The Ruse: With a blend of stirring lyrics, hook-laden melodies, and arena-ready anthems, indie rock band The Ruse first captured national attention in 2008 with an MTV VMA Breakthrough Artist nomination, followed by a lead single iTunes named “Single Of The Week” (“Beautiful Is Gone”) and an accompanying album (Midnight In The City) that reached No. 21 on Billboard’s “Heatseekers” chart in June 2009. With three independently released LPs and two EPs, the entire catalogue delivers songs that crawl into your head and possess your emotions long after they are over. The band’s signature sound – a fusion of passionately-charged operatic vocals, guitar-heavy tracks, and commanding drum and bass lines – generates the feeling of a grandiose sweeping live performance. Vocalist John Dauer, guitarist Jim Bilus, and drummer Jason Young played together in a band since elementary school, prior to joining forces with bassist Mark Stolze in New York City to form the final lineup known as The Ruse in 2004. They released their first full-length album Light In Motion in 2006 and an EP just one year later titled Live At The Viper Room. After the group relocated to Los Angeles and found their stride with sophomore effort Midnight In The City, they experienced a groundswell of popularity with more than a dozen TV placements and appearances from HBO’s “Entourage” to MTV’s “The Hills.” On the heels of that success, the band immediately recorded and released their third LP Love Sex Confusion in 2010 and a 5-song EP titled Rebellion the following year.
