about

Four distinctly different, but somehow connected pop melodies that are grounded in the musical eras that guide them, but remain free from being pigeonholed into any specific genre. The infectious melodies and pop beats will have you hooked from the start.

about

Bruce Robert Boise, Idaho

Sometimes I feel like my head is radio receiver for random melodies floating around the universe. I have the experience, desire and know-how to take those melodies and create a complete piece of music from it. As long as I can remember, that’s how it’s generally worked for me. I rarely set out to write a song. They just sort of pop into my head, and I give form to the idea. ... more

Track Name: Alpha Waves Beta Waves
I’ve got a confession to make
It’s always
Just under the surface
And oh
It’s an endless need
And oh
Why should I feel any guilt

I woke with the sun on my face
A ladybug
Tickling my cheek
It’s warm
Sweat makes my dress cling
It’s blue
With little tan flowers
Wasting all my hours
On these stupid little things
That I do

I’m gonna
Leave it to someone else
I don’t think
I could care any less
It’s dumb
But that’s the way it is
I’m saying
And there’s nothing you can do

I breathed the little breeze
It carried
Earthy scents and water
Spray
Runs on by regardless
It’s gray
With little white breakers
Subconsciously remembered
To subconsciously forget
To move
Track Name: Tiny Robot Heart
I thought that I could explain it
I'd hoped you'd see my side
Shut your mouth and listen for once
And keep an open mind

I think you know
I wear my heart on my sleeve

I don't think that makes me stupid
I know I've got something to say
Maybe you can stop and ponder a bit
And see that I’m making some sense

I have to wonder
If I'm getting through to you

And maybe you can't be blamed for this
Girls aren't supposed to be smart
But you're coming off as an arrogant ass
With a tiny robot heart

Take these words to heart
Cuz it affects your entire life
Track Name: After The Fall
I
Saw you standing
Alone
At the party

And you
Couldn't have known
Just how hard
That I fell for you

And thinking about it these days it seems
There was no room for doubts
Only big dreams
And our love
Was all there was

And now
After the fall
Our flat
Feels so empty

I wander
Through these rooms
And in each
A reminder

Of how we used to act like kids
Laughing and playing
Ignoring our bills
Without
A care in the world

All the time in the world has never been
Given to famous lovers in tragedies
Why should I expect any different
Now

Happily ever after was promised me
If I was true and stayed on the path of love
But it seems that’s just childish
Dreams
Track Name: Oui Oui Merci
I'm a lucky girl I've got a boy
Who makes me giggle and gives me joy
He's the finest thing that I ever did see
It's the little things he does for me

And he loves me
He told me so
Looking fancy
And we're ready to go
Oh he needs me
Yeah
He loves me

Now you can ask any girl in town
He's the catch the cat’s meow
Black leather jacket tight blue jeans
And he's so cool just like James Dean

And he loves me
I know it’s so
When I shiver
He makes me glow
Don’t need a sweater
Yeah
He loves me

You might be thinking that he ain't got the time
And I for one wouldn't fall for that line
But I'm telling you now he's got a sensitive side
He's gonna take me away and make me his bride

Down by the ocean
On the windswept beach
He held me tight
I could barely breath
Kissing salty kisses underneath the sun
And I knew then he would be the one

Azure skies
White gray clouds
Dappled sunlight
Strobed shadows on the ground

Cobble path
Wet dewy grass
Down by the river
In the park behind my pad

Mmmmmm he loves me
Mmmmmm he loves me
