The critics say: "Stockfisch Records has always been renowned for its talent
to select the best of the best. With Eugene Ruffolo, Günter Pauler and his
Knights of the Sound Table have chosen a world-class singer-songwriter to appear
on their label. in a different light, his new album to be released on
Stockfisch, is sure to reach as many hearts as ears."
With Eugene Ruffolo from New York, Stockfisch has chosen a world class
singer-songwriter to appear on the label. Ruffolo’s fabulously intense
musicality is reminiscent of many an artist, especially of Marc Cohn.
Growing up outside of New York City, the son of a fashion designer and
passionate classical guitarist, Eugene was immersed daily in his father’s music.
Ruffolo's own guitar sounds big and warm, its interplay with exceptional
guitarist John Jennings masterfully recorded and of lucid beauty.
His lyrics prove Ruffolo to be not only an avid scholar of literature, but also
a poet himself. Without ever erring towards kitsch in the slightest degree, his
songs are tasteful miniatures dealing with the time-honored subject of all poets
– love and its many splendoured ways – be it lost love remembered (When we were
kings), the love of one’s home town (For a look at you) or love celebrated in
the hymn-like Beyond Love.
