Recommended Song: Ruby Rose Fox – Raggedy Ann
Ruby Rose Fox‘s voice is absolutely arresting in its quality. Her stratified vocal approach can make the simplest arrangement dense with emotion – and “Raggedy Ann” is the perfect example of this. The previously unreleased track has an accompanying video which approaches the song much like the twittering bright guitar that sweeps in the background – it stays out of the way – and lets Rose Fox’s voice place handcuffs on your ears as you willingly let yourself be taken away.
Ruby Rose will be performing in a few weeks down at SXSW – and she’ll be back in Town at Atwoods Tavern on 03/22/14 with Sarah Borges.
