RUBY AMANFU RANKED AMONG TOP PERFORMERS AT DYLAN FEST AT RYMAN AUDITORIUM
On the Lemonade track, “Don’t Hurt Yourself,” Jack White’s guitar and raspy voice is readily recognizable, but check the credits to discover that the operatic oohs and aahs in the background weren’t Beyonce — they were talented Nashville singer Ruby Amanfu.

“Two years ago, Ruby Amanfu stole the show at Bob Fest with her stripped-down performance of Dylan’s “Not Dark Yet.” Amanfu once again became one of the stars of a Best Fest tribute when she performed a forceful, self-assured rendition of the On the Beach deep cut “For the Turnstiles” at Neil Fest. Amanfu reimagined the song, performed originally with only a banjo and a squeaky, voice-cracking vocal take from Young, as a soaring, gospel-infused R&B ballad.” – Jonathan Bernstein | Rolling Stone

Watch Ruby’s performance of “For the Turnstiles” at Neil Fest at The Bowery Ballroom NYC September 14, 2015:
“The main attraction of Standing Still is Ruby’s stellar vocals. Even when singing slowly and softly like on the track “Street Lights,” her voice is delightfully powerful. Throughout the whole album her vocals are able to stand almost by themselves without much distraction from the backing instrumentals that really only serve as a highlight to Ruby’s singing. The natural rhythm that comes from Ruby’s soulful delivery is incredibly easy to listen to.” – Jon Jones | mxdwn
