If Mike Ruby is being honest, he fell in love with music because of John Mayer. It’s something that took him from a successful jazz career through a pivot to singer-songwriter. After signing a record deal with a subsidiary of Universal Music at 19, Ruby moved to New York from his hometown Toronto. After opening slots with Ellie Goulding and playing festivals like Lollapalooza Ruby got a taste of the pop world as a sax player and wanted more. In just 4 years he learned to sing, write and play guitar proficiently. Now, the multi-talented artist is ready to stand on his own, in his own way, touting a fresh take of the genre with sax-influenced pop.
At just 22 years old, Kadiri James is set to make his solo musical debut in 2019. The Toronto-bred singer songwriter is quickly following in the footsteps and pulling inspiration from his hometown music stars, but has found his own voice and unique style in the world of Pop and R&B.
Most recently he was featured on “Here With Me” by American dance music producer and DJ, Mahalo. The infectious melody along with Kadiri’s uplifting vocals catapulted the tune into success, currently at 2 million Spotify streams and covered by a number of respected music blogs, including YourEDM, Acid Stag, and Sensual Musique.
