SINGER-SONGWRITER BRUCE SUDANO HAS A STORIED HISTORY IN THE WORLD OF MUSIC. HOWEVER, BEGINNING WITH HIS 2004 CD RELEASE RAINY DAY SOUL AND THE SUBSEQUENT LIFE & THE ROMANTIC, HIS WORK BECAME INVOLVED WITH THE RAW EXPRESSION OF INTERNAL CHALLENGES CENTRAL TO ADULT LIVES. IN A VOCABULARY BOTH EVERYDAY AND POETIC HE EXAMINES THE TRANSITIONS - WHETHER PERSONAL, SPIRITUAL OR FAMILIAL - THERE IS ACCEPTANCE AND SURRENDER, UNDERSTANDING THEN TRANSCENDENCE. HIS THIRD ALBUM, WITH ANGELS ON A CAROUSEL, CONTINUED THIS JOURNEY FURTHER INTO THE DEEP. WITH SONGS THAT REFLECTED HIS RECENT EXPERIENCES WITH CRISIS BEYOND CONTROL, EXPLORING FAITH IN THE FACE OF REALITY, HOPE WITHIN THE CONQUERING STORM AND THE COMING TO TERMS WITH THE OVERRIDING WILL OF GOD. IN 2015 HE PROCEEDED WITH THE BURBANK SESSIONS WHERE BRUCE EXPLAINS "I SET OUT TO PUT THE BAND TOGETHER WITH THE HELP OF MY PRODUCER AND GUITARIST RANDY MITCHELL. WE STARTED REHEARSING AND PLAYING SHOWS AROUND LA TO PROMOTE THE ALBUM. OVER THE COURSE OF THE YEAR I CONTINUED WRITING AND STARTED INCORPORATING THE NEW MATERIAL INTO THE SET, WHICH LED TO THE RECORDING AT OUR REHEARSAL STUDIO IN BURBANK. WE BASICALLY PUT UP A FEW BAFFLES FOR SOUND SEPARATION, SET UP SOME MICS AND PLAYED THE SONGS AS IF WE WERE DOING A SET IN A CLUB. IF WE HAD AN AUDIENCE I WOULD HAVE CALLED IT A LIVE RECORD.

BRUCE'S LATEST WORK 21ST CENTURY WORLD, IS AN ALBUM THATS LEAD SINGLE (IT AIN'T COOL) GETS DELIBERATELY POLITICAL. BRUCE EXPLAINS "IT'S AN OBSERVATION ON THE CULTURE AT LARGE: SELF SERVING POLITICIANS, THE LACK OF INTEGRITY, GREED DESTROYING CAPITALISM, WHERE MONEY IS THE JUSTIFICATION FOR EVERYTHING. MY HOPE AS A SONGWRITER AND ARTIST IS TO PROVOKE THOUGHT AND CREATE DIALOGUE REGARDING ISSUES THAT CONCERN US ALL." THE 10 TRACKS WERE RECORDED IN NEW YORK CITY IN FALL 2016, PRODUCED BY MIKE MONTALI, LEAD SINGER OF LOCAL ROOTS-ROCK OUTFIT HOLLIS BROWN. IT WILL BE AVAILABLE ON MAY 5, AND CAN BE PRE-ORDERED NOW.
