Bruce Thomas

Bruce Thomas is probably best-known as the bass player with Elvis Costello and the Attractions, who he recorded and performed with for the best part of twenty years … and with whom he was inducted into the US Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2003.

As a session musician, he’s worked on both sides of the Atlantic, with artists like Sir Paul McCartney and Suzanne Vega … by way of Billy Bragg, Tasmin Archer, The Pretenders and Madness, amongst many others.

Following that, he collaborated on writing and producing dance and chill-out music under various names, such as BAM!

A new project is his Profile Signature Model Bass … an evolution of the well-known ‘salmon pink’ guitar I used with the Attractions, which has been developed with the Bass Centre in London.

Thomas is also the author of several books about Bruce Lee.
