Bruce Arbuckle

Armed with a passion that burns bright, Bruce’s love of all things Bass definitely shines through in his playing! A multi-stylist in Rock, Pop, Jazz, Blues, R&B and Funk, he brings a thoughtful, mature approach to every musical situation. Early on studies of piano, music theory, trumpet, guitar, bass and ultimately a Diploma in Jazz Performance laid the foundation for a lifelong career in music.

Bruce is available to play with dsc_1292-editedIndividual Artists and Bands for Private, Corporate and Showcase events, Theatre Musicals, Tribute Acts and Recording Projects in the Greater Toronto area. His playing demonstrates a unique versatility that has matured from years of live performance and recording experience.

Influences are many but not limited to; John Paul Jones, Pino Palladino, Marcus Miller, Will Lee and Paul McCartney. Always driving to improve his Bass and musical knowledge, it is vitally important to Bruce to push the envelope and raise the bar with his playing each and every day.

“My philosophy is simple; listen hard, keep an open mind and put the time in!”
