Isle of Wight singer-songwriter, Ruby, has released her debut single in memory of her late grandfather.

Titled Christmas Time, the song’s lyrics were written 50 years ago by Ruby’s dad, Simon Bodenham, and grandad, Victor Bodenham -  the latter of whom died of cancer before Ruby was born. 

The single was recorded at Platform One alongside guitarist and bassist Dan Ashdown and drummer Ethan Cripps.

Speaking about her debut release, Ruby said: “It means a lot that, after hearing this song my whole life, I can be the voice to bring it to life. It’s an honour to be honest!”

Additionally this December, Ruby has been recording and sharing a cover of a classic Christmas song for each day of advent.

Already, she has covered songs including Last Christmas by WHAM and Do They Know It’s Christmas? by Band Aid. 

Christmas Time can be streamed on Spotify and YouTube.
