Ruby Boots’ music will stop you in your tracks. The rising Australian star, now based in Nashville TN, possesses a red wine-stained soulful voice that crackles with swagger and sorrow. Her fiercely honest lyrics strike deep into your heart while musically she delivers an alluring mix of Americana Indie-Rock. 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. She displays an artistic confidence and emotional candour that evokes her heroes like Lucinda Williams as well contemporaries such as Angel Olsen, Nikki Lane and Shovels & Rope.
“Every day I wake up hungry for it, it’s what I live for. I’m extremely excited and very fortunate to be able to do it. As each day passes I’m more and more grateful for it and it keeps growing. All these beautiful things keep happening and you realise how lucky you are – though I believe you have to create your own luck.” – Ruby Boots
