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.

I love it. Dark, smokey, the smell of whisky and wood. Sign me up I like what you're selling.

This one's for anyone who's ever felt the need to temper their anguished heart with a stiff drink of some sort. Impressive once again from Ruby, who's influences and skills belie her mere 20 years of age.
