15/10/16 RuAch News: Patience With Determination

vonj-band-155801a
Peace & blessings people. Hope all of you are progressing well in all of your endeavours, in the quest to becoming the best you can be.

The broad experiences I have been through this year have helped me grow in understanding  all the aspects of my abilities, testing my mental, physical, and spiritual capacities. My journey has taught me that If you have a business or a dream of which you want to either make happen or take to another level,  We must be prepared to practice our patience and determination, because there will be sacrifices you will have to make to get there.

& when I state “sacrifice” I do not mean “selling out”, We need to make sure we are honest with ourselves no matter what we strive to achieve in life, you see many people have “sold out” to get to a high level financially, thinking they would be alright at the end, But deep in their heart of hearts they will always be fighting with that feeling of disturbance, emptiness & anxiety, thus those fruits of their labor will taste bitter no matter how much they try to fool themselves in that what they did was justified.  the words “Sell out” and “Not being yourself” should both be run synonymously.

So I want to show that it is possible to get where you want to be with enough patience & determination.

What you see me doing with all the up & coming works is taking my time on the long road round to building something that could inspire someone to do greater within their chosen movement.

Once again I would like to thank you all for your kind messages, & showing love & support to independent musicians. RuAch is the latest album we are plugging both online & on the ground, The Only way to listen to the music is to download it or buy the physical copy, RuAch’s on Amazon, I-Tunes, http://www.vonjruach.com/shop etc you can see a “raw cut” as to how the album was made on https://www.youtube.com/vonjvision

& we have plenty more to give you this year, as we walk together.

Currently we are seeking for more musicians to complete our group enabling us to bring the album to life next year along with plenty more new songs. We are especially looking for a dynamic Piano/keyboard player based in the southwest England, So if you can play? Feel free to contact us @ vonjproductions@gmail.com

Otherwise we hope ya’ll out there continue to have a prosperous weekend.

Love & Unity

Ruach News: The Expansion! 17/08/16

vonj band 155119A

Peace & love family

Within each step we take we continue to thank you all for your support. Since the launch of RUACH a few weeks ago things have really amped up on my corner!,  Hence I have not had as much time as I wanted to post blogs, There is much I have to say, But I will deliver these messages in due course.

I have been boots on ground in these Brexit streets distributing Ruach, I aim to get the new album in to as many independent stores as I can by the end of the year, Nationally and internationally. We are rocking hard & the reaction of the people when they hear this “anonymous  music” via DJ’s playing in clubs has been breath taking to me!.  But  I am also learning a few things along this long independent journey…

Yes the rumors are true!, There are some dogs out there dressed in expensive suits, just waiting to bite you in this industry. I will not mention any names but there have been certain record labels that have approached me on my journey, & various false individuals who have wanted to “represent” me, But guess what?  Due to experience we are privy to anyone’s dirty game. So I pose this question, Why is honesty a hard thing to ask for in any industry?.

In one of my songs I say “why is everyone competing while we have already won the race”, There are too many people in life who will try to sell you a model that does not work merely to try and keep up with another individual or organization. We must try to find something that works for ourselves before we share it or test it on someone else, This is one of the reasons I chose to blog online, so that I can simply disseminate certain principals of life that have worked for me.

So again we thank you all for your emails  & support. independent musicians need this!

We are organizing a music video of which we will keep you all updated on.

As you should all know, the raw Ruach documentary is out on YouTube of which I will post a link on a separate blog.

Meantime if you want to get the new music, please follow these links bellow

Peace & love from the Ruach family, Be blessed, Stay strong, be encouraged & know that in the right spirit you can achieve anything in life!.

Ruach News: Take heart! 29/07/16

IMAG0348

Love & Unity people, I hope we have all had a positive & progressive week, This has been one of those inspiring yet heavy weeks for me personally, I recently learned that my great family friend, brother Julius Mutunga passed away this week. This came too sudden for the family, As this guy was a sent angel to us, This is one of those people of whom very few if not none could walk in his shoes. One strong individual!, Just like my father was, whom also has transcended. I remember me & Julius always talked about recording an album together, But the opportunity never came to pass. So I suppose we will Jam Again, But in another realm of existence, the higher entities. We love Julius, Rest in Power brother!, (on the picture Julius is on the electric guitar, & that’s Lil Vonj smiling on the bass)

My experiences in life have been extreme, especially for someone still in his 20s, we have witnessed & experienced the very WORST & the very BEST of the things in life, But this means nothing If one is not learning from experience, & through this  we come to understand our purpose in life, There are reasons why we are exposed to certain experiences. For me I realize that In actual fact I am in a privileged state, Because now I am able to share my experiences to others, providing comfort, motivation,  &  elevation to the people who are going through certain situations.

I try to use music as my MAIN vehicle to disseminate resolutions to people, I always have, & I will always will.

So with Spirit we remain working against the grain 24/7 Literally, because we also note down our dreams, “one of the greatest key parts in our life experience”.

Take heart people!.

The album Ruach is out on 261 stores online, You can’t miss it!.
I-Tunes being the most popular choice for downloads, Here is a special link to the 3 singles we released.
https://itunes.apple.com/gb/album/ruach-single/id1138394081

Physical copies can be ordered directly through http://vonjruach.com/shop

I also learned that a few tracks are already in rotation on certain obscure radio stations!, so keep an ear out! As we are officially international!.

I will let you know when the new video is out on our channels.

We really thank you all for your support. Keep spreading the word.

Love & Unity from the RUACH family.

Vonj, Carmine, Martin, Mat, Garry.

Have a great weekend family.

Peace & Ruach People!

Y’all alright today?? y’all staying strong??, because remember…no matter what situation you are in?, good or bad?, there is only one thing that you can always aspire towards, RISING UP & Getting better within yourself & everything that you do!.

I’ve been in the midlands (England) doing session work for other folk, But nothing will compare to what is in store the day Ruach hits the stages!. I have always been about “LIVE” performance, & as much as we would like to build our reputation on “social media”, The real intention is to actually bring people OUT of the digital world & into the REAL world, No matter how sweet music may sound on a record/mp3, Nothing will ever compare to a live experience, This is why we should move towards appreciating musicians even more while they yet live, Because no matter how you may dig tunes like “So What”, No matter how you may dig “Purple rain”, That real & actual experience is gone with those artists forever!, & there are NO high end speakers, amplifiers, Full HD 3D, virtual reality, holographic systems that will ever come close to replicating the feeling received from an original live experience.

So “we want to bring you OUT!”, But first we are working towards setting the “right conditions”,  We look forward to inviting you to the party!

Meantime I have been doing research on what mainstream online store serves most convenient and offers a decent deal for both the artist & the consumer, Currently I recommend downloading Ruach through “Google play” our link is as follows..

https://play.google.com/store/music/album/Vonj_Ruach?id=B4ecfotssvzk4bn2s7535tasksq

Look out Next Wednesday the 27th!, for some RAW footage that will quickly take you through the journey in the studio (the cave) creating the Ruach album project, included will be sneak bites of the songs included on the album & also the tracks that were not included.

So Remember to spread the word & subscribe to the websites that we have 100% control over..

We love & appreciate your support people, never forget this.

Peace & blessings from the Ruach family

Ruach: News

Ruach front cover

Peace & love to those who were quick to show their support for Ruach, It has been just over 24hours now since the official release & the response on the streets have been overwhelming & very boosting to the mind.

I said a while ago, “Hard work pays when you are on the right lane”, & this has proven to be the case with the results I am receiving.

2016 has been an extremely interesting year, This has been turbulent for many people,  But this is why we are here as writers, our job is to turn all that negativity into something uplifting.

I think the people who hear the music from beginning to end, especially when performed LIVE, Will really feel that positive energy, Because let’s be honest, Look at what your movies & music promote today? Violence & scandal, We have been subjected to the point that the words love & truth make us cringe, We need to change our psychology, because you may find that we don’t know anything about those words until you actually live them.

Further news,  The plan is to have the album on Vinyl as well, however the album is too long to fit on a standard 12″ vinyl with the best sounding  results, But I have plans next month to remodel the vinyl, slightly increasing the size so that we can have all the tracks on there for the people.

Will keep you all updated

Meantime feel free to subscribe & sign yourselves on to the mailing list on

Keep your Ruach alive.

Love & Unity
