Ruby Gilbert

Ruby draws inspiration from short-lived love affairs, imagined yearnings, betrayal. She speaks of the lonely and cynical side of heart break that no-one likes to speak of or ever thinks to write about. She captures and vocalises feelings and emotions that make her lyrics deeply relatable. Tales of hardship, woe and lost love. Murder ballads that she insists are fiction. Ruby’s newest release embraces a moody and gothic-tinged style of song-writing. Inspired by the grittiness of Johnny Cash, whilst channelling the timeless and stylised atmosphere of Lana Del Rey, her left-of-centre phrasing is both 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.
