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 as diverse as Jim Steinman, Bonnie Tyler and Pink, with a mix of R&B shining through in the music.
Coming from a musical backround, Ruby began playing piano at 14. She quickly showcased her talents by winning the Cork Teen Idol contest in 2006. Since then, she has not looked back.
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 - Sky High Radio and other radio stations have allowed for the band to progress into the new year with a positive attitude.
