Recording artist Justin Bruce releases brand-new, highly-acclaimed single "One More Good Time"

With very strong press reviews and large stream numbers right out of the gate, the hot new single "One More Good Time" from artist Justin Bruce has taken the indie-rock world by surprise!  The collaboration between Justin and lyricist Bryant Sutton resulted in an alternative-rock track that sounds like a bluesy blend of Staind, Stone Temple Pilots, and Kenny Wayne Shepherd!

"One More Good Time" tells the story of a middle-aged man tormented by the downward spiral of addictions, mental anguish, and heartbreak over lost love and deftly moves from somber and pensive acoustic to fist-pumping power chords!

" Lovely songwriting + amazing instrumentation!  We think this would be a great fit for our Facebook audience :) " - Samantha Santoyo, Music & Fashion Blog.

" A more than enjoyable listen bolstered by some crisply delivered lead vocals that sit with ease amidst the rolling guitars, dynamic live kit drumming backbone grooves, thumping bassline low end pulse, tight harmony lines, reflective yet raw lyricism, ruminating intimate arrangement and a clean mix/master! Audibly well crafted. Props are due! " - Music On The Moon.
