 JohnBunzli2 Colorado based singer-songwriter John Bunzli writes songs that explore the darker side of the human condition with compassion and sincerity. His rich voice, fraught with the emotion inherent in the tales he tells, flows over the hypnotic, melodic grooves he weaves with his guitar.

For as long as he can remember, John has been surrounded by music. As a child he spent hours listening to his family’s record collection. He bought every one of The Beatles’ records with his hard earned paper route money. But it was a dream he had in high school that changed his life.

“I woke up the next morning and knew I had to have a guitar.” He managed to wrangle his sister’s old beat up nylon string and never looked back.

“I spent years paying my dues with bands in the Boulder/Denver area,” he says. “One day I decided it was time to strike out on my own.”

That decision — which can be heard on his stunning, award-winning, debut CD, “The Well” — has earned him considerable acclaim throughout the Colorado music scene.
