One Question Interviews: Ruby Boots

Ruby Boots

SPB: How does a musician’s politics affect your appreciation of them? Does it factor in, or can you separate the two ideas?

Ruby: I feel like using the word 'politics' as opposed to morals and values adds to the great divide that we are currently living in, I want to know where a musician stands on things like saving the planet, treating each other equally and with love and compassion, believes in equality no matter of you race, gender or sexual preference. I think that you can sit on either side of the political fence and still embrace the kind of values that work towards decent humanity. So yes, if a musician’s values work against that then it absolutely factors in because as artists we are given a voice, and make no mistake, words are more powerful than any other tool or weapon on this earth.
