"AJC at SXSW: Atlanta acts and what the South has to say"

For others, Atlanta is synonymous with traffic, sprawl and the connecting point between flights to somewhere else.

Atwood calls the two days at the Speakeasy – or ChooseATL House — Atlanta’s Epcot Center.

Sure, there will be events to spotlight Atlanta’s cred as a tech hub, but what Atwood’s team really hopes to sell is the region’s quality of life.

Ponce City Market, the Beltline and the region’s cool neighborhoods, and food culture will be key selling points. Another major cultural touchstone will be the region’s music scene.

Groups like R City and Ruby Woo will headline parties deep into the night. - J. Scott Trubey, The AJC

"Ruby Woo's single "Can't Leave Him Alone"- Phenomz Nation Review"

Classic music meets classic style artistry! Ruby Woo and her single “Cant leave him alone” set the tone for underground Pop culture. Her style resembling a newer age, slightly more stylish Jennifer Hudson is one that is difficult to pull off and maintain but she does it well! She does a very good job of keeping her vocals in tune with the vibe of the beat, but as we listen to other tracks such as “Walk Easy” we are curious to see how far that vocal range can go. Regardless, each song we could find was a pleasure to listen and move to, looking forward to seeing more of this young lady as her career grows! - Phenomz Nation

"InCrowds authentic rock and soul"

Randy Michael is best known around town for his mastery of '60s pop musical stylings. The late-aughts band that established his name as a songwriter and guitarist, the Booze, was heralded by critics for evoking the Rolling Stones' early embrace of rhythm and blues. Michael's post-Booze musical ventures have included following the lead of Quentin Tarantino soundtracks with the group Black Linen.

Armed with a home studio equipped to record tracks in one take and a right-hand man in Black Linen bandmate Jonah Swilley, younger brother of Black Lips bassist Jared, Michael has a new vehicle for creating classic-sounding tunes in nascent production company InCrowd. This new venture finds Michael and Swilley writing songs not for their own bands, but for soul singers and seasoned jazz musicians involved for the love of music instead of immediate financial gain.

The duo has poured long nights this summer into writing and recording songs dripping with authenticity for soul singers Mattiel Brown and Ruby Woo. "Jonah and I, we do this every day," Michael says of the duo's production company. "We only focus on Black Linen when we have a show coming up. If we're not cutting a Mattiel record, we're cutting a Ruby Woo record." - Bobby Moore, Creative Loafing ATL

Still working on that hot first release.



Some would say she’s an old soul with a gift of song. Others might describe her sound as a combination of Amy Winehouse and Janelle Monae with a side of Adele. No matter how you try to define her, Pittsburg, California native Ruby Woo is a woman who walks to the beat of her own drum and is determined to have the world watch.

 Having only shared her gift with close family and friends, Ruby’s debut performance took place in church when her stepsister boldly offered her voice for a solo. “I never really shared with anyone that I could sing,” she recounts. “My step-sister was the one who volunteered me for my first solo and after that I sang all the time. Singing is just who I am. I do it because it makes me happy and I can't imagine my life without music.”

 Unable to leave any of her influences out of her music, Ruby Woo finds herself moved by the work of several legends. From Etta James’s big, raw, bluesy tone to Jessie J’s witty writing style and vocal ability, Ruby Woo also counts some of the greatest entertainers, past and present, as musical inspiration. Michael Jackson’s discipline and pursuit of perfection motivates Ruby to constantly challenge herself to become a better artist. Then there's Beyoncé. Having the privilege to witness such a successful career from the beginning, Ruby Woo admires the vocalist for her artistry and recognizes her hard work and dedication.

 No stranger to hard work and dedication, Ruby at a young age wanted to prove that she was capable of being more than a product of her environment and became extremely motivated to graduate high school. It was during this time that Ruby joined forces with several other local artists to form a rap group called Western Conference. The group’s recordings landed several local radio spins and multiple performances throughout the Bay-Area. Upon graduating, the group collectively decided to disband due to many members choosing to continue their education. During this time, Ruby attempted to put her music career on the back burner, but the call of music, proved too strong.  

 A few classes shy of a Bachelor of Science degree in Business Management from Alabama State University, Ruby made a conscience decision to move to Atlanta, Georgia to satisfy her passion for music. The leap of faith came with many trials but Ruby did not lose hope. After several modeling calls, it wasn’t until a music video audition that Ruby’s passion for singing was discovered by the casting director. From there Ruby’s daily routine quickly changed from working two jobs as a waitress and promotional model to solely working during the day and attending recording and writing sessions throughout the night with quick naps at the studio just to do it all over again. But her passion for music and commitment to her dream did not go unnoticed.

 Since, Ruby has worked hard to expand her industry resume. In addition to securing walk on rolls on BET’s The Game and We TV’s Braxton Family Values, Ruby has worked with an array of artist from rap group Travis Porter to West African artist Fode Baro. In 2013 Ruby appeared in Robin Thicke’s “Give It 2 U” video. That same year Ruby performed with Robin Thicke, 2 Chainz, Kendrick Lamar and Miley Cyrus during the MTV's Video Music Awards (VMAs) live broadcast. Always finding her way to the stage, Ruby is currently a supporting vocalist for Tyler Perry’s House of Payne cast member and recording artist Demetria McKinney. These experiences and many more have contributed to the development of Ruby's signature sound.

With her experiences as her guide and musical idols in mind, Ruby is expected to take the music industry by storm with her unique fusion of Soul, Doo-Wop, Blues and Gospel. Creating a sound which she calls Eclectic Soul; Ruby Woo is a true artist and storyteller who’s passionate about life. Although her name may be new, don’t miss the evolution that is Ruby Woo.
