Dive into the enchanting musical world of Ruben Gerards, where every note tells a story of introspection and wonder at the awe-inspiring beauty of the world around us. At 31, Ruben has already left an indelible mark on the music scene, with his previous EPs “Fractal” and “Manifold” amassing a staggering five million streams online and earning acclaim on national radio. Now he embarks on a daring new venture, delving into unexplored sonic territories with his latest EP, “Archipelago” where his delicate, melody-centered piano playing is accompanied by viola and cello. This formation broadens Ruben's auditive palette, but has the same intimate quality as his previous work. 

"Archipelago" is a musical odyssey comprising four tracks, each a sonic portrait of an island encountered during the transformative kayak journey through the Swedish wilderness Ruben made together with his partner. Just as the landscape shifted from lush greenery to rugged desolation, so too does Ruben's music traverse diverse sonic landscapes, constantly balancing between modern, jazz, and classical influences.

From the haunting melodies of “Embraced By The Water”, where a constant flow of notes mimics the sound and feeling of being surrounded by waves, to the sparse, minimalist textures of "We Keep Hope, Always", a meditation on how a minimalist retreat to nature can strengthen our connection to ourselves and the people around us, each composition offers a glimpse into the multifaceted beauty of these Scandinavian islands.

Don't miss the release of his evocative first single “The Sky Looks Vast Here” on May 24, paving the way for a breathtaking EP debut in September. Immerse yourself in the captivating world of Ruben Gerards as he invites you on a musical journey through pristine natural wonders.
