The former frontman of The Correspondents, one of Britain’s most in-demand festival acts for a decade, went solo in spectacular style last year, unveiling a new sound which draws on decades of UK dance music, from techno and jungle to garage and house. Mr Bruce will showcase his exciting new sound throughout the UK on a 12-date tour of some of the very best independent venues during March and April 2022.
On his debut release Race To Nowhere, Mr Bruce will let loose as never before. Lyrically candid yet flamboyant in delivery, as honest as it is inventive and as theatrical as we’ve come to expect from the bendy-bodied performer. A five track mini-album planned for release later this year, it will tackle issues from climate crisis and the death of Mr Bruce’s twin brother aged 20, to the breakdown of his marriage in 2019, and the sudden death in autumn 2020 of Tim Cole, his partner in The Correspondents for 13 action-packed years. The release will come with 4 music videos (many of which have been animated by Mr Bruce) that have been picked up by multiple film festivals and are already scooping up awards. The wheels are definitely in motion for this multifaceted artist.
Mr Bruce has something to say, stand up and act upon, and is able to express his love for dance music and his understanding of grief and loss with a deftness that he has acquired from more than a decade of writing hard-hitting pop songs designed for the dance floor.
He will perform at the Hyde Park Book Club in Leeds on 30th March 2022.
