Center of It All

I'm a seventies artist trapped in the twenty-teens, rocking and finger picking and harmonizing like the musical spawn of Elvis Costello and Fleetwood Mac, more or less.

Album Notes
Writing and recording songs can give you a rich fantasy life. Like when you watch an episode of "The Americans" (great show) and out pops the song "Rough Days." Or when you imagine being so down and out that you wish someone would airlift you away and voila, "Angels Are Hiding." Think you're tired? Try flapping your wings 1500 times a minute like the characters in "Hummingbird." How about a pep talk from a quasi-Rastafarian? That's "Hey O Way O." An early morning stroll down Abbey Road? "Foggy Morning London Town." A helicopter getaway? "When Charlie Went AWOL." There's a song just called "Who?" What's THAT all about? Or who?

It's not all crazy talk. There's some of the usual sensitive guy "what's it all about" stuff too, like "In the Name of Love," "No Second Chances," and even "Saving the World." "Center Of It All" was inspired by memories of my Mom who passed away just recently - she really was the center of it all for me and my family.

There's a lot of rock, a ton of harmonies, a bit of folk and country, and just a dash of jazz. An album 6 years in the making with twelve very different and dare I say rather good songs (yes, I dare say). And I must ALSO say that if you like cool guitar solos, my producer, friend, and Local Guitar God Roger Lavallee has really outdone himself on this project. Smoking.

It's a good album. You'll like it. Trust me. Why would I lie?

Great album
This is a a super CD, and my favorite of Bruce's. The songs are varied yet cohesive. I like the harder rock edge to Rough Days and When Charlie Went AWOL and easier but rocking sound of Hey O Way O. Bruce has a great voice, and it nicely is highlighted on some of the slower/softer pieces. Thanks, Bruce, for continuing to create such enjoyable music!
