Black Ruby 4 track EP



Black Ruby is an a capella band...brave enough to embrace instruments. This stood us in good stead for an early gig, way back, when the power went....we just walked into the audience and kept singing there. Now we have the added power of guitars, sax, drums and wham bam it just gets more full rich and wonderful. It might be the attack of our live gigs which keeps our energy and exhilaration....Black Ruby just keeps powering out the harmonies. We keep going back to the accapella from our early years as it weaves it’s way through our rhythms. And then it really starts as we send out the emotion and the joy.

Our pure a capella was and is a most unusual beast in Australia. The harmonies have never left and now local gigs sell out with our own sparkling music. Prepare to be dazzled as our new project is born from our well established South Australian act Little Black Dress. Shortlisted for this years Best Adelaide Fringe Music Award, our band has shot to prominence in the SA music scene.

Featuring rich harmonies, which stand as testament to their vocal past, Black Ruby’s sparkling lyrics aim to inspire, uplift and engage our audience.

We call it a vox rock, pop/rock sound as we buff up to be a jewel in the crown of the South Australian music scene.

Retaining an earthy, indie quality Black Ruby has been cut and polished to reveal a collection of heartfelt lyrical works, of which a sample can be found on their self titled EP.

We have recently played at a number of benefits for the victims of last years Victorian bush fires.

Annie Auld (Vocals, Guitar), Kay Burgmeister ( Vocals), Mel Crawford (Vocals, Woodwind) Chris Yeend (Percussion) and Tony Craddock (Vocals, Bass Guitar) have always had a keen sense of community which is reflected in their music.

Black Ruby’s original works are as radiant, rich and mysterious as their name suggests. A sparkling jewel of unequaled beauty, we aim to become a little timeless
