Tell us about your band/career, including your history, where you are from and how you started?
In the musical justice system Bruce Lecky Way is represented by two separate yet equally important parts. The talent and good looks (Kehmak), that bring in the fans, ladies and fan ladies, and the other guy (Chet Williamz)… these are their stories. DUN DUN.
How did you come up with your band name?
Years ago, Kehmak and Chet had a wild group sex experience in Toronto at an apartment building on Dan Leckie Way. We both told the participants of the orgy that our names were both in fact Bruce. We lied. We even had a song that basically copied the tune of “Mickey You’re So Fine”. It went a little something like “My name is Bruce CLAP CLAP, CLAP CLAP, My name is Bruce CLAP CLAP, CLAP CLAP. That night/morning, a legend was born. Years later when trying to think of a name for our group, Bruce Lecky Way was the obvious choice.
Do you have any recorded music available for fans?
Yes of course. Our newest song is mixed by Juno award winning/Grammy nominated musical lord Dan Brodbeck and features viral Youtuber John Nonny (from The Pun Guys). You can find Bruce’s hits on all streaming platforms (Spotify, Apple Music, Deezer etc) and you can find our amazingly hilarious skits all over YouTube and Facebook. We have a new bang bang coming out in April titled “Makes Me Strong”.
How would you describe your music?
Bruce is what the world has been waiting for, it just didn’t know it yet. We make music that makes you happy, and music that makes you think about being happy. Bruce’s style is versatile. We take what we loved as kids and tried to recreate that feeling with our own twist. With influences like Prince, Outkast, Michael Jackson, Cee Lo Green, Eminem, Earth Wind & Fire, Nelly, Joe Cocker, and Tom Waits, Bruce is truly a mixed bag. When the world famous DJ Seizure first heard Bruce’s song “Down The Middle” he was quoted by saying “Yooooooooooooooooooooooooooo”
What makes your band/music stand out from the others?
With looks that could kill, undeniable killer voices, and the comedy chops that kill the audience every time, it was either this or become hitmen. Chet doesn’t believe in violence, so we went the music route. Bruce doesn’t care about what people think of him or if he stands out or not. He just “is”. Bruce is here to spread the love in all directions. He’s gotta big ol’ bag of love and not afraid to share it. You get some love! He going to get a bitta love! Hey lady…you want this love? Yeeaaah she’s getting the love too. This questions getting love. LOVE, LOVE, LOVE, Love Bruce.
What do you like to do outside of music that contributes to the music?
10,000 push ups a day, read one book an hour, shower, and work on our jokes that come effortlessly, so really we don’t work on them at all. Not only are we world class musicians, in our spare time we are also professional athletes, industry leading business experts, Canada’s top models (unofficially) and comedians at the top of our game. We shoot hilarious skits that captivate 10’s of 10’s of people all across the Globe.
Name your two biggest musical influences and why?
Can you name yourself? No. Then probably Kevin Ferderline and Lou Bega. RIP to both of these legends. Just two well endowed soldiers ahead of their time. Remind you of anyone? Yeah, BRUCE! One day we plan to all meet at those pearly gates up in heaven for the ultimate cypher. Lou on vocals, Chet on drums, while me (Kehmak) and Kevin just crush beers and watch the ladies flock. Can’t wait.
Who writes your songs? What are the main themes or topics for most of your songs?
Bruce does everything in house from the lyrics, to vocals, to production. Most of our songs are about how cool we are. Other topics range from how dope we are, to how lit we can get.
What has been your biggest challenge as a band/artist? Have you been able to overcome that challenge? If so, how?
Our biggest challenge has been being overly talented. Most stations, playlists, and blog publications won’t accept interviews or songs because they say we are just too good and it’s going to make all the other bands and artists feel self conscious. We’ve also faced a lot of discrimination for our incredible good looks. It’s something that we have come to accept and just have to deal with on a day-to-day basis. It’s not easy but we get by.
What current projects are you working on at the moment?
We are currently working on an EP and a few music videos including the Toy Story Rap, following our success of The Lion King Rap which is approaching 75k views across our social media platforms. We have a lot of content in the vault and will be releasing these goodies incrementally throughout 2021. Kehmak & Chet Williamz share all musical responsibilities including writing, producing, recording, directing, acting, and mixing.

We know the struggle so the price is on point for your broke ass. Bruce out!
