Sure, there's a cynical cultural tendency to make certain assumptions when you hear the word "gun" associated with rap music, but this seven-member live hip-hop band from Ithaca, NY, runs contrary to that image with their positive message and uplifting performances.

Tim Ruffo has been influenced by a variety of Outlaw Country icons such as Waylon Jennings and Johnny Cash. He also found inspiration from Pink Floyd, Johnny Winter and the Rolling Stones. Growing up listening to his mother playing guitar and singing old country songs around a campfire, Tim had first hand exposure to music as an outlet and expression of life, whether it is during hard times or times to party hard. Tim left home at 16 years old, joining the Air Force. He traveled all the way to Alaska, meeting people and making memories, he learned how to live hard, work hard and play hard.
