Biography

Nomi Ruiz is a Nu-disco and Hip hop singer from New York City who is most famous for being among the cast of vocalists that contributed to Hercules and Love Affair’s debut album. Ruiz has also collaborated with dance music trio The Ones

Nomi Ruiz released her debut album Lost In Lust on her own independent label Park Side Records. The album is a song-oriented downbeat electronic album steeped in the grittier ends of early-’90s hip-hop and R&B production. Since its debut, she had been able to tour with other artists such as Debbie Harry and CocoRosie. She also toured with Antony & The Johnsons and has been apart of their “Turning” project.

Nomi Ruiz was featured on the songs “You Belong”, “Hercules Theme”, and “I’m Telling You” for album Hercules and Love Affair. Pitchfork Media placed “Hercules Theme” at #21 on The 100 Best Tracks of 2008.[4] She toured extensively with the band in support of the album, singing her song contributions as well as those of Antony Hegarty. The Guardian described Ruiz as “boasting the spookily effortless air of a future pop icon.”

She formed the group Jessica 6 with Andrew Raposo (of Automato) and Morgan Wiley. The band met in late 2007 after they helped put together the Hercules and Love Affair live show. Jessica 6 released their debut single “Fun Girl” on May 21, 2009, by the label Midnight Sun Sound. Jessica 6 has toured with Amanda Blank and Peaches.

Ruiz collaborated with The Ones on their single “Let’s Celebrate” from their upcoming fourth album Blast From the Past. “Let’s Celebrate” currently peaked at #9 on the U.S Billboard Hot Dance Club Songs.
