With a sound that is as dazzling as it is heartfelt, Ruely is the project of 22-year-old Trevor Whitney, the triple threat talent hailing from Puyallup, Washington. A singer, songwriter, and producer, Whitney’s passion to create music with a purpose is evident in both his emotionally rich compositions and his empathetic lyrics. Whitney hopes to provide a listening experience that both capitalizes on emotional reflection and brings forth interpersonal growth. Many of Whitney’s works are motivated by the hardships of humanity, seeking to lend a helping hand to those coping with tragedy, struggling with mental illness, or to simply lift someone up on a bad day. If anything, Whitney’s music strives to inspire hope in those who need it most. The overarching theme of Whitney’s discography truly demonstrates his belief that music creation should be inspired by the way you feel, rather than by the demand for a certain kind of song.
Whitney’s fervor for music began at a young age, with the name ‘Ruely’ nostalgically inspired by a childhood nickname his mother gave him.
