Saturday Showcase at Nazareth Center for the Arts

On Saturday, September 11, 2010, the Nazareth Center for the Arts presents The Saturday Showcase Series with Jesse Ruben.

In late June, the 23 year old singer/songwriter signed an exclusive, world-wide publishing deal with BMG. Laurent Hubert, COO North America, BMG said: “Jesse is a highly talented singer and songwriter who has the ability to craft meaningful songs with commercial appeal. We are very happy to support his young career with whatever it needs – today and tomorrow.”

Ruben’s most familiar song, “A Lack of Armor” was a finalist in last year’s John Lennon songwriting contest. Songs like “Bleecker and 6th,” “Unbreakable” and “Ace of Spades,” display more of his unique talent. His tunes have also been featured on the TV show One Tree Hill and as promos for The History Channel. On the strength of his live performance on Sirius XM's Coffee House channel, the station added two songs into regular rotation and called him "The Next Generation of Singer-Songwriter.”

Touring for the past 6 years, opening for Jewel, Parachute, Brendan James, Chase Coy, Ryan Cabrera and Bobby Long among others, Jesse managed to build up a huge fan base. To support the release of his new album, The Ones That Matter, produced by Chris Keup (Jason Mraz, Parachute), Jesse and his band performed sold-out shows in New York, Boston, Philadelphia and Connecticut.

Jesse’s show on Saturday begins at 7:30, tickets are $10 and available online, at Mitch’s Market in Nazareth (Belvidere and New Streets), or at the door.
