About Gemma

A Unique, Solo, Vintage Inspired Vocalist with a tone as rich as velvet and incredible range.
Singer
Okehampton
Verified profile

I have been performing since I was a young girl and more recently am manager and vocalist of what is considered by many to be the Top, close harmony trio in the South West of England. I love singing and performing and you cant help but be captured by that when I'm doing 'my thing'. I fly solo as Gemma Ruby; a unique solo, vintage vocalist performing favourites from the 1920's & 30's, 1940's & 50's to include Modern- Vintage, Jazz, Swing and Rat Pack classics, with professionalism and flair and always in appropriate costume. I am equally at home on stage in a theatre or at a festival, as I am in hotels, clubs, private residences or country gardens. You get the idea :) Whatever event you are planning, whatever the occasion, whether a wedding, birthday, charity event or just an excuse for a good old jolly, I will tailor my sets to suit your exact requirements.
