Singer/songwriter Jools is a multi-instrumentalist with diverse influences from modern to classic, encompassing jazz, blues, latin and alt-country. Her lyrics are quirky, colourful and soul-searching. As a published writer and poet, her work has been described as ‘moody and magnificent’ by Twin Poets, London. She also writes on art history.

Malcolm is a multi-instrumentalist and composer, collaborating with Jools and playing a key role in arrangement and production. He also works on his own solo instrumental and soundtrack projects.

Together, as Ruby Muse, whether live or in the studio, Jools and Mal create a highly original rootsy blend of blues/jazz/folk/rock and alt-country – all pulled together by strong grooves to create their own distinctive brand of ‘electro-acoustic soulfood’.
