Bruce’s philosophy about good songwriting is that songs should be uncomplicated in style and format, should tell an interesting story,
and above all be entertaining. “The best songswriters have that knack to be able to tell a story with the fewest words possible.
I try to use as few words as I can to tell my stories,” he says.
