Bruce is a Jazz saxophonist playing tenor, alto and soprano saxophone, doubling on flute and clarinet. Based in Hong Kong since Summer 2014, Bruce moved to Hong Kong to expand his teaching and playing opportunities, after spending a couple of great years in Seoul, South Korea.

Bruce splits his time in Hong Kong between performing with various bands across all sorts of genres, recording online sessions for several artists based abroad, and teaching woodwind at the prestigious Kellett International school in Hong Kong.

Bruce graduated from Salford University in 1995 where he studied saxophone with   Andy Scott   and   Gerard McChrystal achieving a First class honours degree in Band Musicianship, and receiving the "Goff Richards"  award for best jazz performer. Since leaving college Bruce has performed professionally in many commercial situations from musicals and cabaret through to session work with various bands and artists.
