Ruth Wells

Tenor sax

"I am really excited about being in a band where I am NOT the only girl!!! I've been playing sax for 18 years, and piano for 21 years. I studied music at the University of Sydney and now play in a variety of bands including The Bakery, Squid and Brass Knuckles as well as guest work with Extended Family, Brian Campeau, Squat Club, and Luke Escombe.

"The styles I perform include jazz, afro beat, dub/reggae, ska, gypsy, balkan brass, and modern classical. I’m  interested in experimental improvisation and have performed at the Now Now and Difficult music festivals as well as Cullture Jam (improvised music and art collaboration). I also compose, and am currently working on an album with some help from my friends."
