Brulen started breaking the rules long ago. And he’s still breaking the rules! Among those are restarting his music career at over sixty, moving ahead regardless of what record labels may say, and taking shelved tracks and freshening them up, then releasing them. In 1989, old friend Hot Tuna drummer Sammy Piazza convinced his friend ‘Bru’ to record material he had been holding onto for several years. Brulen, created his pseudonym name by joining ‘Bru’ (Bruce) & ‘Len’ (Lennon) (and pseudonym of Bruce Bierman). In 1990, he enlisted a band of veteran professionals, hired five world-class recording studios and began a recording project where he would personally expend over $200,000, all while he was traveling between the USA, Europe and Hong Kong for his computer business, while simultaneously moonlighting as a counter-surveillance anti-spy (as “The Wall Street Journal” called him). Producing and performing himself, and recruiting musicians like Ross Valory of Journey, Bill Gibson of Huey Lewis and The News, Karl Sevareid of The Robert Cray Band, Steve Kimock of SKB, and engineers Mark Needham (known for his work with Chris Isaak) and Moira Marquis (known for her work with James Taylor), Brulen engaged state-of-the-art recording facilities including George Lucas’ Lucasfilm Skywalker Sound at the Lucas Ranch in Marin County, Fantasy Studios of Berkley, California, Hyde Street Studios, Studio D Recording and Prairie Sun Recording, all in the San Francisco Bay Area, and mastered it at the finest… Bernie Grundman Mastering. The result was a finished album, never released, having been subsequently rejected by every major record label. This is probably one of the longest drawn out projects ever to be accomplished, taking more than seventeen years from start to finish, though the actual recording time was almost two years. Brulen shelved the entire project until now, adding up to a total of 40 more tracks, most of which are performed, engineered, produced, and mastered by Brulen in entirety, using songs created with ‘a little help from a friend’.  There are tracks which include some very special guest artists! Brulen has been so busy with his other careers that he has never had the time to concentrate on this one. Read all about Brulen’s multiple careers in the Bio. Now that Brulen has dedicated his life to music, he will release this and other very special projects in the future. A recent CD entitled ‘Message’ has never been released at the request of the John Lennon Estate. Thus, Brulen has abandoned pursuing that material and is directed on a new musical path, beginning with ‘Rules.’ Though the finishing touches are still in progress, the final result can later be heard here. MP3 samples will soon be available, but the final release is slated for next year… certainly worth the wait after all this time! Everyone breaks rules, and there are always rules that certainly should be changed. Who says you can’t start over at sixty? Many thanks for taking the time to visit and please comeback real soon!
