Adam Ruzzo is a modern day Canadian troubadour - an avid wanderer of the many quiet corners of Canada, a former resident of his self-built off grid log cabin alongside Algonquin Park in Ontario, an active performing musician in places like Toronto and St. John's Newfoundland, and a collaborator with musicians from coast to coast. His experiences have turned him into a real student and interpreter of the vast and sparsely populated land he calls home. He also finds inspiration in wild landscapes, and musically aims to express the awe inspiring beauty of these silent places.
In addition to over a decade of playing and singing for everyday folks in bars and small venues, Adam holds a Master's degree in Classical Guitar Performance from the University of Toronto and remains an active performer and composer of instrumental guitar music. His dedication to classical guitar earned him first place in the FCMF National Music Competition in 2010 and a spot as a featured guest speaker at TedxAlgonquinPark for his original guitar compositions dedicated to the area. The most recent culmination of his experience is a 16-song album 'The Land, The Sea, The People' - a musical snapshot of life and stories from places off the beaten path in Canada. The album has been charting for fourteen weeks and counting in Community and Campus Radio charts across Canada, including reaching top ten in East Coast Top Thirty, and stations in Halifax, Calgary, Abbotsford and Kamloops.
Adam is currently van dwelling around Eastern Canada and is a budding YouTuber!
