Nashville-based, Australian-born artist Ruby Boots has signed with renowned Indie-Americana US label, Bloodshot Records and to celebrate she is heading back to Australia for two intimate Album Preview Shows in Sydney and Melbourne.
Recently off the road with Nikki Lane throughout Europe and the UK, she will unveil the first single and video from her forthcoming record later this year, ahead of the albums early 2018 release. Recorded at Modern Electric Sound Recorders in Dallas, TX under the watchful eye of producer Beau Bedford (Paul Cauthen) the record features Lone Star-bred collective and studio wizards, The Texas Gentlemen as backing band.
Ruby Boots had the following to say of the signing: “After packing up my life and literally moving the furthest distance possible from Perth Western Australia to Nashville TN (fact) it's a really special chapter for me and an honour to be welcomed into the Bloodshot Records family. I have been a super fan of the label, and so many of their artists for several years, and I'm over the moon that my new record has found the right home, allowing my journey in to America, UK and Europe to continue.”
In 2015, Ruby Boots (real name Bex Chilcott) released a record entitled Solitude to budding and consistent critical approval across Australia (eventually trickling over to acknowledgement in the Unites States), including rave reviews from Rhythms Magazine, The Courier-Mail, The Age, and No Depression. Surrounding the release, her live persona and overall creative reputation as a powerful and unique voice paired with a laser-beam focused songwriting sensibility began to spread, leading her to share stages with Shakey Graves, Kris Kristofferson, Justin Townes Earle, Shovels & Rope, Nikki Lane, Tony Joe White, and many others.
