"I AM THERE FOR YOU" is "Loose Bruce" Kerr's original song, a jazz-scat-big band sound.
Bruce records his songs one instrument & vocal at a time, layering to get the final song. In this one, he sings, plays bass & piano "for real," then uses his synthesizer to compose & play each trombone, trumpet, saxophone, & set of drums, one drum or cymbal per track, then mixes it all together.
"Loose Bruce" Kerr spent 20 years as a performer of music, comedy, and parodies. His parodies have been played on national TV (CNN News), radio (Dr. Demento, over 100 plays; Jim Bohannon Program, Larry King). He opened for "Weird Al" Yankovic. Eventually, Bruce resumed his earlier law practice which he had suspended and after a career at Oracle and formerly Assistant General Counsel of Sun Microsystems is semi-retired in northern California taking atty contract work from time to time.
In the mid-late 60's, Bruce was a vocalist & bass player in rock band "The 5 Bucks" which became the "Byzantine Empire" during college at the University of Michigan. Several 45's were released, the last several on Bell Records. Before that, in high school, Bruce was in a folk group in Waukesha, Wisconsin (home of Les Paul), "The Coachmen."
In the late 70's, Bruce was a guitarist, vocalist, and songwriter in the New England area rock band, "Spud City" (with Waukesha, WI's fellow townie, Steve Hoeft).
Many of Bruce's parody videos from 2006-on are viewable on youtube, as well as on this podcast site.
