EP - No Such Thing Records & Manchester Jazz Festival Originals Commission &
Performance 2022- 2023
Created originally as a new piece for 2022’s Manchester Jazz Festival Originals Commission, this release fuses electronica, keys, saxophone, guitar, accordion and male vocal to create ‘gothic jazz’.
Fountainia explores the waterways and decorative features of Manchester, and Ruby’s connection to these spaces in her home city. In this sonic dream space, huge bird people stalk canals, gargoyles drink from fountains and journeys are made to celestial pools where we swim with manatees under pink skies. Created in collaboration with artists and composers Dirty Freud, Jonoa, KINRAR and Steven Calver, this is Ruby’s second EP following Lagoons and her single Familiars in 2022.
'Ruby’s sound is as unique as it is engaging… Worthy of Danny Elfman comparisons, the mix of cavernous reverbs and haunting operatic backgrounds aids Ruby’s excellent storytelling…begs full immersion in order to experience the breadth of the artistic vision at play' NECESSARY OUTLET
'One of the most exquisite tracks you have ever heard....transports you to a celestial realm of enchantment...Prepare to be spellbound...' LOST IN THE MANOR
