About Bruce

Bruce has been creating original music for more than three decades. NJ born, in a household with older siblings, he was exposed to the exciting music of the 60’s and 70’s from an early age. A great deal of time was spent with his sibling’s record collection, absorbing and learning. Much time was also spent playing the family piano and banging on a Charles Chips can, making up songs all the while. After playing in a variety of cover bands as a teen, Bruce connected with the friends that would form The Red House. After agreeing to focus on writing their own music, the band got busy, releasing their first album, “There is a Window”, in 1986. The Red House achieved great notoriety for their writing and performances, and in 1989, signed a major label record deal with SBK Records. The band's eponymous 1990 release was widely acclaimed, with the single “I Said a Prayer” reaching #30 on the Billboard rock tracks chart, and the accompanying video appearing in rotation on MTV. Bruce then began writing and performing as a solo act. Since then, Bruce has released 8 solo albums, 2 EPs, and a 30 song “Singles Collection”. Bruce was also a member of “The Susan Rumors”, releasing a 10-song pop masterpiece in 2017. Bruce is always working on new songs, and doing the occasional performance.
