Ruby Spilsbury is the heart and soul behind Ruby and The Night Hawks. The Cork City based singer, songwriter and pianist hosts an eclectic mix of influences giving the music such diversity. Coming from a musical background, Ruby began playing piano at 14. She quickly showcased her talents by winning 1st place @ The Cork Teen Idol competition back in 2006.
Ruby continues to work hard with her band ‘The Night Hawks’. An extensive catalog of original songs are regularly highlighted along with her full band in the live setting. The Night Hawks present us with rock fueled tracks such as ‘The Music Box’, ‘Those were the days” and the creation of ‘Get Me’ allow us to understand just how much power and emotion can be captured in a song.
Ruby & The Night Hawks have received extensive airplay on both a local, national and international level. Several interviews/airplay with Australian radio station Bondi Tunes, internet based radio station – Red Fm and other radio stations have allowed for the band to progress into the new year with a positive attitude.
