Growing up in Sydney, Australia Rustee began playing music at the age of five when he was dragged to piano lessons. Ironically, he hated every moment but the result of those dreaded piano lessons was the discovery of a passion for creating music.
As Rustee’s music career has grown, his musical style has developed with him. There is no typical comparisons to his music but could best be described as rhythmic, electric and raw. Along with piano, he also plays drums and guitar which has had a direct influence on his unique style.
Rustee is working on the finishing touches of a full length album which he plans on releasing worldwide. He describes his upcoming album as a cross between a rock show and a musical and the first single to be featured will be “Break Free.” The album is about a twisted love story with each song linking to the next; the album telling a story. Rustees music is of a deeply personal nature, the honesty and openness in which he reveals himself is what engages the listener from beginning to end. It is quite clear that his personal life is where he draws the inspiration for each song and he isn’t timid about revealing it.
You get the sense that creating music has given Rustee’s life a real sense of purpose and direction. That is why when listening to Rustee you not only hear his music, but you experience his life journey, right there along with him.
