b. USA. Gospel singer Bruce Hibbard’s musical apprenticeship began in local church choirs and led to spells playing in contemporary Christian rock bands such as Amplified Version and Sonlight. He also spent time as a church choir director before electing to concentrate on pursuing a solo career. His thoughtful, musically polished material was greeted with little enthusiasm by secular record companies, until Paul Clark signed him to Seed Records in the late 70s. However, A Light Within proved to be a disappointing selection of uninspired tribute songs without the passion or artistry to bring Hibbard’s concepts alive.
