In her first record to be released on Island Records Australia Ruby Boots has created a body of work which explores a wide emotional range in an intriguing country/rock blend.

Sonically Ruby Boots is quite obviously a country artist but that shouldn’t drive non-country fans away as she also incorporates pop and rock elements. Opening track It’s So Cool and title track Don’t Talk About It are prime examples of how well this is done throughout the record.

With this being Ruby’s second full length album the confidence and self-assuredness is much more clear in this record. This allows Ruby to explore emotional areas, particularly heartbreak, in great depth whilst maintaining captivating hooks for new listeners to the genre.
