Johnny Bulford, a singer/songwriter whose music has depth well beyond his years, is capturing audiences in the pop and country scenes. His style of music has been compared to the likes of Vince Gill, Garth Brooks, and James Taylor. Johnny has established himself in the upper echelon of the country music community. At the early age of 20, Johnny's earnest and likeable personality, natural talent, and passion for music has enabled him to open for headliners such as Collin Raye, the Warren Brothers, Josh Turner, Trick Pony, Emerson Drive and Chuck Negron, formerly of Three Dog Night. Johnny performed with Charlie Craig, Marty Brown and The Wilkinson's at a writers show this year for Fan Fair in Nashville. Johnny was a Florida finalist in the 2003 Colgate Country Showdown, and missed the 'big prize' by just a few points. He performed a jaw-dropping performance in the 2004 Colgate Country Showdown and earned himself first place. He won the Florida state title in November 2004. Johnny is currently competing in the 2005 Colgate Country Showdown and has already advanced to the state level. Johnny Bulford received the 2004 Award for Best New Performance Artist/Writer, in the category of New Country, for the Southeastern United States Region given by the IMAA. He was recently featured on a one-hour morning radio program with Dottie Wynn, where her audience welcomed him warmly. Johnny has been working closely with former MCA recording artist Marty Brown on a new album. Johnny penned nine of the thirteen songs which add to the beach flavor of the album. 'Southern Thing,' and 'Sail Away with Me,' co-written by Marty Brown and Johnny Bulford, capture the heart of the album and the essence of Florida. Marty Brown and his son, Lil Marty Brown, personally wrote 'See Ya Later Alligator,' for Johnny - a country music smash which clearly sets this album apart from the rest. 'Now,' co-written by Larry Bastian and Johnny Bulford is bound to be a big hit. Johnny performs in Orlando with a five-piece band at various festivals including the Florida Music Festival. He performed for the 4th of July festivities at Lake Eola in Orlando. The combination of Johnny's soulful voice, passionate songwriting, personal integrity and honest work ethic make him a rare and refreshing addition to the country music community. It's only a matter of time before the rest of the world discovers what Central Florida has just begun to find out.
