Welcome to the home of Mike Rufo's music, featuring the recently released CD - Nothin' But Now - songs from his 2012 CD - Streets of Plenty, videos, show updates, new releases, and his popular civil liberties parody -  Spyin' Eyes.

Vents Magazine - "While some new acts are all about blending different genres together in the search of a new sound, ...[Mike Rufo] is trying to bring back the pure days of folk music with its melodic and harmonious music reminiscent of acts such as Leonard Cohen, Simon & Garfunkel with some Beach Boys hints. Nothin’ But Now sees Rufo showcasing his continued growth as an artist while crafting a fresh modern sound that is entirely his own."

I've had an incredible experience releasing Nothin' But Nowplaying tons of shows, and having the pleasure of performing with so many great artists and for so many great causes, thank you everyone for being a part of these shows! 

I was thrilled to open for and accompany 2016 NPR Tiny Desk winner, Gaelynn Lea, at Al's Den in Portland in October - she is an amazing artist and human being - what a blast!  We also played three great shows together in Southern California in February.

I am also producing a house concert series at my place which has been going fantastically.  I've hosted and opened for some great performers including Graham Patzner, Madeline Tasquin, and LightWorkers Union.  On July 21st I'll be featuring my good friends Heart Hunters from Atlanta, stay tuned!

In 2017, I was delighted to co-produce two Folk Fights Back shows which raised funds for the Ella Baker Center and Pacific Center for Human Growth.  Below I was punchy pleased to perform Darling Corey with the unbelievable talented fiddle master Brandon Godman and his bluegrass band (with my No Exit band mate, David Johnson, on the high harmony)!
