RUBY MUSE is songwriter-performers Jools and Malcolm Heyes. Based in Cambridge (UK) they create warm-hearted, perceptive alternative roots music, with intense lyrical themes, great guitar harmonies, and innovative twists that bring ambient poetry and occasional bursts of 70’s flower-power/prog-rock into the mix. Their influences are diverse – borne out by comparisons to artists as wide-ranging as Bob Dylan, Natalie Merchant, John Martyn and Lucinda Williams through to Suzanne Vega with Gerry Leonard, Morcheeba, Fleetwood Mac and even Pink Floyd – there’s something here for everyone! As well as sharing stages with and supporting top-level performers, their music has been used in award-winning film & TV dramas.
Two full-length albums have been released to good reviews: ‘rm’ (2006) and ‘Red Guitar In A Blue Room’ (2011/15), plus a series of EPs and singles. Their 2017 EP ‘Just Like You’ was rated#3 in Noizze Magazine’s TOP TEN releases of the year. Rare, potent, otherworldly and accessible – don’t miss RUBY MUSE!
