It’s a Wonderful Life
Bruce Greer, originally of Longview Texas, graduated with honors from Baylor University in 1984 with a degree in Music Theory and Composition, having won a full scholarship in Composition. Upon graduation, he became a Creative Director for Word Records and Music. He spent six years as a songwriter, arranger and producer for Word, recording several projects as a Word piano artist. In 1990, he left Word to pursue a full-time writing and concert career. Since that time, he has become one of the most popular and highly regarded writers for church music in the country with hundreds of titles and projects published by a wide array of leading publishers. He has won a Dove Award, Christian Music’s highest honor, for his arranging and orchestrating. His solo concerts, as well as his artistic collaboration with Grammy-winner Cynthia Clawson, have taken him around the world, performing in churches, conferences and leading concert halls. He frequently collaborates with lyricist Keith Ferguson on musical theater works, most notably their popular musical adaptation of It’s a Wonderful Life. Their musical HIDDEN, based on the Book of Esther, is currently in development with the Dallas Summer Musicals. He and his wife Kim have four grown sons, two daughter-in-laws and a precious granddaughter.
