Songstress Ruby Boots
Signs To Bloodshot Records
New Album Mooted
Australian artist, now based in Nashville, Ruby Boots has signed with Chicago label Bloodshot Records.
Recently off the road with Nikki Lane in Europe and the United Kingdom, Boots will unveil the first single and video from her forthcoming label debut soon. She will also be making her first label-related public appearance at this year’s AmericanaFest, performing at the ‘Bloodshot & Pandora Backyard Bash’ at The Groove in Nashville on Friday, September 15.
Details on the album and tour plans are still under wraps, but some information has been released. The new collection was recorded at Modern Electric Sound Recorders in Dallas, TX under the watchful eye of talented producer Beau Bedford (Paul Cauthen) and features Lone Star-bred collective and studio wizards The Texas Gentlemen as the backing band.
Boots had the following to say of the signing:
“After packing up my life and literally moving the furthest distance possible from Perth, Western Australia to Nashville, TN (fact), it’s a really special chapter for me and an honour to be welcomed into the Bloodshot Records family. I have been a superfan of the label, and so many of their artists for several years, and I’m over the moon that my new record has found the right home, allowing my journey in to America, UK and Europe to continue.”
In 2015, Boots (real name Bex Chilcott) released a record entitled Solitude to critical approval in Australia. This talented performer is now about to embark on the next phase of a highly promising career.
Bloodshot will distribute Ruby Boots’ music in North America and across western Europe, while her home label Island Records / Universal will release her music in Australia and New Zealand, and their partners will release in Eastern Europe, Asia, and more.
