Guest Biography


Originally from a small farming village in Southwest, Ohio, Bruns’ passion for drumming took him from delivering newspapers for music lesson money, to Miami University on a music scholarship, to USC’s Jazz Studies program. 

Today, Bruns travels the globe in search of new rhythms and draws on these musical experiences  over the  past 16 years as the founder and director of the World Music Program at Campbell Hall (a private k-12 school in Southern California).  

He’s produced nine World-Jazz albums, including two that charted in the top-10. He holds a Bachelors of Music degree in Classical Percussion (Miami U.), a Master’s of Music degree in Jazz Studies (USC) and a Master’s Certificate in  Music Production (Berklee). Notable projects include Beck’s Sound & Vision, Game of Thrones, Louis Price (Temptations), and Liane Carroll (2x BBC jazz Award recipient).
