My name is Rudolf L. Gruber. I´m living in Salzburg and I love and play music since my very youth. When I bought my first guitar at the age of 16, I liked to play songs from Bob Dylan, Gordon Lightfoot, Joan Baez, Neil Young, the Beatles and many others. Naturally sometimes I dreamed to become a musician by myself. But life has its own paths and so music just remained to be an important hobby for me.
Several years ago I started to write Songs by myself and from the first minute I felt much fun to create own melodies and lyrics. Since that day I write song-lyrics and compose instrumental music and songs in different styles. I always try to write impressive melodies and use various rhythms and styles.
All released pieces and songs on this website represent my first steps as a composer and songwriter. During the next few months I will arrange more songs and instrumental pieces with vocal tracks.
- Instruments that I play: Guitar, Piano, Organ
- Musical Development: autodidact, private education and classes with Duncan Lorien
