Bruce Enloe

Enjoy crafted and crafty lyrics, heartfelt and occasionally catchy songs that ramble over genres, migrate through the minefields of sensitive subjects, and sometimes giggle through the silly side of the same… There are stories and story songs from the interesting life of the well traveled, adventure-steeped driver at the six-stringed steering wheel of your evening… Trust him, he knows the way home.

Bruce Enloe is a singer –songwriter performing original songs that are equal parts folk, Americana and Beatle influenced pop. Bruce was born and raised in Bryan-College Station, Texas; the town where Lyle Lovett met Robert Earl Keen… He has since added California, Europe and Canada to his list of both musical influences and travels. After several years fronting the Burning Sensations, Kemptville Ontario’s largest band, he is currently striking out on his own on a series of listening room style acoustic shows.

At the age of 15, he was kicked out as the singer of his first band in the mid 80s, a thrash metal party band named ‘Shit Happens’, because he had good range but not enough ‘sustain’… This began a pattern of mixed successes and failures in the music industry, tempered by healthy dose of… well… more realistic career choices (a trained chef and local foods advocate) Bruce is at heart, however, that rare creature– the unflappable optimist, and the relentless craftsman. Over his 45 years he has written hundreds of songs; from the early punk, metal, funk-punk, noise rock, indie, novelty country and Beatle pop outings of his high school and college years (many written with songwriting partner Kevin Allen later of Merge and Interscope record’s …And You Will Know us by the Trail of Dead) to a resurgence starting in the 2010’s as frontman of an Ontario based sprawling folk/country/rock band The Burning Sensations. With this,’Kemptville Ontario’s Largest Band’ Bruce has released two full length albums; 2012’s ‘Bonfire’ and 2015’s ‘Unseasonably Cool’ that chronicle his evolution from a bedroom to a main stage singer/songwriter. Produced by guitarist Ben Mullin and open source music pioneer Brad Turcotte (aka ‘Brad Sucks’), on these two albums, the talented band backs him on journey through genres far, wide, big and small while always swirling, coalescing and returning to the dense, well-aged and artisan crafted lyrical center.

Recently, Bruce has completed and released his third full length album "a Perfect Cliché, a 'fake concept album' and probably his weirdest and most beautiful effort to date...
