Good for the Soul, released on Aslan Records, 09.
Amazon.Com, I-Tunes. Listen to my stories at:



I started life facing adversity. As an 8-month old child, I was rushed to the local hospital and pronounced dead, while laying in the morgue, my mother's persistence paid off, when she insisted they try to revive me one more time, it worked(obviously), the Dr. said, "don't get excited without oxygen this long he will be brain-damaged": "I'll let you be the judge if I'm brain-damaged". (My wife has her opinion)  

Coming off the stage at Panoply Art Festival, an old gentleman grabbed my hand and shook it vigoursly and said, "your story gave me hope". In Tysford, Norway while the winds whipped at 60 mph and 20 below 0, gathered around a roaring fire at a scientific outpost inside the artic circle, friendships were made and undersanding flowed as a southern boy and Norgiean scientists made connections.

I enjoy bringing to light the muddled corners of our thoughts and paradoxical situations that just happen to cross our way. A New Hampshire mom reports that her 9-year old daughter has driven her crazy, only wanting to hear the Coffee Shop Madness story every morning on the drive to school. A Florida psychiatrist has given copies of my cd to his patients to highlight, “their family isn’t the only ones screwed up”.

"With a soothing Southern drawl, Bruce welcomes you right in to a mythic place called Walker’s Bend where all seems right with the world…. until you stay awhile". Meet Uncle Charnel, Aunt Versa and Eula Criner, to name a few, you will laugh, think and cry as these stories unfold. Bruce has a unique way of playing out a “movie in your mind” unfettered by technological restrictions, let your imagination take flight.

Dr. James Smith, family psychologist says “The Drowning of Walker’s Bend” , is the most haunting and uplifting story he has ever heard”.

Making connections with the audience is what I do best.

I have perfomed for the National Storytelling Network national conference, President of the Alabama Sotyrtelling Association and involved in civic and church activities to numerous to mention. I am a father (2-Children) grnd father (3) and a husband (31 years).
