Since the year 2000, Crown Ruler has continually championed quality and innovation in music, working with artists from at home and around the globe. Between acts like soul-jazz icon Roy Ayers, Detroit house/techno godfather Theo Parrish, legendary turntablist/beat junkie J-Rocc and Chicago house luminary Larry Heard, the Crown Ruler name has become synonymous with soulful underground music.
Over the past few years, Crown Ruler’s collaboration with the Red Bull Music in Australia has seen a groundbreaking series of music events come to fruition – just one of Crown Ruler’s many auspicious relationships with brands, venues, festivals and special events.
Our self-made festival Freedom Time has just seen it’s 6th appearance at Coburg Velodrome for another successful year of winter and summer events, always featuring Australian debut performances to ensure exciting and educational programming for their unique and intelligent audiences.
Our skills have also extended into venue booking, having filled the event calendars at Boney, Revolver Upstairs and Prince Bandroom, along with numerous residencies at bars all over Melbourne including Whitehart, Section 8, Dr. Morse, Ferdydurke, FiftyFive & more, bringing music events, workshops and improvisation series’ to any space they get into. Crown Ruler’s curation brought Melbourne Music Week Hub to life in 2013, spread RBMA Weekender Festival across Sydney’s most prestigious stages and filled Melbourne University’s gardens for 2 day-long throw downs at it’s Shimmerlands summer activation.
2018 marks Crown Ruler’s 18th year as a touring agency, event production company, artist booking roster and record label that aims to educate, move and unite Australian audiences with soulful underground music, with many more jams to come.
