Breathing influence from Marvin Gaye to Mura Masa, Ruben Young is an emerging modern soul crooner and budding songwriter from Calgary, Canada. With a classic charm, distinct raspy timbre and a Soulection-esq bounce, Ruben has become best known for his single "Rachel Green", an ode to 90's dreamgirl played by Jennifer Aniston on 'FRIENDS', which featured American rapper Hodgy Beats from Odd Future.
Since his debut in 2017, Ruben has released 5 singles independently through his own label, Young and Lucky. His efforts have earned him over five million streams, and a place on stage as direct support for international artists such as The Chainsmokers, Jarreau Vandal, Nelly, Akon, Classified, Langston Francis and Jocelyn Alice.
His most recent single, "Golden Hell" was released in front of 350 fans in Calgary at a one of a kind release party in Calgary in collaboration with the iconic cognac brand, Remy Martin. The single has since been in steady rotation on Stingray Music's R&B/Soul Channel, and was featured by Jamz Supernova on BBC Radio1 Extra.
In 2018, Ruben was nominated for Urban Artist of The Year at the Western Canadian Music Awards for his single, “Bad Habits” (produced by JUNO winner Classifed), which was also named one of the “Best Canadian Songs” by Complex’s Northern Touch List.
