My Music

music colourI’m a songwriter and singer.  Over the years I’ve written, played and performed in different genres. Here are a few songs from the pop/rock world:


Better Off
A rock song where the Icarus story is woven into a narrative about romance. [Copyright by Matthew Ruttan, (SOCAN); written by Matthew Ruttan; produced by Mike Wrucke. Published by Sony/ATV Tree Music Publishing.]


Shooting Star
A song in the rock/pop genre likening a person to a shooting star. [Copyright by Matthew Ruttan, (SOCAN); written by Matthew Ruttan; produced by Mike Wrucke. Recorded in Nashville.]


When We Are Angels
This is a slower tempo song and is a commentary on the “Little Apocalypse” in chapter 13 of Mark’s Gospel. It’s a demo from several years ago. [Copyright by Matthew Ruttan, (SOCAN); written by Matthew Ruttan; produced by Mike Wrucke.]


Adrenaline
The word “adrenaline” is used here as a synonym of ‘Spirit’ or ‘Word’ as a gift from God upon the occasion of trust/belief. [Copyright by Matthew Ruttan, (SOCAN); written by Matthew Ruttan; produced by Mike Wrucke.]


The Joke’s On You
This song is a strange blend of things—but one of my favourites. Almost pseudo-country meets Stone Temple Pilots. The line in the chorus is: “The joke’s on you if you can’t let go.”


The New Caffeine
I remember starting to write the lyrics to this while living in Toronto working as an office manager for PCL Constructors.  I was doing various jobs to make ends meet while working the music scene. [Copyright by Matthew Ruttan, (SOCAN); written by Matthew Ruttan; produced by Mike Wrucke. Published by Song/ATV Tree Music Publishing.]


Many songs have been written since these and I hope to record some of them soon!  You may see some arrive as acoustic solo recordings with just lyrics and guitar.

Enjoy!
