Another local favorite playing AthFest this year is Ruby the Rabbitfoot, whose keen and dreamy voice propelled her sophomore album New As Dew on Normaltown Records to great reviews, including a seven on PopMatters and was termed the “perfect soundtrack for spring” by Flagpole'. Ruby is known for mixing her light and flowing sound with cutting, impressive lyrics. She’s threaded with her influences, from Southern flora and fauna to Fiona Apple. She has transformed from a college student dipping her toes in the water to a full-fledged artist. Her tracks are deeply personal storytelling pieces. Don’t let the muted quality to the music fool you, Ruby the Rabbitfoot has come into her own confidence and folk-tinged flair.
Recently, Ruby performed a divinely intimate set for Sofar Sounds Dallas, where her gentle tones and softly strummed guitar melded with the low-key intimacy of the venue. Check out her performance of “Misery” here:
