For more than 15 years, Ruvane has been touring through venues around the United States with his unique brand of acoustic folk-rock. He has performed for Hillary Clinton and has shared the stage with such acts as Tim Mahoney, Mango Jam, Soul Farm, Rob Bonaccorsi (Freddy Jones Band), and Rick Recht. Ruvane’s stage show combines elements of storytelling, live-looping-creating landscapes of sound, and all out rocking!
He has made several radio and television appearances, and his music is featured on the soundtrack to the movie, “Vengeance Zombies 2000,” produced by Bo Hakala. Ruvane’s song “Good Morning” was featured in an ad for restaurant chain, Noodles and Company, and he has had his songs featured in citywide compilations from Chicago to Columbus, OH.
Released in 2012, Ruvane’s 7th album, “Elevate” features performances by Jimi “Jazz” Prescott (G. Love and Special Sauce), Brian Fechino (Pat McGee Band, Rick Recht), and Arkadiy Gipps (Madonna) among others.
Ruvane’s singing and songwriting skills, along with his witty and entertaining stage presence, have drawn comparisons to such acts as U2, Howie Day, Jack Johnson, John Mayer, Dave Matthews Band, and Peter Himmelman. Of his music, he says, “It’s folk with a rock edge.”
