Earthbound - Original Australian Music

Bruce is the creative energy behind the Earthbound originals. He has been writing songs since he was 15. He is most comfortable writing in the blues/folk medium but has also written instrumental music and some more rock orientated originals.

Bruce writes from life experiences and incorporates a spiritual element in his music. Bruce’s ability to capture a moment then paint it in a song is truly unique. His ability to do this in a way that connects to others is what makes Earthbound originals so special.

At the end of 2005, Earthbound put together a short EP called TRY THIS ON (8 songs) as a gift to family and friends.

Their latest CD 'Earthbound' is a reflection of significant events that have occurred over the past 20 years. It is a musically eclectic mix ranging from country twangs to heartfelt ballads and folk music. Bruce and Jen were intent on keeping the sound “as close to a live performance as possible” and so have opted for acoustic instruments throughout.

Bruce’s years of guitar playing shines through in both his finger picking style and his solos whilst maintaining a focus on meaningful lyrics and melodic vocal lines.

Jenni’s vocals complement Bruce’s so well and it is obvious that these two musicians have been playing together for a long time. Jen also lends her usual percussion, stomp and harmonica to the album.

They are lucky to have a talented artist Miranda Earle (www.mirandaearle.com) as a friend so when you buy the album you also buy some beautiful art to look at whilst you listen.

My Little Sister
I wanted to portray the cyclic nature of domestic violence both from perspective of a child and as an adult. Domestic violence is not OK in any culture.
The River
Feeling like lost touch with what is important and the river in life not being clean at that time. Important to take the kids to that clean river.
Catherine Hill Bay (Catho)
The song was written on the veranda of the little coal mining shack we used to live in that overlooked the beach at Catho. It was winter and raining, sea eagle overhead, bush in the background. Save Catho! www.catherinehillbay.org.au

Truth Is
A song bout unconditional love
If These Walls Could Talk
I always feel kind of sad seeing just frame standing where a house used to be. NSW government decided build units without consultation in our old suburb. As dpt of housing is their own approval body, they didn’t need to consult. This happened all around NSW.
