I am a Catholic singer-songwriter that plays guitar, piano, banjo, ukulele, and bass. I write songs about Christ, the Saints, Scripture, and God’s mercy and justice. I’ve been a missionary in Nicaragua, youth minister in Wisconsin and Minnesota. I married my wife, Calena, in 2014. We have two children, Blaise (4) and Ksenia (1). We currently reside in the Green Bay, WI. area.
As a musical artist, I try to create music that pleases God before anyone else. My goal is to give you music that communicates the truth and beauty of Jesus Christ and the Catholic Church He established on earth. I also call myself a Catholic Musician- not just Christian, which I obviously am- because I love singing not only about Jesus, but the Saints, Mary, and the history of the Church.
My first album, Pray, Hope & Don’t Worry was released in December of 2017. I am currently working on releasing three new full-length albums in the next 18 months. For more info, visit JacobRuddMusic.com/3albums
I love the Eucharist, the Rosary and the Saints. I love reading, fighting technology, playing almost every sport, spending time with my kids, and beating everyone in nerdy board games.
