The Ruiins’ is a collaboration of raw blues and vintage rock enriched by powerful vocals and a touch of character livening each song. The brother-like duo, Adam Dooker and Pat Sugden, hail from the New South Wales Mid North Coast and have graced audiences from Sydney all the way through to the trendiest venues of Brisbane. Stemming from their roots of a beach orientated lifestyle, Adam and Pat have manifested into a unique two-piece who claim a sound that is The Ruiins. With the use of captivating riffs, heartfilled vocals, and a foot-tapping beat, residing on the Gold Coast they have grown into a locally loved icon. There is no end-sight for the quirky pair as they face down the release of their debut single ‘Eventually’, working with the likes of Producer Sean Cook (Big Scary’s ‘Vacation’) the track has rich personality, humbling lyrics, and rhythm that will force you to groove.
