Ruby Turner has one of the greatest voices the UK has ever produced. She can breathe life into a song whether it is a passionate ballad or a soulful groove.

Born in Jamaica, Ruby moved to England when she was nine and her break came when she was taken under the wings of British blues legend Alexis Korner. Her first album, Women Hold Up Half The Sky was released to critical acclaim in 1986. This period spawned the hits If You’re Ready (Come Go With Me) and I’d Rather Go Blind and, in the American R’n’B chart, the number 1 hit single It’s Gonna Be Alright.

Ruby’s career has been sensational with major tours, film, TV and theatre appearances. A very prolific songwriter, many of her songs have been covered by artists such as Lulu, Yazz and Maxi Priest, while her voice has been employed to good effect by Brian Ferry, Mick Jagger, Steve Winwood, and Jools Holland.
