Bruce Davies picked up the bass in 1972 in order to play with his late brother Norman, a drummer of considerable repute. Very early influences include Johnny Cash, Donovan, America, Jimi Hendrix, Led Zepplin, Jack Bruce, and Stanley Clarke. Bruce hasn’t forgotten what his first teacher told him, " In a given piece, don’t play everything you can all the time – leave some space, and listen carefully". Over the years, Bruce has toured with many bands playing virtually all genres. He has credits on a number of vinyl LP’s, CD’s, and other recordings, playing rock, progressive heavy metal, funk, folk, blues, smooth jazz, and pretty much everything in between. He continues to pursue musical education, even attending a workshop retreat with Grammy-Award winning bassist Victor Wooten. Previously, Bruce has been a director of Music By The Sea, a non-profit organization that holds an international music festival and mentor-ship program each July in remote Bamfield on Vancouver Island. Currently, Bruce is a museum curator by day and still enjoys recording & playing bass with his friends.
