Josh Ruzycki

Freelance Musician

My story


    I was born and raised in Edmonton, Alberta. I grew up  skating on outdoor rinks to work on my slapshot and cheering for the Edmonton Oilers. Besides my love for hockey, my passion for music started when I was only 5 years old. My grandparents introduced me to country music and it's been quite the journey ever since. I've performed thousands of songs from local bars to huge summer festivals across Canada. I've played venues such as the Winspear Centre, Centerfield Music Festival, Big Valley Jamboree, and the Rainmaker Music Festival.

          I am a singer and a songwriter, but the majority of my time on stage is playing lead guitar and singing harmonies backing up other artists. I am so grateful for all of the amazing people I've met and performed with on the road, it's my favorite part of my job.


     Some of my accomplishments include: ACMA Top 5 Musician of the Year (2018), 3 NACMAI North American Country   

Music Association International Awards for Male Vocalist of the year, Male Entertainer of the year, and Songwriter of the year (2016).
