On a Warm October Night...Some Originals, a New Song and a Cover with Bruce Hilliard

Thanks for listening. I've had a few requests for some original music...and maybe a new one. Here it is, Polyanna:


You don’t even know me , so how can you show me what to do

You don’t even need  me, if only for less lonely night

You shouldn’t go on thinking we’ll be someday

And turn that  darkness into day?

I don’t know


Pollyanna won’t you please come out of the rain

You know you’re driving me insane

Always looking for a miracle

Always searching for revelation

How can a loser ever win?

You’re always looking for a miracle

Always searching for a supernova

Somehow you always find your way

You find your way  

You find silver lining, somewhere were the skies are always blue

Wake up when your makeup starts to run

Boo hoo’n when you do the things you do 

You always find a way to make things work

Catch a falling star and you’ll get burnt

No, not you (ding)

Bruce Hilliard

Born in Seattle, raised in Aberdeen WA, Bruce Hilliard is a singer, guitarist and songwriter with a song list influenced mostly by pop/folk rock of the 60s-80s. He has been an opener for Heart, the Ramones, Dr. Hook, Wishbone Ash and Eric Burdon.
Early in his career Bruce completed Bachelor Degrees in Music and Journalism from Washington State University and, while never allowing a hiatus from performing and songwriting, joined corporate America in marketing and sales. That rocky road led him back to his passion and now records and performs live and with great appreciation to be back in his jam.
He currently resides in Mukilteo WA and hosts the Better Each Day Podcast Radio Show. His musician interview based show has featured recording artists including John Oates; Grand Funk Railroad’s frontman Mark Farner; Steve Fossen, bass player and co-founder of Heart; drummer Carmine Appice; and Dave Bickler, lead vocalist (Eye Of the Tiger) of Survivor. The weekly half hour show has over 181 episodes and is becoming a strong platform for musicians of all levels to showcase their music and their backstories.
