Raised in a musical house in Colorado, Ruby Greenberg now breathes her mountain west upbringing into the stages and studios of Manhattan and beyond. A singer, songwriter, and performer based in NYC, Ruby fuses warm shades of folk, Americana, and jazz into her original music. She spent her early years learning multiple instruments and a diverse range of music, and grew her voice through her teen years performing in markets, festivals, and Colorado fairs. After spending these formative musical years in the red rockies, she packed up and moved to Seattle at age 18 and nearly quit music altogether. After burying herself in the literary world, she realized she craved the musical life she'd left behind. Following the call to sing, she switched coasts and attended NYC's New School Conservatory for Jazz in Manhattan. She eventually found home in songwriting, and has been recording, touring, and performing her original music ever since. Ruby recently opened for Broadway rock singer Lena Hall, won the Jazz Forum Arts vocal competition in NY, and has shared the stage as a backup singer and soloist with musicians Kate Baker, Vic Juris, Armen Paul, and Billy Harper. Her debut single "Always" was released in April.
