“a retro motowny sound…fun and romantic” 
-Mostly Minnesota

Red Eye Ruby is a retro roots-rock collective based out of Minneapolis, Channeling the soulful rock sounds of Amy Winehouse and the rhythmic roots of New Orleans, their shiny collection of original music sounds classic yet very much of this time – speaking openly about abusive relationships and the reality of working as a woman in the male-dominated music industry.

Red Eye Ruby released their new singles, Sunshine & Good Lookin’,  and Burning Sunbeams, ahead of their EP release later this summer. Both songs are available on all major music streaming platforms. They finished recording their most recent EP at the Library Studio in NE Minneapolis. They released their new record on July 29th, 2022 at the Hook and Ladder Theater in Minneapolis.
