Bio

“Ruby Gilbert is nothing short of a sonic enchantress. Weaving a musical alchemy of Australiana-tinged experience meets Americana-style” - Mike Honhen, Music Feeds

Ruby Gilbert embraces a moody, gothic-tinged style of song-writing. The Brisbane-based songstress is an old soul, inspired by the grittiness of Johnny Cash, whilst channelling a timeless and stylised atmosphere. Her left-of-centre phrasing is unexpected and speaks brutally honest truths. Raw and heart-breaking, her voice evokes an old-time feel, while her lyrics are both strange and endearing.

After working closely with mentor and producer, Aaron Shanahan for the past year, Ruby will be releasing her debut EP 'Dearly Beloved' in June.

There is something Johnny Cash about Gilberts music, maybe it's in her ability to create a sense of foreboding that entices you with it's charm. Whatever the deal is - it's great!

The reverb on that guitar is just heavenly. And your voice? Indescribable! You go, you good thing!

Your voice is wonderful, and all the electric guitar on this song is perfectly placed.
