“Not Thinkin’ Bout You” is featured on 15-year-old London-born, Australian-raised Ruel’s incredible debut EPReady. Available on all digital platforms worldwide, the 6-track EP was produced by Ruel’s good friend, mentor and collaborator M-Phazes (Eminem, Logic, Kimbra, Zara Larsson, KYLE) and includes previously released standouts, “Don’t Tell Me,” and “Dazed & Confused.”
After picking up and learning to play the guitar at 8 years old, Ruel started to write songs of his own, drawing inspiration from Amy Winehouse, Stevie Wonder, Dave Brubeck, Frank Ocean and James Blake. Drawing from his own experiences as a teenager, Ruel explains “all my songs are about personal experiences. Songwriting helps me get through things, feelings that I don’t understand myself. When I write about something, it helps me figure it out in the process. But I want people of all ages, whether they’re 15 or 50, to be able to relate to my songs.”
