After leaving the city life to build and live in an off grid cabin, Adam Ruzzo has since become a wandering troubadour who has performed and collaborated all across Canada, ever seeking to capture the authentic essence of stories and sense of place in his music. He also finds inspiration in wild landscapes, and musically aims to breathe new life into these seldom-seen and silent places.
Adam’s diverse musical influences and experience has made him something of a stylistic shape-shifter. Both a prize winning Classical Guitarist with a Master's degree in Music Performance and over fifteen years of performing for audiences in bars and intimate venues around Canada, he is completely at home singing songs for audiences on a Friday night at the bar, playing in traditional Irish sessions at the pub, performing a classical guitar concert or rocking out with an electric guitar. His instrumental guitar music dedicated to Algonquin Park in Canada landed him a guest speaking spot for a Tedx Talk and his original folk music has charted on Campus and Community Radio across Canada for the past several years. His performing life has brought him to venues like the Royal York Hotel in Toronto, The Segwun Steamship in Muskoka, The Ship Pub in St. John's and on The Ocean Endeavour main stage in the Arctic Ocean.
In his original music, he keeps one foot firmly rooted in the influences of traditional folk with artists like Stan Rogers and Daoirí Farrell, while also going blue ocean into the realm of electric guitar soundscapes, instrumental soundtrack and folk/rock fusion. Most recently, Adam has been performing on Expedition Cruises in the high Arctic with Adventure Canada and is working on his seventh studio album.
