The rising Australian star, now based in Nashville TN and signed with Universal Music, possesses a red wine-stained soulful voice that crackles with swagger and sorrow.
Her fiercely honest lyrics strike deep into your heart while her music delivers an alluring mix of Americana, Rock, Folk and Blues.
Leaving home at a young age, to work on pearling boats, is where she found the distance, space and time needed to hone her songwriting skills.
Her first full-length, ‘Solitude’ has been hailed as “a landmark Australian release” and a “world-class debut,” while scoring her a Song of The Year award for lead single, ’Wrap Me In A Fever.’ The ten tunes that populate ‘Solitude’ wrestle with universal themes filtered through Ruby’s captivating combination of vulnerability and strength. She displays an artistic confidence and emotional candour that evokes her heroes like Lucinda Williams as well as such Americana contemporaries as Nikki Lane and Shovels & Rope.
Recently named as an ‘Americana Festival 2016 Showcasing Artist to Watch’ by renowned US magazine, American Songwriter. Ruby releases her second album later this year, authentically produced by Beau Bedford (Paul Cauthen / The Texas Gentlemen). This summer Ruby will tour the UK with kindred country revivalist Nikki Lane on the Highway Queen Tour.
