The Luckiest Man Alive, Shaun Ruymen

South Jersey native and current central Jersey resident SHAUN RUYMEN was my most recent guest on ROCK ON RADIO. This singer/songwriter whose talent exceeds his experience, is one of the good guys in music.

Playing guitar for less than a decade and doing so "to meet girls," RUYMEN has managed to surround himself with quality musicians that have served to only enhance his abilities. One time member of local band Almost Green, he honed his songwriting skills while contributing to their success.

Over the last couple of years he's been performing solo as well as with members from his former band. His first solo EP, "LUCKIEST MAN ALIVE," is only a microcosm of his true talent.

Listing his influences as Jason Mraz and Rob Thomas, among others, his vocal styling is very reminiscent of both. This is quite apparent on "LUCKIEST MAN ALIVE" as RUYMEN's vocals take precedent over all else on the EP.

Throughout his appearance on the program, numerous listeners commented and complimented his voice. There is also an element of soul in RUYMEN's voice that creates a very soothing blend on the EP in both his lighter side ("Emma"), as well as the more upbeat title track ("Luckiest Man Alive").

Performing both as a solo artist, as well as with a band, RUYMEN prefers the band atmosphere. Amassing a network of backing musicians, he's able to pick and choose from a "pool" of players that are willing to back him at a moment's notice.

A fan favorite of many local acoustic showcases and open mics, RUYMEN also plays many area bars and festivals. Next weekend he'll be performing at the Cape May Music Conference taking the stage at Aleathea's in the Cape May Inn on Friday, March 26.
