(she/her) - @rubyelectramusic

I'm an indie singer-songwriter with a pop obsession, drawing inspiration from queens like Lizzy McAlpine, Gracie Abrams and Holly Humberstone. I love exploring and pushing the versatility of my voice, so I love a stripped back gentle acoustic tune just as much as a powerful ballad to belt along with! I have just started out my artist journey and can't wait to see how things progress as I learn and broaden my community. My debut EP, things she left behind, is coming out in April this year.


What 5 words would you use to describe your music?
Illustrative, vulnerable, pop, folk, heartfelt

Where is your favourite spot to write/ create?
At home, specifically on my bed in my childhood room

Must have item when creating?
My recording app - who doesn't love those unhinged first draft voice notes?

Eva Cassidy, Avril Lavigne, Snow Patrol, The Wanted - a good range thanks to my parents and sisters

Who are your current biggest inspirations?
Holly Humberstone, Lizzy McAlpine and Gracie Abrams

How did you find your sound/style?
By following my voice and leaning into the tunes and notes that felt right! I was shaped by music I listen to too and am still developing my sound and style for sure.

Anyone you would like to collaborate with?
Blaire Davie, phenomenal singer songwriter in the indie scene. But if we are thinking big, Conan Gray!

Who would you love to tour with and what is your dream venue to play?
I would LOVE to tour with Lauv (lifetime fan!) and play an intimate but cool venue like PRYZM

Favourite part of a show when performing?
Playing a song that everyone knows really well, so it becomes a group performance with the crowd

Funny stories from playing a show?
Mid-song at my first ever gig, just before a big belty bridge, the music cut out… funny in hindsight, terrifying at the time!

Future goals?
To make even more musical friends and watch us all grow together

Are you working on anything at the moment?
I am releasing my debut EP very soon! And constantly writing, so it won't be too long before I record more

curtains (me) and Timeless (Miki Ratsula)

Anything else you want to add?
Please feel free to connect with me if you are a fellow musician, or like any of my music! I would love to build more relationships with like-minded people :)
