Great Southern Nights present…
Ruby Fields @ Great Southern Nights, Eltham Hotel
Hailing from the suburbs of Sydney’s South Coast, Ruby Fields is an Australian singer-songwriter who creates narratives that people feel a close connection to. Her use of simplistic but poignant lyrics in her work has garnered the attention of the international music industry and fans alike.
Combining indie rock chords with punk rock delicacy and delivery, it is easy to see why people started paying attention back in 2017 when she was played on triple j the same day that she uploaded her debut single “I Want” to Unearthed.
Since then, Ruby Fields has sold out multiple national tours, she’s performed to 20,000 people at Splendour In The Grass in 2019, toured the UK, performed a coveted Like A Version for triple j, and has been courted by labels in the US. More recently, her debut album "Been Doin' It For A Bit" debuted at #1 on the ARIA Album charts to be out the likes of Drake and Lil Nas X. For Ruby, lyrics have always been a major driver of her music. Fans the world over have obsessed over her lyrics due to how relatable and stirring her songs are.
The album see's Ruby take her passion for musical and self-exploration even further. This burgeoning singer-songwriter faces the deeper and darker facets of herself as she becomes more self-aware with this debut long player. The album was written largely from her farmhouse on a cliff edge within a Sydney national park after a soul-searching expedition to Nepal, and was recorded in Victoria, Byron Bay in NSW and in New Zealand. True to Ruby Fields’ style, it’s full of relatable anecdotes, festival mosh-worthy moments, escapism and humour, but also features previously unrevealed moments that divulge an entirely new side of Ruby Fields.
