Critically-acclaimed Métis/Slovakian singer-songwriter Ruby Waters, often praised for her unique, raspy voice, evoking the enduring talents of Janis Joplin and Amy Winehouse, has quickly garnered attention as a fast-rising indie alternative artist over the past two years. Hailing from the small town of Shelburne, Ontario, and the child of two musician parents, Waters was immersed in the world of music from the day she was born. She mixes modern tempos and catchy guitar riffs with a decidedly unrefined approach to every song she makes, maintaining a signature raw energy. Her most recent EP, If It Comes Down To It (Oct. 2020), received worldwide acclaim, and features the single “Quantum Physics”, which amassed over 3 million streams in just 6 months, setting the bar for what’s to be expected from the young, soulful artist. In the same year, Waters peaked at #5 on Canadian Alternative radio and Rock radio with the single “Supernatural”, all of which culminated in her being chosen as Spotify’s Radar Artist at the end of 2020. This year, Waters joins international best-selling artist City & Colour to open for their US tour, announces her own run of headline dates in Ontario all while landing her single, “Blow” in the top 5 at Canadian Alternative Radio. She’s already captured the attention of Billboard, CBC, and NOW Magazine, and is celebrated for her music’s moody sounds and powerhouse vocals, coupled with her honest and unapologetic lyrics. Ruby Waters is strongly positioned for a fast ascension, with no signs of slowing down.
