Ruby Rose Fox, is a vocal powerhouse of soul-­driven, edgy rock ‘n’ roll (with a nod to new ­wave pop), whose voice threatens to knock down the walls of any room in which she performs.

In July & August 2015 Ruby Rose Fox was both the Improper Bostonian magazine’s pick for Best Musician of 2015 in the “Boston’s Best” issue, and featured on the cover of its 2015 “ Music” issue.

Ruby also took home the “ Best Pop Artist,” and “ Best Female Vocalist” honors at the 2015 Boston Music Awards, and was named “ Female Performer of the Year,” by the 2016 New England Music Awards.

The Boston Herald describes Ruby Rose Fox’s music as “ arty, edgy rock ‘n’ roll that lets her be Lou Reed and Nico at the same time… [and seems] to come from another scene, another world.”

In April, 2015, Ruby Rose Fox embarked on a very successful tour supporting Martha Davis and The Motels promoting the release of two new singles: Blue Angel and Good Friday along the way.

On June 10th, 2015, Ruby Rose Fox was the musical guest featured in a live production of WBUR/NPR’s On Point Live! with Tom Ashbrook and Cheryl Strayed.

Following her Spring, 2015 tour with Martha Davis and the Motels, Ruby Rose Fox went back to the studio, working on a fresh album in conjunction with a Pledge Music campaign.
