Swedish Ruby Empress was formed in 2015 by Tom Serner (lead vocals), Axel Agervi (keys), Melker Petterson (guitar) and Gustav Hyllstam (drums).
Previously engaged in the dancy funk outfit Manganas Garden they wanted Ruby Empress to build a darker and deeper soundscape based on classical music and psyche. The first single Deluca, released in 2016, immediately charted #11 on Spotify's Top 50 Viral Tracks in the world, and was followed by the EP Empressionism.
May 18th, 2018, Ruby Empress released a three-piece musical adventure titled Mind Games Sessions.
Ruby Empress has announced a flow of releases for 2018, scattered throughout the year, where visual images play a big part. An album is announced for fall 2018, tentatively titled Festina Lente.
Ruby Empress music and creative universe evokes much of the 1970s spirit. It’s diverse, both in genre and in sound, and it alters current algorithms.
Ruby Empress is known for its powerful live show, described as bold and eccentric. Frontman Tom Serner said about the new release of Mind Games Sessions in May 2018: "There are many wonderful examples of diverse and unique human experiences hitting us every day, but there's also huge forces - intended or not - driving this world and its population into a vortex where there's just one direction. If nothing else, it's boring. But I think it's dangerous too”
