Stephen Bruce has spent his life on stage. As a young child, he started performing with family in church and at revivals. His young adult life brought on gigs with local bands and musicians. Music is more than just a part of his life. It influences every aspect, especially his struggle with depression.
With his eyes on God and his hands on a guitar, he pours out his feelings of anguish, anxiety, and dark thoughts. In Breaking Through, Stephen shares his journey through song. Along with his struggles, the music has an underlying note of faith, both having a strong presence in his life.
Off the stage, Stephen enjoys spending time with his wife, walking his dog along the beaches of Lake Michigan, and smoking a fine cigar. The depression may never end completely, but his biggest battle now is being on stage sharing his heart . . . with melodic, rhythmic poetry.
