Biography

Brulen, a pseudonym of Bruce Bierman, represents the first half of his first name, and the first part of the last name of his greatest influence and friend, rock legend John Lennon.

Known as Bruce to those in business, and Bru to his friends, Brulen is a multi-talented and self-educated established expert in several fields of endeavor, from music to engineering and computers to counter-surveillance.

He has engineered and toured with bands including the Grateful Dead, Hot Tuna, and Journey, and has top musicians working with him on his music. Having started playing music at an early age in New York City, he was introduced to the former Beatle at age 17, and was able to gain valuable songwriting and recording skills directly from Lennon, as can be heard on the tracks he performs.

Taking a detour of sorts to the computer business, being responsible for developing hibernation sleep mode technology which is built into every copy of Microsoft Windows, Brulen is now back to music, writing, recording, arranging and producing songs like ‘Little Bird’ and ‘Big Eyes,’ a song written for the 2009 movie of the same name.

His love for music has brought him full circle, right back to where he once belonged. That long and winding road has led him back to where his life started: singing, writing and playing songs. Brulen shares his thoughts, music and memories with you and sincerely hopes you will enjoy the genuine spirit he brings.

Lyrics

We Are All The Same

Written By: Brulen

We Are All The Same
Words & Music by Brulen
----------------------------------

We are all the same
No more playin’ the blame game
Feel the suffering, heal the pain

Healing hands
Helping lands just a few
And it’s all in spite of you
‘Cause there’s something we must do

We are all the same
No more playin’ the blame game
Feel the suffering, heal the pain

Smiling faces
Full of grace all races
We can all make dreams come true
See what you can do for you
And there’s nothing I won’t do

What are we supposed to start to do
It mustn’t be in vain
Everyone should see our point of view
And no one to complain
All we need do is break on through
Let’s try to ease the pain

Feeling joy
Every girl and boy
But it’s up to me and you
And our love will shine on through

We are all the same
No more playin’ the blame game
Feel the suffering, heal the pain
We are all the same

We are all the same
No more playin’ the blame game
Feel the suffering, heal the pain
We are all the same

Little Bird
Words & Music by Brulen

Catch the sun fly away
And I’ll pray
Little little bird fly

Time to go on your way
And today
Little little bird fly

Fly so high in the sky
You’ll be fine
Little little bird fly
Little little bird

And you’ll be above it all
When you come back please do call
You can call on me
And I’ll set you free
To fly away so

Little bird fly ‘way
Little bird fly ‘way

Little little bird fly
Little bird fly

And you’ll be above it all
When you come back please don’t fall
You can call on me
And I’ll set you free
To fly away oh

Little bird fly ‘way
Little bird fly ‘way

Have some fun on your way
Holiday
Little little bird fly

See the stars up above
My little dove
Little little bird fly

You’re the one I still love
I’m thinking of
Little little bird fly
Little little bird

And you’ll be above it all
If you come back you should call
When you call on me dear
Yes I’ll always be here
If you are falling

Oh, little bird fly ‘way
Little bird fly ‘way
Yeah, little bird fly ‘way
Little bird fly ‘way

Big Eyes

Written By: Brulen

Big Eyes
Words & Music by Brulen


I could spend my life kinda blue
Sentimental over you
Painting great big eyes
Look like Madam Butterfly

You can conceal
Whatever's on your mind
You can’t hide What’s inside
Your great big eyes

A rainbow in the sky
Who says animals can’t fly
It’s a jungle out there so beware
Animals are everywhere
Really gettin’ a high my oh my
Lookin’ through those great big eyes

What do you see from the other side
Standing tall when day is done
Those great big eyes

That twinkle in your eye
It’s so fine
Who’s your secret Valentine

You can see everywhere
Love to share
You know you have to stop and stare

Dancing in the dark
Central Park
Eyes so true

What’s inside those great big eyes
You can’t hide those great big eyes
What’s behind those great big eyes
What’s inside your great big eyes
