Howdy. I'm a songwriter originally from St. Louis, Missouri. I guess my professional music career began in college when my band Colony signed a deal with MCA/Universal Records. After touring the US & Canada and one more record deal, I moved to Los Angeles to try songwriting for Rondor/Universal Music Publishing. It's there that I started writing and producing with up-and-coming artists, making friends in the music biz along the way.

After writing & producing a string of songs with Katy Perry, Selena Gomez, and Miley Cyrus, I moved to Warner Chappell Publishing. There I began landing songs on rock radio, including my first #1 single. I currently reside at Kobalt Music Publishing, and live with my girlfriend Tess and our cat Solo in Boulder, Colorado, exploring these crazy mountains & writing with artists from around the world.

I manage myself, so feel free to contact me at tedbrunermusic@gmail.com. Below are some of the songs I've written & produced.
