Ella Ruby is a singer-songwriter from Seattle, Washington. She was raised on rainstorms and touts an excessive love of books. The past few years have found her primarily studying ancient history, playing with clay, and getting over her exes. Ruby draws inspiration from Billie Marten, Brandi Carlile, Julie Byrne, and Shannon Lay creating a sound described as “delicate” and “focused”.
“Baths”, the new single from Ruby, doesn’t sound like water or rain in the sense that someone is trying to emulate it. The riffling and organically produced folk composition encapsulate it via themes of constant change and a rhythmic pulse as gently relentless as the winter rains of the Pacific Northwest. Keep an ear out for her debut EP, “Baby Blue”, out later this year where she recalls the intimate sounds of Big Thief and Mitski.
“I wrote baths when I was grappling with health challenges that impacted the way I thought about myself and my relationships with others. It weaves between a naive and childish longing for simplicity and a willful and wild confidence in the changing of things” says Ruby.
