Guy A. Ruvolo is a super guitar player, and a clever writer/producer who delivers well crafted and catchy tunes. His 'retro' Pop Rock productions are thick with classic instrumentation and heavy on the groove. He’s a seasoned pro with many film scores, TV and AD credits. His favorite color is GREEN (from royalties), but he likes GOLD too, like his 2 CLIO’s. Hobbies include maintaining his Protools studio, playing ALL the instruments, and vacuuming. Guy also is a unique ‘character’ vocalist on Morning Radio spots and parodies are indeed crowd-pleasing.
Guy A. Ruvolo has often said, "I do it all myself, I don't need no stinking band". He gained huge AD experience and acclaim beginning last century while cutting at his NYC 5th Avenue production facility, and was in the company of the 'greats.' His clients included SWATCH, BURGER KING, McDonalds, ABC, NBC, CBS, The Clapper, and dozens of those crazy NYC Advertising Agency suits. Pop/ Rock credits (from his infant days) range in scope from The Ramones to Donna Summers. These days, he's cutting away in his MIAMI area facility, enjoying the Florida air-conditioning. Having been a Sound Designer for years, Guy's enviably talents are available right here on our site -- check out his vivid originality, chutzpah and a freaky sense of humor.
