Ruvane’s first original studio album since 2012’s, “Elevate”, “19” takes you on a sonic journey, weaving through multiple styles, and tied together through the common thread of travel and love.

Ruvane has added Clifton Guitarworks guitars to his touring rotation. Unique, eminently playable, and locally owned and built in Ohio, Ruvane’s custom hybrid Flathead (the first of its kind in the Clifton collection) is a sophisticated and powerful addition to his touring collection. Check it out at a show near you.
Although hybrid guitars have been part of Ruvane’s arsenal for years, it wasn’t until he discovered the Godin LGX-SA that he truly was able to unlock the full potential of the hybrid guitar. Featuring acoustic, electric, and midi capabilities, the LGX-SA will become a strong force in Ruvane’s live-looping show.
Ruvane has been using Robert Keeley’s pedals for years. The high quality components and unique tonal characteristics make their pedals extremely desirable in the studio and on stage. Check out the Bubble Tron and Compressor Plus on tour with Ruvane. You’ll hear a host of other Keeley pedals on his studio recordings as well.
Ruvane has been playing J & D acoustic and electric Guitars by CNZ audio since the summer of 2017 in the studio and on tour. Featuring high quality, low cost instruments, CNZ Audio believes in providing an affordable musical experience for their users. Ruvane uses their strat and tele style guitars as well as their solid top cutaway acoustic guitars.
Ruvane has joined the GHS family, formally solidifying his relationship with the Michigan based string company. Ruvane uses IB40M INFINITY BRONZE and CB-GBL COATED BOOMERS on his acoustic and electric guitars, and the GHS sound can be heard at his upcoming tour dates and album releases. ghsstrings.com
“Spark”, is a song I wrote during my summer tour of 2017 in response to the atrocious headlines I read while traveling from city to city. In a time where our country is treating our fellow citizens with vast disrespect, it was my goal to bring a little love and light into the world. My friends and I got together to record a song of unity, hope, and light, through the lens of Chanukah, which recalls the concept of being a light in the darkness.
