Ruby Ivy is an up-and-coming singer-songwriter from Cork, Ireland. Not too long ago, she released a heartfelt neo-soul tune, entitled, “Evergreen.”
Ruby Ivy – “Evergreen” single
“I know that I do not deserve your heart of gold. Deal me a royal flush and then I’ll fold up. ‘Cause every time I close my eyes, I just see the end in sight. And I know your brittle heart and my mind are entangled. And I can fall at your feet but then I’ll vanish. I’ll be gone before we make it. Is it better to let this go ‘cause I’ve been here before? I’ll burn your heart out like it’s nothing more. And I’ve always kept one eye on that neon exit light waiting for my chance to go.” – lyrics
‘Evergreen’ tells an intriguing tale about a pessimistic young woman who feels sorry that she can’t be the one that her significant other needs. Apparently, she fears going steady or being in a permanent, committed relationship because she changes like the seasons. Later, she tells her companion, “I’m shallow, and I know that my indifference, it hurts you. I know my independence means I’m cursed too. And little by little, you’re seeing I’m somebody love does not believe in.”
‘Evergreen’ contains a relatable narrative, ear-pleasing vocals, and tuneful melodies that will resonate well with fans of Snoh Aalegra, Sinead Harnett, and Jorja Smith. The likable tune possesses melodic instrumentation flavored with indie-R&B and neo-soul elements. Furthermore, “Evergreen” serves as a tasty appetizer to what listeners can expect to hear from Ruby Ivy in the near future as she continues to release new music.
“‘Cause every time I close my eyes, I just see the end in sight.”
“Something I tend to struggle with is how my feelings fluctuate in relationships. This song is an apology to my constant ‘Evergreen’ lover.” – Ruby Ivy explained
Homegrown heroin of the Emerald Isle, Ruby Ivy stands tall beside her contemporaries. Her earliest musical memory is being in her mother’s arms dancing around the kitchen to Aretha Franklin’s “Say a Little Prayer.” The Fugees, Lauryn Hill, lots of jazz, soul, and Stevie Wonder are enduring influences.
Leaving BIMM Institute with first-class honors, Ruby has since performed at the likes of Wembley Arena and Shepherd’s Bush Empire with artists including the legendary Ronnie Spector of Ronettes fame and JP Cooper.
