Acoustic guitarist Joseph Strider has covered a lot of musical ground in his career thus far. From boy soprano in school choirs, to playing with a cover band, Strider has spent the years developing his own unique style, a style that fits in no established genre and can best be described as modern Indigenous alternative.

Born in 1959 in the Los Angeles area, he now resides in Joshua Tree California. Steven is Native American Indian &  Mexican Decent from Southern California, Steven Ruiz has been interested in art as long as he can  remember. He was raised within a family of artists, including musicians and painters. As a child he spent time in his uncle’s studio, the Artist Alfred Flores 1913-1997, who was an oil painter for over 40 years.

As we fast-forward to his early thirties, the love of music and the outdoors became his passion, so it was only natural to step outside and paint what was in his heart. Many have acquired Steven Ruiz’s Landscapes, Music paintings and Wood sculptures, including corporate and private collections as well as having a Permanent display in a museum.

Along with many exhibitions under his belt, Steven has been busy with many commissions and running a new gallery in the Pomona Arts Colony. Steven has embarked on new journey’s as he has 2 albums published of his Native American Flute Music.
