James Bruce Lyttle.  Born at St. Joseph's Hospital in North Bay, Ontario (Canada) September 20, 1952.  Grew up there and in Toronto, then attended high school while living in the village of Rodney (60 kilometres West of London, Ontario).  Know as Bruce Lyttle until the mid-1980s; Jim Lyttle was my Dad's name.

Travelled back and forth across Canada in showbands with Bill Caldwell's Canadian Talent Productions out of London: playing guitar and occasionally keyboards, singing, and arranging the music and vocal harmonies.  Created 20-minute medley of songs from The Beatles, another from The Beach Boys, and one featuring The Four Seasons.  Later added a medley of TV theme songs.

Left full-time performing in 1980 to take a job with Electrohome Electronics (Kitchener, Ontario) working on the Canadian government's Telidon Project under Patrick R. Anthony.  While working on that, and later when returning to school to complete three Canadian university degrees, produced musical arrangements for The Johnnie Johnston Show and designed the lighting for many plays in Toronto theatres.
