Ruby recently had the pleasure of singing vocals on two songs on the upcoming album of Daniel Powter. Most know Powter for his Billboard #1 charted hit, “Bad Day“. The new album is being produced by Better Than Ezra’s Kevin Griffin and engineered by Ethan Allen (Sheryl Crow, Black Rebel Motorcycle Club, The 88).
I loved singing this song on Jack White’s album, Lazaretto. It was my favorite personal performance. Scout does a pretty good job of lip syncing my vocals for this video, though!;) xx
I am so in love with this song…and so honoured to be sharing musical breaths with the one and only Michael Logen on this one. x

Ruby joins Norah Jones, Jason Isbell, Karen Elson and many more to pay a tribute to the legend that is Bob Dylan. Rolling Stone magazine has a great feature here.
The few times performers did stray from Dylan’s Sixties and Seventies catalog, it was done to great effect. Ruby Amanfu’s naked, cathartic take on “Not Dark Yet” from Time Out of Mind received the largest applause of the evening, while actor Lukas Hass teamed up with Black Keys drummer Patrick Carney and Dhani Harrison for a rousing take on the Traveling Willburys‘ 1988 song “Congratulations.”
On November 11 & November 12 Ruby will join her musical colleagues for a two night tribute to Bob Dylan, hosted by The Best Fest and The Cabin Down Below Band. Ruby’s last participation in Dylan Fest was this past August in Dublin, Ireland. New York City’s show will surely be one not to miss!
100% proceeds of the door go to Sweet Relief Musicians Fund.
