“Such an enchanting voice and soul, love it!” – Jamal Edwards, SBTV
“Aruba Red is provocative, independent and eclectic, a breath of fresh air” – Riz Ahmed
“It’s beautiful” – NAO
After taking some breathing space from sharing her musical offerings with the world, London-based alternative soul artist Aruba Red is re-emerging with her new EP ‘Holy Waters’ featured by iTunes as number 7 in their top 10 RnB / Soul Albums category. Her unique brand of spiritual pop documents the positive energy that has come to define her.
Recent years have seen her losing her father, Jack Bruce of 1960s supergroup Cream, becoming a lone parent, and in her own words “purifying a lifetime of toxicity”. She redefines tragedy and trauma within beautifully evocative creations, fusing the mystical, sensuality, rebirth and her own candid insights into the human psyche. The stories she weaves, deal with death, birth, motherhood, the spiritual realm, self-love and breaking cycles of addiction, using all the powers the universe has to offer.
Featuring contributions from award winning composer Nitin Sawhney and Roxy Music’s Phil Manzanera, Aruba Red’s new EP Holy Waters is a musically rich, lyrically impressive celebration of strength and resurrection. Futuristic Soul with an edge, content to leave you feeling inspired and uplifted.
“Aruba Red, continuing her father’s legacy of musical excellence and lyrical honesty, delivers songs over and over that find a much-needed voice in this world of cynical sexism and ego. She delivers melody with the power of her father’s soul and the purity of a young mother’s heart. Simple musical vignettes and maternal insights that get you moving!” – Nitin Sawhney
‘Holy Waters’ is available now to purchase via Apple Music and stream via all major digital outlets.
