Country music has always been a part of Bruce’s life, from "Classic" country to today’s "New" country. Born in Vankleek Hill, Ontario in 1958, he began performing at age nine at local schools, clubs and fairs with the support of his parents, Henry and Ruth.
In 1983, with the confidence gained through those early performances and the support of his long-time friend, Terry Carisse, Bruce recorded two singles, "City Lights" and "One Time Affair", which were produced by Terry and charted by radio stations across the country. His first album, "Missing You", was recorded in 1985 and was selected by Country Music News as one of the top twelve album releases of that year. Over the years, Bruce has charted fifteen singles, one of which, "Is That Your Heart Beating or Mine", remains his most requested song. Bruce and his band have opened for such stars as John Conlee, Tom T. Hall, Ian Tyson, Merle Haggard, Marty Stuart, Diamond Rio, and Tommy Hunter, and his television appearances include CHRO’s Country Express, MCTV’s That Country Feeling, CBC’s CHEO Telethon, CJOH’s Newsday, the CCMA Country Music Awards Show on CTV, and The Joan Kennedy Show.
For the last several years, Bruce has entertained annually in Las Vegas for the United Steelworkers International Conventions at the MGM Grand, and he and his band. Borderline, recently opened for Diamond Rio at the Las Vegas Hilton.
Bruce and his wife, Dorothy, have three children, Mitchell, Shaunna and Alexis.
