Whether playing villages in South Africa, clubs in Japan, theaters throughout Europe, with a chamber orchestra, or at Carnegie Hall, Amber Rubarth delivers "songs so strong they sound like classics from another era." (Acoustic Guitar Magazine). She has been hand-picked to open tours for songwriting legends Emmylou Harris, Kenny Loggins, Richie Havens, and Dr. Ralph Stanley and was awarded Grand Prize in NPR's Mountain Stage Contest for songwriting and performance.
Rubarth's newest album 'Wildflowers in the Graveyard' explores life, death and rebirth in nature and relationships. All songs are self-penned and recorded to 2" tape with engineer/co-producer Matt Andrews (Gillian Welch, Dave Rawlings, Dawes) in Nashville. The album's detailed and nuanced magnetic energy reveals itself with the elegance of a wildflower.
In addition to music, Rubarth made her acting debut this year starring in the upcoming feature film "American Folk," alongside folk artist Joe Purdy. The film won "Best of" at CIFF and will release January 26, 2018. She has scored and composed for films including Sundance Film Festival winner 'Joan Rivers: A Piece of Work' (with Paul Brill) and the award-winning documentary 'Desert Runners.' She is also co-founder of Brooklyn indie band The Paper Raincoat, an iTunes Indie Spotlight featured in Google and Aquafina commercials; and UK-based harmony folk trio Applewood Road, whose debut album was named The Telegraph's Best Albums of 2016.
