His father played a key role in kick-starting his music career, playing a demo of Ruel performing on the song, Let It Go, by James Bay, to Flagrant. Flagrant was impressed by Ruel, and he, in turn, forwarded the demo to artist Mark Landon, a.k.a M-Phazes.

After that, both Flagrant and M-Phazes trained Ruel. And in April 2017, Ruel and M-Phazes collaborated for the song, Golden Years. The singer also released his song, Don't Tell Me (first song written at the age of twelve), in 2017, which held the 86th spot on the ARIA Chart

The same year, in September, Elton John played Ruel’s track, Don’t Tell Me, on BBC Radio 1, which made Ruel more popular among the mass. 

The singer then collaborated with Khalid in November 2017 on his American Teen Tour for Australia and New Zealand.
