"A remarkably impressive debut single," Chris Hawkins BBC Radio 6

Recorded at the Cheese and Grain Studio in Frome, 

"The Charlatans review - still masters of the feelgood groove ... the most startling moment arrived when Ruby Darbyshire, singer/songwriter, guested on bagpipes during Oh! Vanity"

At Wiltshire Music Centre Bradford Roots

"The showstopper though, and it’s a big show to stop, came from Ruby Darbyshire… with just the right balance of originals and covers she held us in awe. Sinéad O’Connor, Dylan and Springsteen… she nailed them all and made them her own. Simply, wow!"  - Devizine

"But the crowd are in constant high spirits, peaking when the bagpipe player and support act Ruby Darbyshire joins the band for an encore"

"Ruby Darbyshire, played 2 sold out gigs at the Barrowlands, berfore her new single was played on BBC 6. ...The single was made possible by the support of THe Charlatans lead singer, Tim Burgess, who spotted Ruby performing at Kendal Calling Festival."

"Her live studio recording is a four track EP, acoustic folk originals, titled Don’t Give Up Now, We’re Nearly There, and it’s something you simply MUST listen to." Darren Worrow

Ruby's first performance was standing on a street bollard at the Edingburgh Fringe Festival, playing harmonica at the age of 4. Following which, she went out most weekends finding her voice and playing guitar, busking and raising money for Save the Children. Inspired and being homeschooled, she was able to circumnavigate the planet performing in many different countries. 

Now at college studying music, at the age of 17, Ruby is a multi-instrumentalist branching out from being a Highland Bagpipe player, now a singer-songwriter supported and encouraged by some influential names and is passionate in all her endeavours.
