"Leon Ruvel is a multi talented songwriter"

"Leon Ruvel´s music takes you on a journey of retro sounds fronted by piano and vocals that keep you entertained throughout the song. His musicianship is multi talented, from playing all the instruments to layering all the harmonies. His music is a refreshing new take on classic 70's progressions and production." - Murray Yates (gold record-winning artist and music producer)

Debut EP

  • Love You Stranger
  • Please Peace
  • Mama Said



Leon Ruvel’s music is intense and romantic.

According to Ruvel:

“I compose and write both for those in love and for the broken hearted; for the ones whose beings and souls are in danger, or at peace. At the end of the day we all have been on both sides of the coin”.

Songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Leon Ruvel (vocals, piano, guitar, bass, and harmonica) grew up in Mexico, where the daily living is a rush; a contrast between black and white, good and evil, but always a country full of art and romance. These factors forged Leon's sensitive music, and influenced his song writing. His repertoire ranges from love songs to protest lyrics.

Leon Ruvel´s music, accompanied by his piano and guitar, make a distinctive sound in the genre of rock-pop and soft rock. His way of setting beautiful lyrics to slow and upbeat melodies finds its way into the hearts and minds of people from different cultures and ages.

Leon was a member of different bands from 2003 to 2014 performing around Mexico and Canada.


Following his heart, he decided to start a solo project and settle down in Vancouver in 2019. He recently finished the recording of his first EP that includes three songs of his own. All instruments are played by Ruvel. The EP was recorded and produced by Murray Yates (gold record-winning artist and music producer) at Echoman Records, in Vancouver B.C.

Show Description

Leon presents his show in two different formats: as a solo act or as a duet.  His  music is performed naturally, without the use of backing tracks. Everything is played live.

 As a solo act you can see him changing from the piano to the guitar from song to song, which makes for a dynamic show.

The duet format allows Leon to be mostly on the piano while his guitarist plays the solos and strums the chords of the songs.

In both formats Leon brings to the stage an 88-key electric piano, one or two electric guitars, pedal effects processors, and two vocal microphones.
