Ruby Moss is a 14 year old, living in Cabra. Ruby’s musical career began in St Patrick’s Cathedral Choir School when she was 8. She plays piano, flute, guitar, button accordion and has been awarded a prestigious organ scholarship with Dundalk Grammar School.
Ruby wrote Ruby’s Song/Invisible last September when she was struggling to fit in on starting secondary school. It was recorded in one take as part of an U16 programme in Crookedwood Studios in Slane. It went to Number 1 in the iTunes charts the week of its release, the week of Ruby’s 14th birthday and is still Number 1 in the singer songwriter charts in Reverbnation.
Shades of Grey was written, recorded and co-produced by Ruby in July of this year two weeks before her 14th birthday in Crookedwood Studios in Slane and released on digital platforms on Wednesday 8th September.
It deals with the theme of frustrating conversations with people who see things in black and white and don’t like change. Ruby was thinking about climate change and conversations around that when she wrote it but it could apply to so many themes. The initial concept and first two lines resulted from a frustrating conversation about musical genre. It went to Number 1 in the iTunes singer songwriter chart the day of its release.
Both of Ruby’s songs are being sold in aid of GoVeganWorld and Jigsaw for Youth Mental Health.
