Bruce was born in 1953 in Chicago. Son of a music store owner, Bruce was exposed to many musical influences at an early age. He started playing guitar at the age of eight and joined his first rock band in 7th grade. He continued working in the Chicago music scene during high school, eventually joining Jim Peterik''s (Ides Of March/Survivor) band . Touring and a record deal for Epic ensued. In 1984, after hundreds of live gigs and 3000 recording sessions, Bruce moved to LA to focus more on writing.
While in LA, Madonna, Richard Marx, Peter Cetera and Chicago as well as hundreds of other artists recorded his songs. He also played guitar on most of the recordings.
La Isla Bonita went #1 AC in 24 countries around the world and was co-written by Bruce with Madonna and Pat Leonard. Don''t Mean Nothing went #1 AOR and was co-written by Bruce and Richard Marx.
Since moving to Nashville in 1996, he has played guitar on CDs for Trisha Yearwood, Amy Grant, Lara Fabian, Charlotte Church, Richard Marx, Elton John, Gladys Knight, 4 Him, Bryan Adams, Olivia Newton-John and Cliff Richard as well as many others including the new Rodney Atkins CD on Curb. He also appears in the most recent Christopher Guest film A Mighty Wind as (you guessed it) a guitarist.
