You could say that in order to be a successful musician, you also need to be an entrepreneur. And, no one embodies that more than Nick Ruffini.
Born and bred in the suburbs of Philadelphia, Nick began playing drums at 15 while simultaneously helping to run his family’s restaurant business. Over the years, the combination of music and entrepreneurship proved to be a powerful lifestyle and it stuck. Nick has been a professional drummer since 2001, touring nationally with multiple artists while managing a successful solo career that yielded a top-50 record. His experience in the music industry eventually led him to the business side with multiple roles, including artist management, booking, talent buying and artist relations.
In 2013, Nick recognized an opportunity to provide content for drummers and launched Drummer’s Resource, an online community and podcast where he provides weekly interviews with the world’s greatest drummers and music industry professionals. With hundreds of thousands of downloads and website views per month, Drummer’s Resource has been a trailblazer in the podcast revolution in the drumming world.
Nick is armed with a true passion for music on both the artistic side and the business side. He is a champion of anyone who creates music – from musicians, producers and engineers behind the music to the industry leaders who help bring it to market. With deep industry knowledge and endless enthusiasm Nick continues to build Drummers Resource as well as Revoice Media, an entertainment media company he co-founded in 2016.
