Brooklyn-based artist Rue Snider has been turning heads with his combination of 80’s rock and indie-folk and punk.

Brooklyn-based singer songwriter Rue Snider combines 80s alt sonics with a lyrical style reminiscent of 60s rock revolutionaries. His new album City Living is a loose chronicle of his move to Manhattan in the mid aughts and an examination of the thoughts and choices that occur while living in transition: geographically, emotionally, spiritually, politically, and socially. City Living is upbeat musically with lyrics that reflect real human experiences, from falling in love at Coney Island, to wandering Brooklyn heartbroken, to standing up to injustice.

City Living was produced by Andrija Tokic (Alabama Shakes, Langhorne Slim, Hurray for the Riff Raff).

Rue toured the country extensively for the last four years playing bars and coffee shops in thirty-seven states. He’s built a loyal fan base one show at a time and amassed an impressive catalogue of music. He has released two records, four EPs, and six music videos, five of which he directed and edited. The video for his song "Heaven" was one of the first shot using a drone and won Best Music Video at the Sene Film Fest. His song, "Speak My Mind" was chosen as part of the political project, "1,000 Days, 1,000 Songs."
