Eugene reminds of James Taylor
Saturday November 7th 2020
New York City singer/songwriter Eugene Ruffolo stands out for his beautiful songs, crystal-clear voice and beautiful guitar playing. A comparison with James Taylor is easily made. "Masculine, yet sensitive and elegant at the same time. An utterly intriguing voice! " according to Rolling Stone magazine. In addition to his original music, Eugene’s unique vocal talents have made him a favorite of many prominent artists, with whom he has shared the stage. Both in the studio and in live performance, he has worked with artists as diverse as Garth Brooks, Tony Bennett, Kenny Loggins, David Wilcox, Run DMC, Mary Chapin Carpenter, Lori Lieberman, Spyro Gyra, Cheryl Wheeler, and Livingston Taylor to name a few.
For his most recent album ‘’Canto Per Mangiare’’, Eugene returned to his Italian roots. With a collection of Italian songs he celebrates both his heritage and his love of Mediterranean folk and popular music.
With his upcoming release ‘’Ten Good Sermons’’ he explores a new path. Like his previous record i twill be a departure from his past work moving away from themes of love and loss and addressing more universal issues of the mind and spirit. With ten songs that explore themes such as forgiveness, precious friendships and the search for existential truth. Ten songs, each with a unique message, expressed in the personal and intimate style that we are used to from Eugene.
