Biography

The Blue Rubys formed out of a long lasting friendship between bass player, Vickie Hinz, and drummer, Michelle Donnelly. Having been friends and former band mates they reconnected in 2007 when they each found themselves without projects. Through mutual friends and family they connected with vocal/guitarist, Mark Neff and vocals, Nicole White. Having rather disparate backgrounds and influences each member brings different influences to the creative process. Vickie is influenced from the 60’s music of the Rolling Stones, The Beatles, and the Flying Burrito Brothers to the music of Soul Asylum and Lucinda Williams. Michelle is distinctly influenced by rock/punk from The Clash to Green Day to The Replacements, but counts Levon Helm as her hero and who loves Glen Miller and Frank Sinatra. Mark's background is squarely grounded in heavy bluegrass and country that counts Buck Owens, Dwight Yoakam and Willie Nelson to Waylon Jennings as influences. Nicole is a fan of singer/songwriters and 60s rock from Dusty Springfield to Velvet Underground. The Blue Rubys consider themselves family and they've established a fresh but familiar sound that combines elements of southern rock, bluegrass and country.
