When it comes to music, there is not much that Kim Bullard, who currently plays keyboard with Sir Elton John’s Face 2 Face tour, has not done.

As a producer, arranger, songwriter, composer, keyboardist, and/or music supervisor, Bullard’s career is, undeniably, nothing short of illustrious.

His journey has brought him to places that most musicians may only dream of.


Although Bullard studied classical music while growing up in Atlanta, Georgia, his musical education is largely a product of his experience, on the job training, so to speak.

Almost from the very beginning of his career, Bullard was destined to play, compose, and write songs for some of the music industry’s most prolific and successful musicians ever known.


His career began back in the 1970’s; a decade that saw his Atlanta based band signed to Frank Zappa’s record label and planted Bullard firmly in the mix with the eminent Crosby, Stills and Nash for several years, then another multi-year stretch with Poco.

The 1980’s brought even more remarkable opportunities and exposure for Bullard as he ventured out on tour with the likes of Art Garfunkel and Rita Coolidge then settled into a stimulating, eclectic mix of studio work with such artists as YES (Big Generator), Cheap Trick, Heart, Cher (Chronicles), Kenny Loggins and The Doobie Brothers (Cycles) to name a few. In the 80’s, Bullard also wrote songs for and co-produced the record “Why Kant Tori Read” with Tori Amos.


Then in the 1990’s, yet more extraordinary good fortune came Bullard’s way as he continued his work in the studio(s) arranging, composing and performing with such notables as Nine Inch Nails (Downward Spiral-Remixes), Bette Midler (Bath House Bette), Foghat (Road Cases, Buck Cherry (Buck Cherry) and the Goo Goo Dolls (Gutterflower).


This, the first decade of the 21st Century, has been as much about exploration and change for Bullard as it has been about the music. For example, in the early 2000’s Bullard performed on, composed and music supervised several television shows and feature films including; Mean Girls, Blades of Glory, Thirteen, Mr. 3000, 10 Things I Hate About You and American Idol.


As if this was not enough, other notable examples of Bullard’s melodic expressions include his work with REM (Monster), P. Diddy (It’s All About the Benjamin’s), Carrie Underwood (Inside Your Heaven), and Kelly Clarkson’s (All I Ever Wanted).
