Ruby Ross Official Site

Folk / Americana / Singer-Songwriter

Ruby Ross is a New Orleans-based singer-songwriter whose writing and vocal style draw heavily on her Appalachian Virginia roots. With "emotional and unpretentious vocals" and "tunes that recall feminine folk icons like Joni Mitchell and Joan Baez" (C-VILLE Weekly), Ross crafts poignant stories of life, longing and love, set to melodies that refuse to leave your head.  

With the release of her EP Solid Ground and inclusion of her song "Night's Lullaby" on Buffa's Lounge's Live From the Back Room, Vol. 1: And so It Begins (a live-recorded New Orleans songwriter compilation CD) in October 2013, and a first place win at the Bay Saint Louis ArtsAlive Singer-Songwriter Showcase in March 2014, Ross is emerging as a fresh new face in Americana folk music that you don't want to miss.

Solid Ground

by Ruby Ross

Ruby Ross' debut EP, Solid Ground (released October 15th, 2013), combines poignant lyrics and plaintive vocals layered with Appalachian-rooted acoustic guitar, banjo and mandolin for an Americana folk sound with a country flair. Ranging from the heartbroken (2,226 Miles) to the mysterious (Night's Lullaby), this little EP packs a concentrated songwriting punch.
