Hailing from the Pioneer Valley in Massachusetts, feminist folk ensemble Ruby Mack reclaim the story of Adam and Eve on their new album Devil Told Me. Named for the region’s prominent Ruby McIntosh Apple, the band imagines themselves as the descendents of an Eve deserving of eating the forbidden fruit; why shouldn’t she be able to bite into knowledge? With a sound centered around female voices intertwined and supporting one another Emma Ayres (Vocals/guitar), Abbie Duquette (bass uke), Zoe Young (guitar/vocals) and Abs Kahler (fiddle) question what it means to be a woman, and in the case of Kahler, move in and out of the label with ease, evoking a raw roots sound reminiscent of Joseph mixed with I’m With Her or The Wailin’ Jennys.
