Once in a blue moon you’ll hear a voice that floors you. That’s how it was when Grammy-winning producer M-Phazes was handed a demo recording of unknown artist, Ruel. Dripping in soulful authenticity, this was the voice of a broken heart that had been smoking cigarettes and downing whiskey for the past 40 years. Now imagine hearing that, and then finding out he was 12.
This is how an unknown from Sydney ended up becoming the protégé of super producer M-Phazes and would later feature on his critically acclaimed ‘Golden Years’ single.
Exploding onto screens across the globe, Ruel made his live radio debut with M-Phazes on triplej’s ‘Like A Version’ as the youngest-ever featured performer on the segment, performing a haunting cover of Jack Garratt’s ‘Weathered’ gathering half a million video views in less than 48 hours.
There’s a lot to be said about the fact that Ruel penned his first song ‘Don’t Tell Me’ when he was just 12 years old. Or the fact that he was invited to perform private showcases all over the world for industry heavyweights. But it’s the raw talent of this now 15-year-old that’s turning heads and getting people talking.
Ruel is ready to break the mould with his soulful take on modern pop and we think you're going to LOVE him!
Fan favourite 'Don't Tell Me' has already gained over 1.6 million views on You Tube, and has had a massive 13 million streams on Spotify! Impressive right? If you haven't heard it, give him a listen below 👇
