The RUBY FRIEDMAN ORCHESTRA partnered with Yahoo! Music, yesterday (December 5), to premiere the official music video for “I’m Not your Friend,” the lead single off their recently released roots-infused debut full-length album, GEM (11/11).

“This is a double murder ballad with rape, murder and animal torture themes taken from true stories,” says FRIEDMAN. “When my managers told me their daughter Viv and her friends were obsessed with the song and making up scary skits to it in her room, I said, ‘There’s the video.'”
Friedman’s striking rendition of Darrell Scott’s “You’ll Never Leave Harlan Alive” was featured in 2014’s season-closing episode of the hit FX series “Justified,” and in addition, her original song “Drowned”–co-authored by “Sons of Anarchy” music supervisor Bob Thiele–was spotlighted in the popular FX biker drama. Friedman showcased her voice for the season two trailer of the Emmy Award-wining Amazon original series “Transparent.” Another RUBY FRIEDMAN ORCHESTRA original, “Shooting Stars,” was synched in campaigns by Fox Sports and for the international Got Talent franchise, including NBC’s “America’s Got Talent.” Friedman‘s voice was featured in the Clio Award-winning 2015 television and online campaign for Sony’s best-selling video game Bloodborne.
