A band gifted with purpose and considerable powers, Camp Cope are one of the most talked about acts of 2018. Ladling out a distinctive soup of jagged, rolling guitars, crashing drums and the vocal intricacies of front-woman Georgia Maq, their album debuted in the Australian Top 40 chart, won multiple end-of-year awards, earned universally positive reviews and locked them in for a huge future. A fearless focal point, Maq’s intense lyrical talents hold up a mirror to modern life; lending a debt touch to topics like mental illness, politics, womanhood, love and growing up in suburban Australia. There are very few bands around these days with the bravery and raw energy of Camp Cope.
Given her first guitar for Christmas, self-identified 'average chick' Ruby spent hours learning how to play via YouTube videos. When she was 14, she snuck into areas in Cronulla to understand the music and art culture in her neighbourhood in areas outside her age group's local hangouts. During this time, she featured her visual art in an underage exhibition at local gallery Space 44 and started playing shows around Sydney. When she found substance and relatable qualities in the music she listened to, Ruby found herself gradually writing and creating her own music within that time.
Influenced by artists such as Methyl Ethel, Courtney Barnett, Alex Lahey & Camp Cope, Ruby branches out into her own individuality with her lyrical style and perception into the shows she watches, the people she sees and the community she grew up in. First single 'I Want' is about the concept of a Japanese anime tv show with a schoolgirl that tackles day-to-day issues like crushes & school work by day and becomes a warrior princess by night. While managing to learn how to balance the two, she learns to become more than people's expectations of her and judge her own expectations of herself.
