A genuine pop phenomenon, RUEL has plaudits for days and songs for weeks. Like all great megastars in the making, Ruel was discovered busking by Grammy award-winning producers, M Phazes. after breaking hearts throughout highschool. His critically acclaimed debut READY EP, spawned the multi-platinum and Gold status singles ‘Dazed & Confused’ and ‘Younger’. Since then, he’s nailed more than a few firsts, like being the youngest artist to twice sell out The Sydney Opera House and to win a Breakthrough Artist ARIA (at 16!). He’s just released a new EP titled Free Time, which includes recent singles ‘Painkiller’, ‘Face To Face’ and latest drop ‘Real Thing’. Ruel’s serious business, with more than 300 million streams around the world, driven by an army of fans. We’re so excited to welcome him to Laneway.
