|Ruby Jane Smith when she was younger - She is now 17.|
Ruby Jane Smith has been leading a very busy mobile, on-the-road life. She is a real musician and one of those artists who knows what it means to pay those dues, hone the craft of music and walk the walk. Her poke at celebritydom through some of her material is beyond her years
She is one of those ultimate indie artists worth a listen. The music is underproduced in a nice way and is very organic. If one looks backward in time, she covered so much area and so many genres, it's not possible to pigeon hole her. Beyond playing fiddle, she has a unique distinctive voice that comfortably goes ethereal. And, she is a fine guitarist!
Her song "Wake Up" reminds me of a favorite CocoRosie song, as well a Mazzy Star song. But she is certainly not emulating anybody. She's an original.
Keeping it all tight in the family, Ruby's friend, a photographer who had never made a video before, made this one below. This is the DIY (Do It Yourself) world we now live in. Coming across Ruby Jane Smith was kind of like finding a needle in a haystack. After studying her overall body of work that goes back years, it's apparent: gems like this who are the real-deal authentic are not easy to find.
