Episode 195 - Ruby James

May 31st, 2011 · Comments

Ruby burst onto the music scene as a solo artist in 2006 with the release of her EP Sweet as Sin, immediately captivating critics and crowds, with moxie and sophistication and a kick ass stage show, leaving a swarm of heady fans in her wake. Her sultry yet sweet voice tempted, teased and rocked premiere venues from Central Park in New York City, Hard Rock Live, Austin's Continental to LA's Viper Room and The Whiskey. Whether it be on her own or sharing stages with Jackson Browne, Jane Weidlin, Soul Asylum, 7Mary3, War and Fastball, Ruby James is often compared to legendary icons Stevie Nicks, Sheryl Crow and Chrissy Hynde. Humbly aware, she is committed to and succeeding at blazing her own unique trail through modern rock.
