Kama Ruby

Why book Kama Ruby?

Wether performing as a solo artist, backed by an accompanist, or with her band, Kama Ruby and Company, she also adheres to the notion that “Jazz isn’t just for the straight ahead folks!” by covering compositions that are hardly ever associated with jazz. She combines her love for jazz with her love for classic & alternative rock, and gives those tunes a completely different, jazzy flavor, while still maintaining the recognizable feel of the originals.

Kama Ruby

Kama Ruby is a jazz vocalist/actress/dancer originally from Bakersfield, CA. A veteran performer since she was a little girl, Kama has a lifetime of experience in musical theater, film, television, and dance. She has performed at the Utah Shakespearean Festival, the Kern Shakespeare Theater, the Rogue Fringe Festival, the Nevada Conservatory Theater, and many other venues.

She has a BA in Theater... from the California State University - Bakersfield and an MFA in Acting from the University of Nevada, Las Vegas.

Kama’s focus in the last several years has been on performing as a jazz vocalist. Gifted with a beautiful, sexy, and sultry voice, she is well versed in the standard jazz vocal repertoire. Her performances of classics such as “Cry Me a River” or “One for My Baby” display her remarkable emotional as well as vocal range.

However, whether performing as a solo artist, backed by an accompanist, or with her band, Kama Ruby and Company, she also adheres to the notion that “Jazz isn’t just for the straight ahead folks!” by covering compositions that are hardly ever associated with jazz. She combines her love for jazz with her love for classic & alternative rock, and gives those tunes a completely different, jazzy flavor, while still maintaining the recognizable feel of the originals.

As a jazz singer, she has opened for, or performed with, a variety of jazz musicians, including Tom Scott, Clayton Cameron, and Tony Galla, to name a few. She has continued her jazz education by participating in jazz clinics given by Carl Saunders, Javon Jackson, Dave Tull, Barbara Morrison, Sherry Williams, Theo Saunders, Henry Franklin, and others.

She has recently released her debut album, “Kama Ruby, Straight-up & Chilled.” A mix of jazz standards, acid jazz, classic rock, and pop tunes, the recordings capture the live feel of her performances and her unique take on familiar works.

Kama frequently performs in Central California and has appeared several times at the Bakersfield Jazz Workshop, both as a Featured Artist and a participant in the open/pro jam sessions.
