Born in a suburb of Linz (Austria) RUHMER started out as a drummer and slowly forged his own twisted path. Working as a recording engineer on film sets around the world he seemingly strolled off his track – when in 2019 his life took a sudden turn. Without a home for a year, constantly on the road and being on tour as a drummer, RUHMER started working on his first musical drafts – and ultimately committed to his true dream.

– Who am I in this universe – Was it your dream i was wishing for –

With a cheap Bass and an old Telecaster from a friend he took off to Calais. Not knowing any french he spent most of the time under the roof of a small shack. Drawing on his surroundings and most intimate thoughts, heading out for long walks that always left him stranded on the beach, he produced a rock oriented sound while still encompassing all manner of musical styles in unexpected ways. 

– If I stop being me, who else would I be –

Back in Austria he produced and mixed those first couple of songs while already focusing on his strong imagery. Together with Nous Film from Berlin (√ĄTNA) he creates his own vintage colored world. On the 25th of September 2020 RUHMER released his first single KILL ME NOW (INK Music) and entered the Radio FM4 Charts on #3.

RUHMER’s latest single TRUTH is the result of a 24h straight solo writing, recording and mixing session and was released only 2 weeks after. It entered the Spotify “Indie Brandneu” Playlist on #14!
