Track Of The Day 16/11 – Ruby Waters


Ruby Waters has a truly special voice. Her raspy delivery nods towards vintage soul and blues, with each note seeming to wholly embody her emotional self. Exuding charm on recent single ‘Open Arms’, she alerted fans to the presence of a fantastic talent, someone who was only just getting started.

New single ‘Heather’ finds Ruby Waters taking a step further. The Shelburne, Ontario draws on the full force of her artistry, the Juno-nominated songwriter adding a soulful touch to that endlessly open lyric.

Someone who wants to invite you into her world, ‘Heather’ is a feast of vivid songwriting. An Indigenous person born to two artists, creativity runs in her veins, with Ruby Waters using music as a diary-like means of expression.

‘Heather’ come straight from the heart, combined with her most potent vocal performance yet. Out now, it lands alongside a bold yet extremely simple performance clip, with Ruby Waters signing ‘Heather’ in a bathroom, surrounded by candles.
