In this new entry in our ‘Diamonds In The Rough’ category, we want to introduce you to upcoming artist Justin Ruff and his brand new project titled Sessions Vol. 1.
Justin Ruff offers up some intimate acoustic bops with his new EP, Sessions Vol. 1. With musical influences ranging from Ella Fitzgerald to Jhene Aiko, Maxwell, and Kendrick Lamar, he wanted to explore a different side of his own sound with this project.
He had the pleasure of attending college with some of the most gifted musicians in Chicago. Naturally, he asked them to join him for this project. From elements like upright bass and acoustic guitar, the EP gives an “unplugged” feeling, hence the name “Sessions.”
We hope you’ll lend your ear for a quick journey. With a run time of just over 11 mins, this EP won’t cut too far into your day. Just long enough to make you feel like you’re in a dimly lit, candle-scented Justin Ruff session room. He even curated his own line of candles to go along with the project for a truly immersive experience. Available now on his website.
