NPR loves “her honesty and humor.” The Boston Globe says “You will leave with a crush on her.” She won 1st Place in the International Songwriting Contest (judged by Tom Waits). Over 1.6 Million MySpace listens. Toured Europe 5 times. Unsigned… Welcome to the musical world of ambeR Rubarth.
Take the timelessness of Patsy Cline. Mix in the insatiable curiosity of Socrates. Give it an edge, a roughness, refined in the spirit but raw in the performance, like someone singing in the shower. You’ll start to have an idea.
At 17-years old ambeR moved to Nevada to become a wood sculptor. 3 years later the head instructor told her the most important thing he had learned was for a person to follow their number one passion. ambeR said “Thank you, then I am quitting and doing music,” and off she went, trading her chainsaw for a guitar.
She began touring, and people took notice. Hollywood’s music magazine MUSIC CONNECTION voted her in their HOT 100 ARTISTS. Her debut CD was named TOP 10 ALBUMS OF THE YEAR (alongside Kanye West & Alicia Keys) by the Owl Mag. NPR loved her “honesty and humor.” Her musical hero TOM WAITS helped choose “Washing Day” (co-written with Adam Levy of Norah Jones’ Band) as 1ST PLACE in the INTERNATIONAL SONGWRITING COMPETITION for Lyrics. And her songs have generated OVER 1.6 MILLION PLAYS ON MYSPACE with no outside marketing or label.
