 After being a part of the original start up band 'Soma' .... playing congas and singing back-up harmonies with Frank Mackay and playing a few live gigs... Bruce began realizing that he wanted to play guitar and perform and record his own original songs which he had been writing for the past couple of years at that time ... After leaving "Soma" Bruce flew back to 'Toronto and put together his '6th' band with 'Scott Cushnie' / 'Professor Piano' .... the band was called 'Rockin' Chair' ... This band played the 'Toronto' club  circuit for part of 1969.... After that short lived band Bruce began assembling his '7th' band "Everyday People" and through his song writing & leadership  secured  a recording contract with Dr. Music Productions / Terry Brown & Doug Riley who were owners of "Toronto Sound Studios" this resulted in the band signing with "GRT Records Canada" and later "Paramount Records USA". The band released their album in 1970 in Canada and 1971 in the USA and toured constantly across Canada and into the USA throughout the 4 years that the band existed.  Bruce sang on the Kenny Rogers TV show called "Rollin On The River" with "Everyday People".
