At 14 years old, Ruby Boots, real name Bex Chilcott, left a conflicted home in Perth, Western Australia to do grueling work on pearling boats, and she hasnt stopped migrating since. Her nomadic streak has taken her around the world, and eventually to Nashville, TN.
Dont Talk About It charts this drifters odyssey, tattered passport in hand. Behind her commanding and versatile voice, sharp guitar playing, and adept songwriting, Ruby Boots confidently maneuvers past the whirlwinds life has tossed on her occasionally lost highway. Its an album of hope, breakthrough, and handling the unknown challenges around the next bend.
The roads taken, the miles traveled and the voices heard during Rubys lifes trek resonate throughout Dont Talk About It. Informed as much by the wide-open landscapes of her homeland as the intimate writing circles of Nashville, the album may range far and wide but always maintains a firm sense of place. Echoes of first wave UK power pop and jangly punk intersect with the every(wo)man indie and pop-inflected muscle of Best Coast. Classic rock touchstones from T. Rex to the girl-group-wall-of-sound to personal hero Tom Petty meld with a weary poets eye recalling Hope Sandoval.
On her Bloodshot Records debut, Ruby continues to map out a polished-yet-fearless, bare-knuckled self, previously hinted at on her last album, Solitude.
LONELY LEESA takes you to the place where love has died. Then se sits at the bar stool and writes songs about it., channeling her inner Loretta and Lucinda.
