This Georgia-based troubadour has a lightness of touch that brings a joyous sense even to a song with a name like “Misery.” Ruby does this by singing to her strengths, with a croon that’s nearly childlike in its gentle approach and with a modest backup group that are more interested in playing together than starring in their own show. This communal vibe is ideal for Ruby, who grew up in a household of hippies where art was encouraged and second nature. Ruby’s debut album, the charming No Weight No Chain, took her down a largely acoustic lane; New As Dew refines the acoustic guitars and adds a touch more production to give her voice more room to roam. She even saves her best for near last. After more than a half-dozen tunes that venture near a perfect pop song, “Sing to Me” reaches out with a leisurely gait and a double-tracked vocal, making it sound so easy for someone to write a song that sticks to your brain.
