Ruby Rose Fox has always been about more than just music. In her many years grinding in Boston before moving to Chicago, she helped lead the discussion about surviving in the local industry, earning your worth, and leveraging the resources available.
In addition to playing a wide range of venues and releasing albums, Fox has also given countless fellow artists advice to assist in their struggles, both casually and via lectures, panels, and talks. For years, she’s promised to combine those lessons into one convenient package, and as usual the singer-songwriter-instructor has delivered.
Fox’s newly released Unstoppable Performer is an online course with 80 video lessons and exercises (about four hours total) “designed for performers of all kinds (actors, musicians, public speakers, etc.) who have experienced nerves.” Tooled to help them “better understand their own nervous system,” the package offers “techniques (that really work) to overcome stage fright.”
Sounds about right; as someone who has killed it everywhere from one-woman shows to opera houses, Fox can definitely tell you how to shake the jitters. -Dig Editors
