“With a splash of classic late ’70s female pop and an abundance of individuality, Ruby Moss channels the collective spirit of Stiff Records in one of the bounciest tunes you’ll hear this year” – that’s how Tony Clayton-Lea of the Irish Times described Cabra teenager Ruby Moss’s new song, ‘Pretend’.

The song is about how we are often told not to be true to our feelings, not to feel the things we feel, that things will get better when we know they won’t. How society tells us to ‘Pretend’ that we are okay. 

Ruby composed the song last year and recorded it over the summer in Beardfire studio in Dublin. The youngster wrote the lyrics and all the music, along with playing all rhythm guitar, some of the lead and all of the flute as well as providing all the vocals! 

A one-woman recording show! This is Ruby’s seventh self-penned single release since July 2021. All her songs have made it to #1 in the iTunes charts and ‘Invisible’, her first song, made it into the Irish Charts too. Ruby has been #1 several times in the Global Indie Charts. 

Along with being a gifted songwriter and musician, Ruby is an An Taisce Climate Ambassador because of the work she does to raise awareness about climate action. 

She recently played Vantastival on the Glass Room Stage and will be playing an original set on guitar and piano at Spencer Dock Dublin on Culture Night from 8-9pm, where she will be accompanied by some musical friends!
