Album Notes
Bruce Blakemore grew up on a beef cattle farm in Southwest Missouri, where he spent many hours cutting, raking and baling hay. He began riding a tractor at age eight and used song-writing and deep thinking as a way to pass the time during the long days. He currently raises beef cattle and is a vocational agriculture teacher and FFA advisor in his hometown of Walnut Grove, MO.

The son of a musician, Bruce began singing in front of crowds at the age of five with his father’s band, the regionally popular BLUE MOUNTAIN CLASSICS. During the hours of practice and performances put in by the band, Bruce developed an ear for music and fell asleep many times behind the amplifiers during the long Tuesday night practice sessions.
Bruce began playing guitar at the age of 14 and has since become proficient in many styles of playing including: finger-picking, rockabilly, bluegrass and southern rock.

Bruce’s songwriting could best be described as rural life set to music. Many of his original songs deal with small town and farm-related content and are derived from his own experience as a teacher, farmer and father. Bruce usually performs on stage alone with his Martin D-18 guitar and two microphones.
