Ruben Young is a 25 year old independent pop artist from Calgary.
His debut single "Take Her Down" has taken the interwebs by storm, landing a high spot on iTunes Canada's Pop Chart.
His soulful voice gives his sound a contemporary twist merging future bass synths and catchy melodies. Not a lot of indie artists can nail this like Ruben Young has.
I wrote "Take Her Down" 2 years ago with an old band mate, and finished it after 11 months in the studio with producer Steve Rokosh in Calgary.
It is the perfect prelude to the unique sound from his upcoming debut record The Bad Habits EP, which blends soul vocals, pop melodies and future bass synths.
This multi-talented young artist is also the founder of a 50 day-long music festival called 50 Days YYC, which landed him a recognition as a young-innovator in the Canadian Arts by Business for the Arts Young Professionals Summit.
