Check out Ruby Throated’s Artwork

Today we’d like to introduce you to Ruby Throated.

Ruby Throated, we’d love to hear your story and how you got to where you are today both personally and as an artist.
This iteration of Ruby Throated has been together for about six years. What is unique about us is that we all crossed paths while going to school for music. Our backgrounds are very different, but we have enough common interests that we really enjoy making songs together. Between the four of us, we went to school for things ranging from classical violin to jazz studies. All of us are writers in this group.

We’d love to hear more about your art. What do you do you do and why and what do you hope others will take away from your work?
We make songs. Lyrically, they are written from the female perspective. As a result, our music gives a voice to some of the issues and situations women face in today’s world. The songs deal a lot with what it feels like to move in and out of relationships. The goal is for people to hear and see themselves in the messages of the songs, and as a result, feel a deeper connection to the people of this world. A lot of times, the lyrics feel heavy or dark, but are juxtaposed with what we feel are more lighthearted melodies and upbeat grooves. Even if the message of the song is raw or jarring, we gravitate toward having the music feel like something we would enjoy listening to at a party.

Do current events, local or global, affect your work and what you are focused on?
The role of artists must evolve as technology and society evolves. We have to work to make sure our voices are heard in this saturated social media era. What has not changed, though, is that creators are always urging their art forms into new territory due to the nature of creating itself, which causes individuals to bring new ideas into physical form. Many people during this time are feeling the urgency of being heard, or making sure that groups they care about are heard. It is no different for artists and musicians. As always, the state of the world decides the challenges that artists will face in trying to keep their art alive.

Do you have any events or exhibitions coming up? Where would one go to see more of your work? How can people support you and your artwork?
The best way people can support our music is to share it with the people they know. Our first EP, Daisies, is on all music streaming platforms. We play regularly in the Los Angeles area and post about upcoming shows on our Instagram.
