John Reuben on his 6th Gotee release: 'This album is full of many questions that I have been struggling with over the past few years,' explains Reuben. 'It felt often like there was a tension. Artistry, career and faith seemed to be standing at odds wlth one another. Sex, Drugs and Self-Control is really about basic questions. Questions like 'Am I talking about honesty more than I'm actually being honest?' Everything seems to come back to these questions and trying to understand how art and faith can work together.' The son of a Christian Death Metal Record Label owner, John Reuben was raised in a trailer park on a farm that doubled as a church/outreach program for troubled youth. By the age of 18 he had started his own Indie Label, and released several ep's recorded by himself and other artists. Just before his 19th birthday, John packed up his recording gear and moved to Hollywood where he survived by doing extra work for movies and television.
