"New York is the central character in the story of my life,” says Rue. "It’s my longest relationship. It’s real love and heartbreak rolled into one. It’s the ex lover who sticks around after the pain stops. It’s the seasons that change no matter what. It’s poetry personified. It’s incapable of dishonesty.”
<i>City Living</i> was produced by Andrija Tokic (Alabama Shakes, Langhorne Slim, Hurray for the Riff Raff).
Rue toured the country extensively for the last four years playing bars and coffee shops in thirty-seven states. He’s built a loyal fan base one show at a time and amassed an impressive catalogue of music. He has released two records, four EPs, and six music videos, five of which he directed and edited. The video for his song "Heaven" was one of the first shot using a drone and won Best Music Video at the Sene Film Fest. His song, "Speak My Mind" was chosen as part of the political project, "1,000 Days, 1,000 Songs."
