Make something beautiful.
Bruce grew up playing cello and piano.
Bruce had a timid time on entering adolescence, meaning his parents were able to coerce him to learn music from 7 until 15 years of age.  This involved much activity beside lessons and practice.
Just at the time he was able to tell his parents to shove the music, he was sent on a snooty private schools type, music camp.
Far from the usual miieu, the 'camp' was in a 4 star guesthouse, in the southern highlands of New South Wales, in the town of Robertson.  Under the influence of a gifted teacher, Tess Jones, Bruce succumbed, realising his love of cello.
Bruce spent much time in the Blue Mountains, west of Sydney (Australia) before moving to Cairns, in 2019.  Bruce has singing tuition, via internet with the amazing Sussane Towers, who is based in the lower mountains.
Bruce's influences include:  Michael Hutchence, Matt Moffitt, Motown Soul, Prefab Sprout, The Blue Nile, Prince, Lenny Kravitz, and Sting.
Bruce's music is varied, including pop, rock, rnb, and edm.  His 2nd single is the rnb song, 'Slow Ride'.
About 'Oh Johnny':

Bruce started writing 'Oh Johnny' in 2019.  The first few lines came initially, but it wasn't until 2021 that the rest of the song came into being.  Says Bruce, 'I knew from those first lines that 'Johnny' might be confronting.   I felt it had a vulnerability that was relateable'.

'Oh Johnny' doesn't have a baseline.

Bass is intermittent from the piano part.

'Johnny' doesn't have a chorus. 

Says Bruce: 'Johnny doesn't have a typical structure.  When I was constructing this song, I kinda of let myself be guided by the song, and it's story.  I was more a passenger, than the driver.  It felt true to the song to let 'Oh Johnny' emerge the way it did.  'Oh Johnny' is a journey'.

'Oh Johnny' was inspired from listening to bands such as The Blue Nile, Prefab Sprout, and Deacon Blue.

Lyrically, 'Oh Johnny' is described as a dark, but sweet song of friendship and loss; the vulnerability of youth, and broken dreams.
The video was filmed around Cairns, Australia, a tropical, coastal area, in the far north of the state of Queensland.
