SWEET!!! It's official for Ruel now! XD

Recommended Posts

 

I am actually really anxious to hear an entire album from Ruel! He's only 15 and Elton John picks him up and is working to make him the next big thing. How awesome is that? And this kid is good! Writes his own music too! He's like...the 'Comsie story' version of Adele...if you can believe that! But he's got a VEVO account now, and a video reshoot of his first single, "Don't Tell Me"! I'm looking to hear great things from him in the future! Best of luck, dude! :) 

 

CUTE TOO!!! Just thought I'd throw that in there... :P

Just a FEW more...in case you had any doubts! Hehehe! If Elton John launches him the way Usher did Bieber...he's gonna be EVERYWHERE soon! Which is a good thing!

He has moved up fast. This is from his FB page on April 4th.

Hmm. Comsie version of Adele. Sums up his tone well in Don't Tell Me. Love that we don't see who answers the door.

Can anyone tell me his last name? :P Even the great and powerful Wikipedia doesn't know. :o

From what I've seen, Ruel is listed as his stage name. It may not even be part of his real name. He doesn't disclose who his parents are or if he has any siblings. He seems intent on keeping his personal life private.

 I finally found it at the very end of an article from last year. You can't keep anything secret in the age of information. The name is very Dutch and un-Australian.

Well, good for him. In this era, where almost nothing is private anymore, we should hold on to whatever semblance of privacy we have left. :yes:

Still going, full steam ahead! It's also really cool that he gets to stay in the studio and have a hands-on approach and final say in his own music. ALWAYS a good thing for any artist! Things are looking good!

 

 

And a short interview, as well...

He's a handsome young man, very photogenic. And a charismatic fellow, too. :)
