If anyone can silence a room, it’s South Africa-born, Melbourne-based Ruby Gill, whose arresting lyricism and deadpan wit have already garnered her millions of streams, awards and radio play from every major metro station in Australia, to BBC6Music and KCRW over the pond. Known to bring even the most stoic to tears with profound reflections on society and self-awareness, Ruby’s “melancholic lyrical wizardry” has earned her the reputation of unmissable, with accolades such as as Sunday Times’ Breaking Act (UK), nominations for The Australian Music Prize (Mercury equivalent) and Best Folk Work at the Music Victoria Awards, with high praise from NME, CLASH, The Independent and more. Ruby’s long-awaited debut LP ‘I’m gonna die with this frown on my face’ is out now, packed with what critics are calling an “interrogation of social norms and [the] pressures of living out one’s young adulthood on a burning planet amid a postcolonial, neoliberal shitheap.” KCRW calls her recent work “Calm and resolute, but the force and power behind it is undeniable.”
