One of the pioneers of California’s Redwood Coast Sound, Bruce Guynn has made it his mission – both solo and with his band – to pick you up and make you move. His naturally sweet singer/songwriter style, which is coupled with a blend of uplifting soulful rock, organic Americana, pleasant blues, and honeyed R&B, has seen Guynn rewarded with three Number Ones and seven Top Thirty Songs on both the USA and International radio charts.
Guynn’s latest single, ‘Time Will Tell,’ is a plea for the citizens of the USA to unite beyond the approaching instability. The song comes with a music clip, directed by Stu Wilson, which is more of a peace offering than a video. Guynn gets right to the point as he takes to the mic in his studio; is it possible to be a democracy in a nation where there is so much hypocrisy? Subjects such as the presidency, Black Lives Matter, even the Covid-19 pandemic – have all served to polarise rather than unite society. It’s a strong message, delivered as a soft rock ballad, but no less powerful than if it had been a heavy rock track.
As Guynn plays each instrument to record its respective part, we see overlays of the current conflicts, creating contrast between opinions and aggression; Guynn however remains positive, as he reminds us that we are in control of our future, and where we will go. If we co-operate, and focus the power we hold, as a collective force we will be unstoppable. Only time will tell, if it all works out.
