In the spring of 2002, after the third album, "Variations on a Dream", which was probably the album that gave TPT the boost they needed, reaching out to yet more people all over the world, Bruce decided to form a band to take his music to the fans. The band consisted of his close musical friends - former university band mate Jon Sykes on bass, Wayne Higgins on guitars, Matt O'Leary on keyboards and Keith Harrison on drums. Matt has since left but Steve Kitch (who co-produced and mixed the fourth album "10 Stories Down") has since joined to play keyboards. Wayne Higgins left the band in March 2008, but the group continues as a four piece live act.
The first five albums were released on Cyclops records. In late 2007, the band were signed to Kscope.
