As a versatile and prolific singer/songwriter, Bruce’s songs, written on guitar and piano, are triggered by inspiration rather than to suit a specific genre; the fertile depth of her work no doubt influenced by the dynamic and eclectic melting-pot of her Manhattan upbringing.
Bruce’s songs have been heard on Dawson’s Creek, King of The Hill, Jake 2.0, The Today Show, Ghost Whisperer, All My Children and more.
Few independent artists have managed to attain the level of exposure Bruce has achieved since the release of her first album in 1997. Her work has been recognized with numerous songwriting awards including first place in the Billboard songwriting contest while her recordings can be heard in multiple network TV shows as well as in several acclaimed independent films. A 1999 Lilith Fair Talent Search finalist, she garnered attention from major music industry publications for her work, including Billboard Magazine. “Home” from her 2001 release, “Soul On Fire” was included as the only track from an “unsigned” artist on a popular Martha Stewart compilation CD featuring Alison Krauss, Barenaked Ladies, Lucinda Williams and other well known artists. Over the years, Bruce has shared the stage with Sophie B. Hawkins, The Nields, Toby Lightman, Richard Julian, Vanessa Carlton, Gavin DeGraw, Livingston Taylor, Lucy Woodward, Joe Jackson and others.
Music Connection calls Bruce’s work “Intelligent” and “full of pathos and gentle ironies.” The MA Springfield Union says, “A lot of women picked up guitars to join the Lilith trend, but Bruce is the real thing.” Bruce is currently working on her 3rd studio album to be released in 2004. In putting this record together, she enlisted her drummer and multi-instrumentalist/Producer, Ethan Eubanks (David Mead, Redtime, Brad Jones of Crash Test Dummies) to help capture the band sound she was seeking. Her band is mostly comprised of Ethan Eubanks, Whynot Jansveld (David Mead, Crash Test Dummies), Ben Butler (Dar Williams, Jane Siberry, Lucy Woodward).
