Ruby & The Revelators are a 5 piece band hailing from Sussex, fronted by the magnetic and captivating singer Olivia Stevens (aka Ruby Tiger) renowned for her effervescent and passionate performances. They are taking the 'blues' genre and giving it a good 'ole shake, eschewing rocky blues, and not a standard 12 bar blues in sight. Instead they mix it up with stax era soul grooves and display a modern sensibility for songwriting, resulting in a fresh and original sound, that crosses effortlessly from jazz to blues to funky soul and torch song balladry. This is a band that have slowly but surely been building momentum whilst finessing a unique sound to add into the UK blues mix!
Ruby had a serendipitous route into singing via what she now calls her ‘rabbit foot’ pub The Fountain in Chichester. This is where she eventually met acoustic blues troubadour King Rollo, who would become a massive influence on her career and nurture her to become the artist she is today, encouraging her to form her own band in 2014. Working closely with friend and co-writer Louise Maggs (lead guitarist) they have always looked to expand the ‘blues’ palette resuting in a breath of fresh air within UK blues and soul…miss them at your peril!!
