Hailing from the mighty Midlands, at age 18 indie soul singer/songwriter & recording artist Ruby J fuses multiple genres with her own unique style. In 2020 Paloma Faith said "Ruby J is that unique voice."
2022 saw Ruby J make her major UK festival debut at The Isle of Wight Festival, and Manchester's biggest multi-venue indoor festival Neighbourhood. In addition to this she has secured support slots with indie darlings The K's, Red Rum Club and has shared the stage with Liverpudlian folk rock legend Jamie Webster.
Ruby's unique tone has led to early bold comparisons to Amy Winehouse, Macy Gray and Tina Turner, with her influences ranging Billie Holiday to Alex Turner and Poalo Nutini. Inspired to pick up a guitar at age 13 by the likes of Tash Sultana and Arctic Monkeys, a now 18 year old Ruby J has honed her live performance and her dynamic stage presence time and time again encapsulates and captivates audiences.
