NEXT GIG  9 Nov 2015 Poets & Songwriters Session, Carpenters Arms, Cambridge UK – 8:30pm start


Malcolm & Jools Heyes are musicians, songwriters and composers currently recording and performing as RUBY MUSE. Their diverse musical influences combine to produce a contemporary mix of alt-blues/rock with touches of darkly sparkling Brit-Americana sprinkled with touches of ’70s flower-power and prog-dust. Jools and Malcolm’s songs are unique and have aired on radio, TV and internet across the world.  ‘Classy, cool & compelling’, Kontra Roots.

Two albums are available through iTunes, Amazon and CD Baby; Ruby Muse ‘rm’ (2006) and Ruby Muse Red Guitar In A Blue Room (2011), both  with excellent reviews – and the first of a series of limited edition EPs is currently in the wings.

‘Yum!… Lovin’ this… had a feeling from the first few chords that this was something special.’ TAXI A&R
