When asked how he might describe his music Ruslan throws a quizzical look, “That’s a tough one!” He settles on “jazz meets everything else,” with a laugh, and then adds, “My preferences gravitate more towards a certain level of musical content, rather than to a certain style or a particular vibe that I favor over any other. This leaves things pretty open for me, stylistically, both as a musician and a fan.”
A Grammy Award Winner, self-described as average height, skinny, “currently with a lot of hair on my head – no hair cut in months!” Ruslan is just as at home in elegant concert attire as he is in his Chuck Taylor’s and blue jeans. Currently living in Los Angeles, Ruslan has already traveled the world, playing with some of the biggest names in Jazz and pop music.
Ruslan is set to release his second CD in 2016 and is setting his sights on touring and performing his new music.
