Album Notes
Bruce Tetley is the Michael Moore of the music industry. After nearly thirty years of dealing with slimey agents,
dishonest club owners and promoters, and record company weasels, he has decided to record, produce, and sell
his product himself.
Born and raised in a small town in upstate New York, Bruce was influenced by many styles of music. His Dad and he sat on their porch and listened to old time country music in the fifties.(Roy Acuff, Flatt and Scruggs, Doc Watson,etc.)
Later the Everly Brothers and Buddy Holly were a huge influence. Then came the Beatles and everything changed.
Bruce Tetley started out playing drums but was rapidly dis-couraged by his family.(too much noise) It was just as well.(too much gear to haul)
As a teen he was a singer in several "garage bands" but didn't take up the guitar seriously until the age of 19.
At that time Buffalo Springfield, the Byrds, and CSNY were major influences. Upon hearing Eric Clapton's "Layla" album and the Allman Bros. "Live at the Fillmore" it was time to buy a Gibson Les Paul and later a Fender Strat.
Recently, Bruce has been getting back into acoustic music and "Blue Eyed Sole" is the result.
For years the blues and roots rock were the music he concentrated on and recorded two albums in that vein. One was "House of Cards" with a band called "Blueprints" with George Deveny, currently with the "Tom Healey Band", and Dave Liddy from "Stringbee". That album received rave reviews and several award nominations. Both Dave and George contributed to "Blue Eyed Sole". The second album was a solo effort called "Sunrise".
Bruce has lived in northeast Florida for the last few years but due to the recent hurricane activity has decided to move to Maui. The first cut on the CD is "Dodgin' a Hurricane" and pretty much sums up the stress and frustration most Floridians have been feeling. It's a tongue in cheek ditty design to bring a smile and take some of the pressure off. The last cut, "Maui Calls",
looks to his future plans and is a tribute to what Hawaiians refer to as the "aloha spirit". Please give a listen to some or all of the samples here and buy many copies and ask your friends to do the same. Mahalo. ALOHA!
UPDATE! "Dodgin' a Hurricane" has won first prize in the "Best New Florida Song" contest sponsored by the Will McLean Foundation and Folk Festival on March 12, 2005.
Congratulations Bruce!!
UPDATE! Unfortuately, things didn't work out on Maui and Bruce is temporarily in San Francisco visiting his sister Kate. He will return to upstate N.Y. in Sept. '05. He looks forward to entertaining his fans and friends at home.

UPDATE! Bruce now lives on the gulf coast of Florida (Yikes) and has a brand new song on CDBaby. Check it out at;

This CD takes you away! very islandy and listenable(are those words)? Great covers of Never Ending Song of Love & Things We Said Today coupled w/cool originals make it a disc you can leave in the player for weeks.
Tetly sounds as good as ever and I've had the pleasure of listening to him for 25+yrs.
Grab a Mai Tai and hit play...

Bruce never ceases to amaze us!
Bruce never ceases to amaze his loyal followers. His music has touched our souls for thirty five years. His Beatle renditions are classic. Keep up the good work Bubba!

Barb Caster

I love it!! Its the kind of music I could listen to forever.....
This is the kind of music where you can imagine just sitting on the beach somewhere and drinking a rum and coke with friends and just playing this CD over and over again. It puts you in a very relaxed state of mind. It is hard to pick my favorite song without hearing them fully. I love them all. If you like to actually hear the words of a song, you will love this CD. It is real sing-along sound.

Great Performance!
I really enjoyed your unforgettable performance at the club last weekend.

Give it a listen ... more than once
A real pleasure to hear good music. Great harmonies great guitar licks. The more I listen to it the more I like it.
Very poetic, with a not so hidden political agenda.
Maybe a little too sad. I’m hoping he let his soul run free and find someone to sail & smile with in the islands soon. I’m looking forward to his next efforts. I’m sure it too will be very good music.
