DETAILED BIO: Ruben Moreno

Ruben Moreno a proud young Chicano-Creole Zydeco artist born and raised in Houston, Texas. Dynamic Youthful Energy. Hot ~ Sizzlin Hot … Locked down dance groove … A new breed of Zydeco artist taking the form to whole new levels. Ruben has started his very own “Zydeco RE-Evolution” and is sharing it with the world.

Over the past two decades Ruben has set the world on fire with his melodic voice, his skills as one of the world’s finest rubboard players and as a uniquely innovative Zydeco performer.

Ruben has been immersed in music his WHOLE life starting with his father’s Chicano lineage, rich with Grammy Winning Tejano artists. A child prodigy, he learned to play percussion by 8 and the accordion by age of 11. Yet it was his mother’s Creole lineage which had the gravitational pull that drew him up on stage playing scrubboard with his uncle, Leroy Thomas and the Zydeco Roadrunners.

A veteran of the musical road, he began playing in clubs at age 13, and by age 15 he hit the road, never looking back, playing professionally with his uncle Leroy Thomas, Grammy nominated Zydeco artist and crowned Prince of Zydeco … CJ Chenier, and finally Andre Thierry ... his musical idol and mentor in the San Francisco Bay area, having toured all over North America, Central America, and Europe.

Ruben is a dynamic steward of this generation of Zydeco musicians. On stage playing Zydeco … balancing fundamental respect for the traditional sounds and dance grooves … with a willingness to take Zydeco in fresh directions absorbing rhythmic and melodic edges from the cultures and generations he’s immersed in.

Beyond Zydeco, Ruben has collaborated with a wide range of nationally and internationally recognized performing artists such as celebrated Chicano Band, Los Lobos, R&B sensation Léon Bridges, musical chameleons Gio Chamba, Houston music legend Nick Gaitan, Brazilian pop star Diego Diaz, Malian Roots super star, Vieux Farka, and psychedelic funk band, Khruangbin.
