Ruben V is an accomplished artist. He’s released eight solo CDs, 14 group albums and averages over 120 shows a year. He is a guitar player, songwriter, producer and family man. But first and foremost, there is the music. It’s a fresh, smooth blend of blues, Latin, soul, and rock. It’s an ambitious mix of the music that moves him and in his skillful hands, becomes a truly energizing and enjoyable experience. As he says, “it’s everything I love about music.” Hitting the road began at 15 for Ruben, who played in a string of bands and eventually landed an Indie record deal with his heavy metal band, Final Assault. Richard Mullen produced Ruben V’s first three CD’s: In His Hands, Home and Let Me In. Mullen’s previous work included Eric Johnson, Joe Ely, and Stevie Ray Vaughan. Every show is different; Ruben has a vast catalog of songs to pull from. They may play a familiar song but change the tempo or instruments.
