Aside from a whirlwind stop in Australia last year for the 2018 ARIA awards for her nomination for ‘Best Blues and Roots Album’ it’s been a year and a half since Ruby Boots has brought her show to Australia. She has not slowed down however, she has played 200 shows around the world since her 2018 release Don’t Talk About It came out.
It’s an album of hope, breakthrough, and resilience that smolders with a fighting spirit with echoes of first wave UK power pop and jangly punk intersecting with the every(wo)man indie pop- inflected muscle, it embraces rawk riffage just as much as classic story telling lyrics. A more polished-yet-fearless, bare-knuckled self was revealed on the album and her live shows have followed suit!
