Bruce first began performing live in New York City in 2003 at the Continental Club, CBGB, Acme Underground, Arlene's Grocery and other clubs. In 2004 he was selected to perform in the M.E.A.N.Y. fest[1]. He was also the Associate Editor for Relix Magazine, an independent music magazine[2].

Moving to Seattle in 2006, he quickly became involved in the local music scene, performing at local clubs[3], writing for national music magazines -- including interviews with Todd Rundgren[4] and American Idol judge Randy Jackson[5] -- and working as the executive producer of the Summer Meltdown, a 4-day music and camping festival.

He was invited to perform at the Bite of Seattle in 2011 and 2012 and the Summer Meltdown in 2009, 2010, and 2011[6]. He was also selected to perform at the 2010 Winter Warmup at the Tractor Tavern[7].

  6. “His tender, nicely composed songs recalled John Denver and particularly Assembly of Dust’s Reid Genauer, who Bruce strongly resembled in both voice and all-out-there-on-the-stage delivery. Telling stories about faces in the fire with blinding insight and singing simple songs full of tender vibrations, Bruce showed himself a tunesmith to keep an eye on.” -- Dennis Cook "Summer Meltdown",, 8/21/09
