Malcom Bruce


Solo / Sons of Cream / West, Bruce Jr. and Laing

“I've used everything in the Hartke arsenal, and have found a consistency, flexibility and beauty of tone that is second to none.”

Malcolm Bruce is a composer and multi instrumentalist, playing guitar, bass, piano and voice. He has written songs, music for the theatre, media, for children, and also orchestral concert music. Malcolm has worked with a multitude of musicians over the years.

Malcolm's recent live work has included touring with Leslie West and Corky Laing (Mountain) as part of West, Bruce Jr. and Laing, a 60-date tour in support of Joe Satriani across Europe, the U.S. and Canada, as part of Ned Evett's Triple Double and a special Jimi Hendrix Birthday tribute at BB Kings Blues Club in NYC with Eric Schenkman (Spin Doctors) and Corky Laing.
