About

Professionally-minded drummer seeking to form a project with other M.I.T. educated pros. seeking to achieve success in their chosen career path.

Originally conceived as a simple musical project it has blossomed into a multi-media monstrosity! 

 We will make a few concept albums. Not familiar with concept albums? Simple, think of an entire album based on one sole subject. 

Currently toying with the idea of an album dedicated strictly to the ocean and another on video games. Other ideas would have to be decide on as a unit.

Along side the concept albums, an art book would also be printed. The book would contain original poetry, essays and art pieces. Contributions would come from not only within the band but also artists not directly associated with the band!

Finally, there would be an instructional dvd of my unique conga-playing technique! Both variations! 

In addition to the parts that make up the project as a whole, there would also be 2 extra audio components created special for our most generous benefactors! 

A special vinyl pressing of all-original, all-acoustic tunes!

The other half of this incentive-only recordings is a special personalized 2-disc set! That's right a song made for you, our generous donators! There would be 13 tracks on each disc, that's 26 tracks...all based on your favorite things!

More info. on the rewards section!

I feel the main idea behind this is love. Helping others. I know, you're probably thinking, "how is this helping others".

Studying at M.I.'s, P.I.T. program in Hollywood (that's the percussion dept., folks!)...been out there for about 10 years. It can get cold. I figure if I can get the funds together to do this, I'd be able to help other struggling artists put food on their tables!

With the addition of the art book, not only other musicians but visual artists would be helped in breaking into the main stream!

Don't have a band together at the moment...hopefully, I can get this going by early December to give those in mind a special X-Mas this year! 

Any inquiries, kindly contact me via Twitter! 

Thanks for checking this out! Hope to soothe your souls with terrific tunes by next year's end! 

Namaste, 

Ruddy
