Album Notes
Balance is Bruce's sixth album, and it's a beauty. Bruce has once again collaborated with the cream of Melbourne's acoustic musicians to produce a musical treat. Guests include Ernie Gruner, Phil Carrol, Peter Vadiveloo, Gavan MaCarthy, Brian Strating, Lyndal Chambers, Tracey Roberts, Wendy Ealey, Moira Tyers, Neil Robertson, Graeme Fletcher, Jane, Lucy and Hugh Belfrage.

In addition there are two very special guests: is the Shaking the Tree choir, led by Bronwyn Calcutt join Bruce in three songs; and Tasmanian Elder Ronnie Summers, a proud descendent of Fanny Cochrane Smith, sings duet with Bruce in a spine tingling version of The Man and The Woman and The Edison Phonograph.

The album contains a mix of humour, witty observation, romance, story telling, songs of the environment and big issues that affect us all, including reconciliation, the environment, compassion and respect for heritage.

I love the harmonies, the sentiments expressed, the fabulously clever lyrics and humour, the humanity imbedded in so many songs. Come to think of it I love them all. (Phil Melgaard, Performer)

It's absolutely fantastic - a brilliant album. (David Hosking, Radio 3MDR)

A beautiful sound and songs. The song with Ronnie makes me cry. (Christina Mimmochi, Producer, 2010 Australian National Folk Fellow)

Bruce Watson writes excellent songs, on the side of the angels. He puts out CDs like Christmas cake, rich and nutritious, fruity in places, a bit nutty too, some bits sweet, some dark, attractive to everyone including children ... Bruce is a non-stop song-writer for all people, and all life, and brings them to life as great music on this CD. (Trad&Now)
