Ruth Goller’s career is based on a heady mix of jazz skill and punk attitude. Hailing from the Italian Alps, but based in London, she plays both electric and double bass. Over the years, she has featured on a long and impressive list of intriguing projects, from Acoustic Ladyland and its successor Melt Yourself Down, to The Golden Age of Steam, Metamorphic, and World Sanguine Report. 

As she’s always open to pushing the boundaries in all directions, Goller’s new album Skylla is a blend of improvisation, harmonic explorations and multi-layered vocals. Innovative and sonically fascinating, the album supports her reputation as one of the rising stars of the modern jazz firmament.
