Nashville-based duo Sam & Ruby gently blend R&B, folk and pop into a sound so immediately warm and welcoming that falling in love with their debut album is a foregone conclusion. Ruby Amanfu boasts a sophisticated, soulful voice with gospel-like conviction. It beautifully complements Sam Brooker’s relaxed, confident approach, his voice balanced somewhere between the bar room and the back porch. They aim to reach both the head and the heart and a few other parts as well: ‘The Here and the Now’ will surely inspire more than a few couples to get up and dance close and slow, wherever and whenever they happen to be listening.
Listen to their single “Sarah” here and get their album The Here And Now on when it drops on August 11.
