be recognized as a songwriter. Though he has actually written songs onstage, he understand clearly that it’s easy to write a ‘good’ song but to write a ‘great’ song takes an exponentially greater effort. Lyrics and music must merge to ‘dance as one’ to simultaneously tell a story and inspire the heart and soul of the listener.
He has successfully written music in a wide and diverse range of genres including: folk, country, rock, jazz, blues, bossa nova, reggae, funk, soul to name a few. His music mentors include: Donald Stratton (former horn player for Count Basie), Jon Hendricks (inventor of vocalese), and Steve Green (a nationally known jazz guitarist.)
