After many years as a sideman, on stage and in recording studios with headliners like Jeannie C. Riley, Bill Monroe, Phil Harris, Vassar Clements, Norman Blake and many others, Bruce has finally stepped out front with his inaugural solo offering, Zeno Dreamed, on Spring Fed Records. The eleven tracks of original and "recomposed" traditional songs and tunes, including two performances from live radio broadcast, combine with a colorful booklet of stories and song notes to give Zeno Dreamed the narrative of a concept album. The concept? Music in the South, uniquely appealing music, is born of a peculiar mix of cultures and history. In addition to his history of recording and performing with others, Bruce is a Grammy winning writer, record producer and theatrical music director.
