July 10, 2013

“Embarking On His Professional Music Journey In The Summer Of 2010, Singer-Songwriter Tim Ruff Eagerly Bolted Out Of The Gates With High Hopes And A Keen Suspicion As To How His “Acoustic Crooner” Style Would Go Over In The Real World. Tim Is Originally From The Magical Shores Of Lake Michigan In Northwest Indiana Where He First Started Writing Songs.

  • I’ve made this place my home. Needless to say, Pittsburgh has really grown on me in ways I couldn’t have imagined. I’ve made friends and acquaintances all throughout the city, and people of this community are the type I love to be around. The people here can be busy and bustling, but they all seem to know how to sit down at the end of a long day and just be. This place is full of discoveries and memories waiting to be made. It really is. I’ve discovered. And I’ve made memories. Looking forward to plenty more.
  • Thanks, Tim. Congrats on the CD. Really nice collection of songs.
