We had the good fortune of connecting with Ruzz Cao and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Ruzz, what makes you happy? Why?
I think music and space makes me happy. Space – I mean by time for myself, to relax, to take care of myself and to do whatever I feel like I want. I love music and I listen to it everyday. It makes me feel happy by physically and mentality.

Can you open up a bit about your work and career? We’re big fans and we’d love for our community to learn more about your work.
I love singing and making music. When i was younger, I wrote a lot of underground music in Vietnam and it’s so much fun. Making music with passion is the best feelings ever. Sometimes I got stucked because of ideas, or sometimes I sing a melody and it sounds like something familiar that I have heard somewhere but I can’t remember and at that moment I don’t know how to fix it. So sometimes it’s a challenging for me to make the decision should I leave it or continue to write. Also, when you write a song and you love it so much then when you want to write the next song, it’s actually takes awhile for you to “refresh” yourself or a time to adapt life around you – at least to me that’s how it works. I come from Vietnam, when I was there, I dont know what is Pop Jazz music. And right now, I’m trying to write Pop Jazz song to see how’s people like them. My single just released this year call ” Can’t Help My Feelings – Ruzz Cao “. I hope everyone give it a try and see how it sounds like.

Let’s say your best friend was visiting the area and you wanted to show them the best time ever. Where would you take them? Give us a little itinerary – say it was a week long trip, where would you eat, drink, visit, hang out, etc.
I think I would drive her first around Los Angeles. We can go for some signature food like In n out, or donuts or some starbucks coffees. I will bring her to Santa Monica Pier and Beach, there is so much fun stuffs that we can spend the whole day over there. Eat seafood also a good choice while going there. One of the place here that is a must to go, also Griffith Observatory and Griffith Park. The place I want to go the most is Disneyland and Universal Studios Hollywood. It would take us 2-3 days if we want to stay there for 1 night since both of them is a huge huge place. For her, I also think that she loves shopping so we would go to outdoor shopping such as The Grove in LA or Americana in Glendale.

Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
I think the two person that I feel thankful the most is my mom and my boyfriend. They always by my side whenever I need them the most. They support me in anyway, even though sometimes i fail but they are still there for me and help me stand up to walk forward. I feel lucky to have them!
