As some of you may know, Ruby from the fabulous Tin Roots features on our most recent release ‘The Berlin Session’. Tin Roots are a great band that we really love so we thought we’d spread the wealth and let you in on all things Ruby!
Here’s the bands bio:
Sussex’s six piece Tin Roots play a distinctly modern reggae and ska that defies simple categorisation, but will most definitely appeal to the old school fans of the genres- as well as progressively oriented dub reggae fans. Tin Roots are a female fronted group that formed in Worthing in 2009, when college brought together old friends and new. Over the course of their 2 EPs, Tin Roots have crafted a unique sound that takes in soul, reggae, contemporary blues, dub and downbeat against hip-hop beats. Above this, vocalist Ruby Taylor glides soulfully over her band’s extensive genre mashing, her voice capable of immense power and delicate precision. Their uplifting hooks provide the ideal session for the body-movement inspiring rhythm that underpins their sound.
In the past they have played at top UK festivals such as Secret Garden Party, Green Man, Beachbreak Live Sunrise Festival, Nozstock, Shambala, One Love Festival and Ireland’s largest festival Electric Picnic. Support slots include Ninja Tune’s The Herbaliser, and in 2010 supported Finley Quaye, Chaka Demus and Pliers at Brighton’s top venue Concorde 2.
