About

“I’m tackling the future by wrestling with the past, all the while living in the present tense.” - Bruce Sudano

American singer-songwriter Bruce Sudano has a storied history in the world of music. Born and raised in Brooklyn, NY, his unique journey includes an early songwriting mentorship from Tommy James (the pair co-wrote the 1969 hit “Ball of Fire” for James’ band The Shondells), co-founding two groups in the ‘70’s, Alive 'N Kickin' and Brooklyn Dreams, who both scored Billboard charting songs (“Tighter, Tighter” and “Heaven Knows” respectively), and seeing his work recorded by iconic artists like Dolly Parton, Reba McEntire (both with “Starting Over Again”) and Michael & Jermaine Jackson (“Tell Me I’m Not Dreaming”). But his most fruitful association dates from 1977 when Bruce began working with Donna Summer, co-writing her smash hit “Bad Girls”, and developing what became a 3+ decade musical partnership and marriage, until her passing from cancer in 2012.

This tragedy started Bruce on a new journey, writing, recording and touring for himself, releasing 6 albums and numerous singles throughout the past decade. Bruce’s musical capabilities blend philosophical, spiritual, love, and social consciousness ideas, expressing internal challenges from everyday life and songs dispatched from the heart, with exquisite story telling. His life and his stories continue in his upcoming album Talkin’ Ugly Truth, Tellin’ Pretty Lies. An album that dives into every stage of life, from the exhilaration of youth through the maze of love, loss, and lessons learned, ending with what it all means and where the journey leads from there.

From listening at home to performing on the road, Bruce takes each audience on a journey of storytelling through song. He has performed alongside an eclectic group of musicians from the wildly successful duo Johnnyswim, to the legendary British band The Zombies, as well as rockers Hollis Brown, Zombies’ lead singer Colin Blunstone, and fellow hit songwriters Dan Navarro and Chas Sandford.
