Composer Biography

Bill Bruford

By the tender age of 26, Bill Bruford’s musical character had already been forged in the fiery furnace of four of the biggest progressive rock groups of the 1970s; Yes, King Crimson, Genesis, and UK. This early success propelled Bill, by nature a restless innovator who is uncomfortable with the well-worn path, into a fascinating 35-year 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 a strong compositional identity in his current acoustic jazz.

Bill’s taste for the unpredictable in live performance has led him to collaborations with countless of the world’s top musicians in an endless search for the innovative, the unusual, and the unlikely. He has played on over 100 CDs, written a book, and authored numerous articles.  His life’s work is well documented on CD and DVD at Summerfold and Winterfold Records.
