After playing sold-out rooms throughout the UK, Europe and Asia, and making history as the youngest male artist to sell out Sydney’s iconic Opera House (twice), ARIA-award winning multi-instrumentalist, songwriter and performer Ruel will release his highly anticipated sophomore EP FREE TIME on Friday 13 September and embark on his most ambitious tour to date.

The tour kicks off on Thursday 19 September in Brisbane, before hitting Adelaide, Melbourne, Sydney and Hobart. Throughout the run, Ruel will treat fans to a completely new stage production and brand new music from the new EP.

The EP’s first single Painkiller has already gathered over 20 million streams in just two months, adding toRuel’s overall 300 million+ global streams. The new body of work is the next step in the evolution of an artist who began playing guitar and writing songs at only 8 years of age. It demostrates Ruel’s maturity as a songwriter able take on any genre and unsatisfied staying in the lanes of Pop and RnB.

2019 saw the star collaborating with Australian legends Hilltop Hoods for their track ‘Fire & Grace’ and later performing with them on the main stage at this year’s Splendour in the Grass Festival. He also recently performed at California’s legendary Coachella festival with British producer SG Lewis on their electro collaboration ‘Flames’.
