Pop / R&B / Soul
London-born and Australia-raised Ruel is quite literally the definition of a prodigy. Having picked up the guitar and writing his own music at the age of eight, by twelve he had already garnered the attention of Grammy-award winning producer M-Phazes (Eminem, Logic, Kimbra, Zara Larsson, KYLE). Two years after his discovery, he dropped his first singles, "Golden Years" and "Don't Tell Me," each amassing millions of streams individually.
Influenced by the likes of Stevie Wonder, Dave Brubeck, and Amy Winehouse, his discography contains a musical hodgepodge of pop, R&B, and Neo-soul. His luscious, developed sound and messages juxtapose his youthful appearance, making Ruel an intriguing anomaly that certainly merits your undivided attention. Be sure to check out his debut EP Ready, released on June 15th, 2018.
