Bill Bruford Biography

Bill Bruford took up music and drumming at the age of 12. By age 27 his musical character had already been forged in the fiery furnace of four of the biggest progressive rock groups of the day: Yes, King Crimson, Genesis and UK.  Early success propelled Bill, by nature a restless innovator uncomfortable with the well-worn path, into a long and fruitful career as a band-leader and writer. Groups such as Bruford and Earthworks led the way with advanced harmony in electric rock in the 1970s & 80s; samples, electronics and odd-metres in electric jazz in the 90s; and stylistic innovation with strong compositional identity in his current 21st Century acoustic jazz. 

His taste for the unpredictable in live performance has led him to collaborations with countless of the world’s top rock and jazz musicians, in an endless search for the innovative, the unusual and the unlikely. For forty years after his beginnings in progressive rock, Bruford  remained a vital force in all things percussive. His life’s work is well documented on CD and DVD at Summerfold and Winterfold Records, and in his recent book Bill Bruford: The Autobiography.  He retired from public performance in 2009.
