Breaking News: Rod Chase Ruffin is one of the winners of the:
"SingerUniverse Best Vocalist Awards"
Also awarded the:
"RadioIndy Gold Artist Award"
My award winning lead vocals will be featured on all its independant radio stations world wide.

Entertainer, bandleader, writer, musician, lead/background vocalist, vocal arranger published songwriter and poet. Has composed, recorded and toured extensively in the U.S. and Europe, now based out of California. He is currently available for national/international bookings and songwriting commissions; commercials and recording projects a specialty.
Chase is a gifted songwriter who can be credited for having many of his songs performed by artists from all over the world.
Other credits during his career include working with: Gene Chandler, Chuck Berry, Parliament Funkadelic, Shelia E, Narada Michael Walden, The Jazz Crusaders, Jeffery Osborne, Frieda Payne, Quiet Riot and many others.

I have written or co-wrote for many national/international personalities including: Boni Boyer of Prince and The NPG, Rusty Allen of Sly & TFS, Dennis Edwards of the Temptations, Mel & Tim, Fontella Bass, Phil Perry, Jamie Hawkins, Brian Simms, Ivory Monkey, Sonata Pi, We Friends and Charles Wells. I write my songs to the performer or subject with precision, incite and intensity but: "I can make ya dance" or just groove. My lyrics are strong, poetic, imaginative, introspective and intelligent. Let me tell your story!
My biggest songwriting influences are:
The Beatles, Elton John/Bernie Taupin, Smokey Robinson, Marvin Gaye, Billy Joel, Peter Gabriel, Robert Plant/Jimmy Page, Joni Mitchell, George Clinton and Prince.

Because my music and voice cross many musical boundries; I can tailor shows to events, moods and venues.
