In 2012 King Ru teamed up with Motley and Candice Monique forming the group “Carte Blanche”. The meaning and concept behind the name and group is like a blank cheque opening and having the power to bring anything and everything to the table, having creative freedom. The three talented pioneer solo musicians believe this tag team experience is about unity,writing quality music, proudly stretching music beyond its limitations, performing for Carte Blanche fans and having fun while doing so. They are looking forward to getting on the road with their explosive dynamic show and look forward to finishing the album. Before King Ru left for his overseas travels “Carte Blanche” performed together for the first time, leaving a real buzz about the trio around the music scene. Audiences wanting more of Carte Blanche. The second performance live streamed King Ru (Ru.CL) in London, to a Melbourne audience joining Motley and Candice Monique on stage via satellite. Since King Ru’s return to Oz the group have been writing,recording and performing as well as individually focusing on their solo careers. Class production from Jay Smith & Dutch and Billy Hoyle,”Carte Blanche” is not a group to be ignored. Like and comment on \”Carte Blanche\” fb page
