Margate teenager Ruby Tipple will release her first single  and her debut EP next month with Tonetic Records.

The 17-year-old creates introspective acoustic ballads using her biting poetry alongside instrumentation.

Ruby is a singer and songwriter who wrote her first original song, ‘Pour’, last summer at Arts Education Exchanges’ SoundEscapes programme.

Since then she has been writing and recording her first cut of tracks at Margate’s Tonetic Studio, exploring how lyrical themes of the natural world around us, different song structures and the components of her instrumentation can elevate her songs.

She releases single Bitter of September 7 and her EP All the Days on September 21.

Ruby said: “Bitter is inspired by heartbreak, loss, and the loneliness of losing someone who you felt mattered.

“‘With Bitter, I’m marking my place in the world in the song; it’s my way of letting people know that my viewpoint matters as much as anyone else’s. With this, I feel like Bitter can relate to many of us, wishing that suffering would be given space to simply exist.”

Bitter is the lead single from Ruby’s EP, which will be accompanied by second single Puzzle Pieces, releasing on September 14.
