Eight Hundred Miles is Rick's most recent recording. Musicians from Kansas City, Nashville, Austin, and New York participated in the sessions, adding color to the acoustic guitar driven songs; some stripped down and intimate, others rocking with a rootsy abandon.
**Bruner writes songs and stories from the American experience . Warmly recommended, this musical journey.

**Like all the best singer-songwriters, Rick Bruner's got stories to tell, and "Eight Hundred Miles" is chock full of 'em. There's a hint of John Martyn in Bruner's delivery which adds to the appeal, and on songs like St. Jacob's Well, the sound is augmented by ace guitarist Greg V who expands the vibe, without taking anything away from the song. There are three great tracks featured on Myspace - I think you'll agree that Rick Bruner may well be the complete singer-songwriter package.
