Rubedo is the audible  manifestation of life streaming through the psyche of its members. This is the alchemy of transgressive synth rock.

Their name, pronounced rue-BAY-DOUGH, refers to a concept in alchemy. And while possessing serious technical chops as musicians, Gregg Ziemba, Kyle Gray and Alex Trujillo take their music in a decidedly fun direction, crafting strange pop songs informed by a kind of prog rock sensibility – not in a stilted, overthought manner but in a loose, even playful way without making a joke of the music.

Following their 2010 debut EP Lapis Sephorum, Rubedo connected with the late genius Isaiah “Ikey” Owens (keyboardist for The Mars Volta, Jack White) who produced the group’s two full-length albums, 2012′s Massa Confusa and 2014′s Love Is The Answer. Thanks to the affability of its members, Rubedo has fallen into some fortuitous opportunities such as a month-long stint playing at Denver International Airport, putting together Blackboard Music Festival in downtown Denver and becoming the unofficial house band for the now-defunct, much-beloved DIY venue Unit E. Rubedo’s connections have also helped the band independently book national touring gigs.

With a completely unaffected and positive spirit to its shows, Rubedo is instantly likable performing its imaginative songs.
