Throughout the 80's and 90's worked mostly in television as musical director scoring and composing.
From 2000 on Bruce did more live work with his own jazz trio and the blues band 'Trouble and Strife.'
After years of working behind the scenes as producer/composer/arranger/musical director/sideman/band leader Bruce is moving back to where he began - centre stage. This year he is releasing a series of three different collections of newly written original music in three different genres. The first, 'Bruce Ley Collection One 'The Peacock, the Deer, and the Moon' is a gathering of soul, rock and blues songs. Co-produced with his wife Candice Bist, who is also the lyricist, the newly released album is receiving excellent reviews out of the gate.
