Born and raised in Williamsburg Virginia, he was the son of Robert Stanley Hornsby who was a former musician himself. After graduating from a local high school, he went on to study music at the University of Richmond and the prestigious Berklee College of Music. He began singing at local clubs and hotel bars in his hometown of Williamsburg after his graduation.
Bruce was part of "Bobby Hi-Test and the Octane Kids" a band formed by Bruce’s older brother Bobby. It was a small band and played at fraternity parties. In 1984, Bruce went on to form the band "Bruce Hornsby and the Range". The band consisting of five musicians, started with the biggest hit song Hornsby has to date. The song titled "The Way It is" went along a socially conscious theme and talked of the prevalent institutional racism and the American Civil Rights movement.
Their debut album has three top twenty hits. Hornsby piano solos are very notable in the album, especially in the tracks ‘The Road Not Taken’ and ‘The Show Goes On’. In 1987 Bruce Hornsby and the Range got their first Grammy awards for the best new Artist.
Their second album, Scenes From The Southside, did not fare as well as the first album. Yet it went on to sell a million copies. Hornsby also ventured into song writing and wrote a song along with his brother for Huey Lewis, a close friend and musician. The song ‘Jacob’s Ladder’ went on to be a number one hit for Lewis.
Hornsby then collaborated with the band "Grateful Dead" and performed at many concerts with them. He played the keyboard and sometimes the accordion as well for the band. During his spell with the band, he formed a close musical connection with guitarist Jerry Garcia. Garcia and the Grateful Dead influenced Hornsby’s music with their unorthodox mixing of folk music and blues, with psychedelic rock. Hornsby stayed with the band until its formal dissolution with the death of Jerry Garcia.
Hornsby then started to focus on his solo career. He released his solo album by the name of Harbor Lights in 1993. The album did not feature his backup band, the Range. The album went gold and Hornsby received his third Grammy for Best Pop Instrumental in 1993. He released another album ‘Hot House’ in 1995 and another solo album 3 years later.
In 2000 another band was beginning to take shape; Hornsby and the Noise Makers. It consisted of Hornsby and a mixed line-up of musicians. Their first album was titled ‘Here Come the Noise Makers’. This album was a very experimental album with digitally mixed and synthesized sound and very little of Hornsby on piano.
In later albums he did return to his conventional music play, however his desire to explore the different possibilities offered by the piano was still prevalent. His music continues to reflect his own interests, with various backing bands to suit the style, rather than mainstream music. In 2007 Hornsby teamed up with Ricky Skaggs to bring bluegrass back into his music.
His music continues to be an amalgamation of different music backings with his style of music very prominent. He has also written songs for Broadway musicals; one which was a colorful tune about real-estate tycoon Donald Trump named "The Don of Dons".
He says about his music "I was never a very good Top 40 band guy because I never liked to play the same thing every time. Too often songwriters approach their songs like museum pieces. I don't subscribe to that. I think of my songs as living beings that evolve and change and grow through the years."
His concerts offer unexpected, spontaneous musical melodies, blending different genres, crafted by the experienced instrumentalist himself. Do not miss the chance to get your Bruce Hornsby tickets and enjoy the experience.
