"Ripper puts spikes back in folk music."
Vancouver Province

" Eugene Ripper is something of a Canadian musical survivor, having started in the early eighties with Toronto punk rockers Stark Naked and the Fleshtones. Ever since then he has made his way around North America, settling down in various cities, honing his "fast folk sound." Hard-strummed acoustic folk music with the intensity of punk. His latest album, Fast Folk Underground 4.0 shows him at the top of his game "
Montreal Gazzette







Latest single "Hangman"
$0.99 @ iTunes or Amazon




" Hangman " (1 min 49 sec) was recorded in Halifax May 2014 at The Echo Chamber w/studio production team of Charles Austin and Graeme Campbell.

"Toronto's underexposed gem Eugene Ripper has been honing his unique brand of fast-folk with a punk rock ethos since the early '90s. Don't miss a chance to be transported to his noir universe."
Pop Montreal

Eugene Ripper - Punks & Pushers and Notes from the Fast Folk Underground

"Since his time in '80s punk faves Stark Naked and The Fleshtones, Eugene Ripper has transformed himself into a top-notch alt-folk singer/songwriter. His Fast Folk Underground series has had residencies in NYC, Halifax and Vancouver. His rollicking, garage-rock influenced sound is altered significantly on this thoughtful and poetically intense fifth album - lovely stuff."
New Canadian Music

"Few can turn a couple of chords into something majestic,
Ripper has the gift." Ottawa Citizen

"Volleying between punk, folk and rock Ripper jumps all over each style, stealing from one and reshaping another until he comes up
with a unique sound and vibe all his own."
