Influenced by a wide variety of country rock and having been actively involved in the southern Alberta music scene for the past 35 years, Rudy’s musical performance and song writing has been compared to Blue Rodeo, John Fogerty/CCR and the Eagles. Rudy has gained industry respect for his musicianship, talent and passion for his live performances having played in almost every venue across Western Canada and into the United States in multiple genre groups and musical projects.
Rudy picked up a guitar at age thirteen playing in several local high school and college bands until he found intermediate success with the Southern Alberta pioneers of First Nations contemporary music, the Strayhorse Band. For over two decades Rudy was the principal guitar player and co-lead vocalist for the group developing and honing his skill as a renowned all-round musician. Rudy later teamed up with Ira Provost to record the award-winning Blackfoot Sky album as a lead-guest vocalist. Later in his career, Rudy became the lead guitar player for the Armond Duck Chief Band playing every major musical venue and casino in Alberta, Saskatchewan and Montana. Throughout his career, Rudy has been the opening act for Blue Rodeo, Crystal Shawanda, Ian Tyson, Corb Lund, and Gary “Litefoot” Davis.
Building upon his vast musical experience, influence of his father and musical friendships he’s acquired over the years, Rudy made the choice to venture out on his own. Never Down is an expression of musical celebration and determination of life, love and friendship in the face of adversary and is the first of his forthcoming EP later this year.
