Bruce Turgon

Bassist/Songwriter/Producer

Longtime Foreigner bassist, solo recording artist, songwriter, and producer, Bruce Turgon’s career started with the band Black Sheep, together with Lou Gramm on lead vocals. When Gramm was called to join the multi-million selling band Foreigner, Bruce wrote, recorded and toured with bands like Billy Thorpe, Prism and Warrior. In 1991 he and Gramm formed – together with Vivian Campbell (Dio, Whitesnake, Def Leppard) and drummer Kevin Valentine – the critically acclaimed band Shadow King, with Bruce co-writing nine of the ten tracks on the album, as well as handling multiple instrument, arrangement and programming duties. In 1992, when Lou Gramm rejoined Foreigner, Bruce covered the bass position vacated by the departing Rick Wills. Foreigner released Mr. Moonlight in 1995, with several songs co-written by Bruce, including the single Until The End Of Time and with them he toured steadily from 1992 to 2002. Bruce’s first solo album on Frontiers Records is entitled Outside Looking In, featuring Denny Carmassi on drums (Heart / Whitesnake / Foreigner / Montrose), Rocket Ritchotte on lead guitar (David Lee Roth / Stan Bush / Cher / Rick Springfield), Scott McKinstry on lead guitar (Lou Gramm Band), Ronnie Montrose on lead guitar, Ricky Philips, Tom Gimbel and of course Lou Gramm on backing vocals.
