In their home state of, rather appropriately, Western Australia, Ruby Boots are hard to put in a box. Some call it country, others call it folk, or blues or folk blues or blues country or roots, traditional or… well you get the point. The one thing that most seem to agree on that they are good and getting better at every turn. See them live and you’ll be back again. Hear the recordings once and you’ll press play a second and third time. You might say you don’t like country or whatever you think they are, but they do have that knack of growing on people pretty quickly.
 
The band’s lack of a single pigeon-hole so far is probably because they celebrate most traditional acoustic music with a touch of electric and then deliver it in a contemporary style. If you ignore the band’s hometown, it’s straight up Americana. BUT they’re not American – yep they’ve had that too.
 
So let’s start over then. Chain-gang chants and blues guitar through to western-swing and honky tonk piano, then across to folk-country and back around again. But, it’s sounding really fresh and we like to call it Twang. Singer Bex is whipping up a hoedown one minute and blowing hats off the next, with stories of a well-travelled life and the people who’ve shared it.
 
The Big Day Out, Laneway, Nukara, Boyup Brook, Bridgetown Blues, Nannup and West Coast Blues & Roots festivals are all carved into the Boots’ history, not to mention supports for Justin Townes Earle, Rev Horton Heat, Diesel, The Waifs, Oh Mercy, Wagons, Adalita, Ash Grunwald and TinPan Orange since they kicked off with their first EP launch in October 2010. Their second EP launch exactly a year later pulled over 500 happy fans cementing the rapid growth of this band in such a short time.
