Ruby Jackson

Described as ‘the little black dress in your wardrobe, an instant classic,’ Sydney-based songwriter, producer and performer Ruby Jackson has positioned herself at the heart of the Australian R&B/Jazz scene.

Since completing her studies in composition at The Sydney Conservatorium of Music, Ruby has been flourishing into a world-class, authentic creator of music with songs that strike a chord with her audience. This can be traced back to November 2022, when Jackson was selected as FBi Radio’s Independent Artist of the week for her release ‘Get Around To It’, which quickly became a crowd pleaser for its smooth & classy alternative R&B touch. 

Coming from a jazz-centric background, Ruby has discovered a way to create this multi-generational vision of classic music that has a modern twist, drawing on the likes of UK R&B icons Lily Allen, Mahalia and Joy Crookes. Jackson’s authentic sound has allowed her to work alongside some of Australia’s most talented artists and songwriters like Chelsea Warner, Dean Brady, RISSA, and BOY SODA. 

2023 saw the release of Ruby’s dazzling singles ‘Out Of Fashion’ and ‘Guilty Pleasure’, securing triple j Unearthed rotation and shining industry attention on her Australian-R&B vocals that “can do anything under the sun” – Ash McGregor (triple j).

These tracks received strong support from FBi Radio, iHeartRadio, and community radio nationwide. ‘Out Of Fashion’ and ‘Guilty Pleasure’ have certainly set a vibrant, fresh and above all, exciting tone for the rest of Jackson’s unreleased catalogue of music to follow. Catch Ruby at BIGSOUND in early September, where she will be performing at 8 showcases over three days, including two of her own!
