Ted Bruner is an American musician, songwriter, and record producer, originally from St. Louis, Missouri, United States.

Bruner began his professional music career when his band Colony was signed to MCA Records in 1998.[1][2] In 2002, he relocated to Los Angeles and began writing and producing for Rondor Music/Universal.[1][2] He left Universal in 2009 and signed with Warner Chappell Music,[1] and then signed with Kobalt Music Group[3] in 2012. He has written with and/or produced songs for Katy Perry,[4] Miley Cyrus,[4] Kesha,[5] Selena Gomez,[1] Plain White T's,[2] Three Days Grace,[6] My Darkest Days,[6] Gina Schock,[1] Cavo,[7] Neil Sanderson,[8] Matt Walst,[8] Barry Stock,[8] Brad Walst,[8] Joey Moi,[9] Gavin Brown,[9] Marie Digby,[10] Jessie James,[6] Natalie Walker,[11] Rusko,[6] Bonnie Mckee[6] among others, as well as songs in film and television.

In the book It All Begins with the Music, Bruner is quoted as saying "Music is a rebellious path; it's all about freedom, and if you lock down and listen to people who are only worried about making a buck, that will shave off all the reasons you got into it in the first place- to have an adventurous and exciting life. If you keep that mindset, then the music will keep coming to you."[2]

In an interview in Riverfront Times, Bruner is quoted as saying "I feel like the best songs start out with a kind of therapy session with the artist finding out what inspires them, digging into the skeletons, and getting very personal about why they've chosen to get up on a stage and sing, you know? It's nuts, so if you dig a little, you'll find the good stuff."[12]
