Henry & Rupert Stansall (aka The Ruen Brothers)  began their musical careers playing in the Working Men’s clubs of Scunthorpe in Northern England at a time in life when most of us were only beginning to discover music. In the almost two decades since, their road has led them to London, Los Angeles, and finally to Brooklyn, NY, where they currently reside. In between, the duo now known as The Ruen Brothers has covered thousands of miles, playing for tens of thousands of people. Along the way, they’ve been celebrated by the BBC, signed by Dolphus Ramseur, and recorded an album with famed producer Rick Rubin.

In today’s episode, Ben speaks with Henry and Rupert about how they discovered the music that influenced their sound, the victories and losses that come with abandoning the security of home for the uncertainty of the outside world, and the lesson they’ve learned about what matters in building a successful career in music.
