Jonny Bruce is an extraordinary and adventurous trumpet player with a truly unique identity. He has emerged onto the UK jazz scene, in recent years, through playing with the Dave Stapleton Quintet - DSQ, with who he contributes a vital role in the bands sound. He performs regularly throughout UK and Europe and has been critically acclaimed from both the Guardian and the Independent on Sunday, as well as other jazz publications, for his playing, espeically his performance on DSQ’s second album ‘The House Always Wins (2007)’.

Since graduating from the Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama in 2006, Bruce has been one of the most in demand trumpet players in a jazz context or as session player (including TV, radio and pop recordings) on the UK scene.

In 2006 Bruce formed his own sextet with which he writes and arranges for, drawing on funk, jazz and latin influences. He is currently working on his debut album due for release in 2009.

Through his involvement with DSQ and other UK groups, Bruce has earned the reputation as one of the most exciting young trumpet players to emerge onto the UK scene in recent years.
