appphotoRufus is delighted to announce the release of his brand new official mobile app – it’ll be available for all iOS/Apple and Android devices on November 28.

The app is a one-stop-destination for all things Rufus – as close to an ‘access all areas’ fan experience as you can get. Here’s what Rufus says about it:

“I’m really excited about creating a personal relationship with my fans on a platform where I can speak freely and not be filtered – everything goes directly to the people who want to hear it, without being taken out of context.”

Never miss out on Rufus news – stream his live performance videos direct to your phone/tablet, chat with Rufus, listen to all the albums and new app-only material, access special merch offers and pre-sale tickets, message other fans in the ‘inner circle’ Rufus community and more.

“I like that you just push one button and it all appears – it’s good to have everything in one spot…all your eggs in one basket, so you can make a big omelette of Rufus!”

So, to get up close and personal with Rufus – make sure you’re signed up to the newsletter and select ‘APP’ as one of your customizable groups for the latest info here. Stay tuned for more special app news coming soon!

To Leonard Cohen on his 80th birthday.

Sep 21, 2014

Happy 80th Leonard. You have taught us all that behind the grand gestures it’s the little moments that count.

In terms of worldly things:

A cracked smile. A swift, short and kind answer. A warm blanket on a cold night out on the porch.

I will forever cherish and hold these brief but intimate times very close to my heart.
Thanks for that.

In terms of your work:

Your turning of a phrase, every time, is akin to turning towards an old friend and hitting the eternal bliss of the moment. Every time.

This, the world thanks you for.

Love Rufus.
