In The Spotlight

Ruby Velle – “Fighter”

This Atlanta-based powerhouse soulstress has been performing her vintage-tinted soul sound for over a decade. Born in Canada, she was raised in Gainesville, Florida, where she formed her critically acclaimed band Ruby Velle & The Soulphonics in 2006. Centered around her versatile vocals, ranging from sultry soulful to vigorous funk, they’re known for their electrifying shows.

Taking her dynamic funky, southern soul and Motown-inspired style on a solo outing, her new single packs quite a punch. Although wrapped in a more contemporary coat, the fiery vein of retro soul, doused in a bit of blues, still pervades. A powerful beat, peppy piano and a touch of lively horns accompany her commanding vocals and make this a truly exhilarating groove full of attitude and moxie.
