Ruby is the new project from two highly experienced and versatile musicians with passion and talent that first brought them together in 2005.
Performing classics and unexpected moderns with heart and soul, Ruby combines sultry vocals and New Orleans blues piano across a broad repertoire of both famous and lesser known songs. Ruby is a pleasure to listen to and compelling to watch.
Ruby is most popular for private corporate and social functions and has the capability to tailor the set upon request.
Ofelia- Vocals Ofelia has been singing professionally since a teenager. She has a natural, distinctive voice quality and flamboyant stage persona born out of a passion for expressing life experiences through song.
Past projects have led to TV, theatre and festival appearances across the UK, Europe and America, and taken her on a journey through numerous styles that have shaped Ofelia’s voice into the versatile, dynamic and powerful signature sound she holds today.
An experienced and talented songwriter, Ofelia has penned numerous titles, released and recorded her own albums and co-written with renowned songwriters such as Chris Difford and Chaz Jankel.
Ofelia brings to Ruby, a smokey, soulful, strong and moody voice and a sensuous performance that leaves you with the feeling you’re watching something really special.
Sophie- Piano Sophie has grown up listening to and playing a wide variety of music since a child. A multi-instrumentalist, Sophie was classically trained on piano before veering off the classical path to follow a love for New Orleans Blues and Jazz.
Live performances were early on through her drummer father’s regular London-based gigs. Picking up a bass at age 14 led to playing with a Jazz orchestra and numerous original gigging bands where she often had to lie about her age to be allowed in the venues she was playing. Emigrating to Australia at 17, she had the opportunity to meet and receive mentoring from some of the great jazz, blues and rock session players on tour in Melbourne and Sydney.
Upon her return to the UK, Sophie has had the real pleasure of playing and recording two albums with the late, great Dorris Henderson and her cohorts and working with the ‘Voice of Cafe Del Mar’ Cathy Battistessa.
Working constantly in numerous corporate function bands have honed her talents and versatility playing funk and soul whilst touring and recording with heavy rock band Eyelash included TV and festival performances in the UK and Europe.
Sophie brings to Ruby the rhythm and musical influences of her heros.
