Album Notes
Ruff Life is the closing credits song for the new documentary, Operation Houston #StrayDogCity from Tom McPhee, Man Smiling Moving Pictures, and the World Animal Awareness Society & WA2S Films.

The video which has over 600,000 views at this time was filmed in the Sunnyside neighborhood of Houston, TX which is the 2nd most dangerous city in the nation. During the filming of the video and quite organically, a stray dog walked up and then the story begins. Without thinking and without doubting, Arthur adopted and named the dog, "Rita Hayworth."

Part of the proceeds from this single will go to the non-profit, World Animal Awareness Society & WA2S Films.

Yoria is a nomadic musician who has lived in Chicago, Austin, Dallas, Brooklyn, California, Colorado and is currently in Houston Texas. He has toured extensively in the U.S. as well as internationally, including Colombia, England and Italy. Live he combines guitar and vocals with a genius touch to song development. His style, good grace and calm demeanor can often get lost with his manic attention to his lyrics and song structure. Yoria has been nominated for several awards for Houston Press Music Awards and founded 12 Records, Inc. with his good friend and former Houston Rocket, Matt Maloney, currently of the band StarLine. Their song, ‘I’ll Be Here Awake’ reached #8 on the specialty radio charts. Another one of Yoria’s songs from that album, ‘Call Me’, was used in the Fox Television show The O.C. and ‘Here To Stay’ was used in the final credits of the psychological thriller film Breaking Dawn. Yoria’s work is featured on a regular basis in TV commercials for
