Margaret Browning Bio
Margaret joined Blood Ruby in 2003. Although the newest member of the band, she has quickly established herself as a major creative force. Her bass playing is a key element in the band's evolving sound, providing a solid foundation as well as a melodic signature. While she still considers the bass her core instrument, she often showcases her remarkable talents on the guitar in the form of delicate fingerpicked arpeggios and memorable solos. She is also responsible for many of the keyboard touches on the more recent songs.
Perhaps the most stunning of her contributions are her distinctive vocals. Her sound, at times dark and rich with harmonics and emotion, brings yet another texture to the band's sonic palette. Her layered background vocal tracks are unforgettable, as are her soulful lead vocals on songs like Sleepwalk, "Angeline," and "Separate Sides."
