Composer Songwriter


Robert Ruby has written hundreds of songs in countless styles, including pop, rock, jazz, blues, folk, country, indie, alternative, rock, ballad, and musical theater.

Robert's influences are diverse, yet his sound is cohesive and familiar. His specialty is melodies; his are immediate yet unexpected, and the effect is arresting. He create arrangements by layering acoustic, electric, and electronic instruments to develop atmospheric yet driving soundscapes.

He has been commissioned to write and orchestrate original songs for musicals that are in development; written and recorded original soundtracks for video games, internet videos, and theater productions; performed original jazz tunes with a jazz combo band; released albums of original music; and thrown charity concerts with his original songs headlining.
