Music Video: Roo - Pictures
Roo (Roo Savill) has one of those voices. The kind of voice that compels you stop what you are doing and listen. Imbued with the alluring essesnce and timeless appeal of the classic soulstresses, yet with a distinctive heart-and-soul authenticity that is all her own, Roo's voice is awash with the kind of smoky hues and husky sensitivities that lend an absorbing poignance to the emotional sophistication and subtle inflections of her maturely soulful delivery. With the kind of voice that in its honesty and unfiltered emotion can equally break your heart or make you smile, here Roo reflects on the enduring power of memory - both of the shutter and the heart - in the face of the inexorable march of life's emotinal tides and seasons with 'Pictures'.
To say Roo's life is music would be an understatement. The U.K. singer/writer/producer grew up with an affinity and respect for legends like Ella Fitzgerald, Nina Simone, Billie Holiday, Janis Joplin, Carole King and Amy Winehouse and is well regarded and highly respected as a singer on the London music scene - she hosts the 'Ruby Sings' showcase at the legendary Ronnie Scott's - and is also a session vocalist/writer for major labels including EMI and Sony ATV.
Having performed with and alongside artists such as Bruno Mars, Ed Sheeran, Mariah Carey, Maverick Sabre, The Wombats and also many other established and emerging U.K. artists, the London-based singer's voice can be heard on numerous TV shows (Hollyoaks, Luther, The big C, Inspector George Gently, Dark Angel), advertisment syncs (Playboy, Sky, Sainsbury's, NBA Sports, Discovery Channel, Samsung) and movie soundtracks (The Guilt Trip, I Give It A Year, A Little Piece Of Heaven, Life of Betty Paige). With 'Pictures' giving a hint of what to expect from her obvious and effortless talent in the future, we have a sneaking suspicion that Roo Savill is name that is well worth remembering.
