Ruled By Venus is a musical collective formed and led by violinist Emily Moore and singer/songwriter Simon Petty. Their brand of up tempo fiddle-based folk rock combines the raw energy of traditional Celtic jigs and reels with the familiarity of more contemporary artists from the Fifties to the present day.

Emily brings her virtuosity to bear on a range of musical genres. Trained from the age of four in the classical tradition, she moves effortlessly from formal chamber music to bluegrass to jazz and back to folk as the situation requires, but always eventually returns to the dance music of her Scottish roots.

Simon came to California from northern England and is steeped in the traditions of his home country's musical history as well. Whether he is singing the songs of the Beatle-led British Invasion of the 1960's, the Celtic poetry of Van Morrison and The Pogues or the good old fashioned rock 'n' roll of his adopted American home, he brings a unique warmth and vibrancy to whichever genre he's performing.

Ruled By Venus have a vast amount of gigging experience between them, from Staples Center and Disney Hall to a host of weddings, special events and Irish pubs across Southern California. They perform as a duo, trio or as a full band with drums, bass and guitars, so are uniquely adaptable for events that require, for instance, some classical violin, a cocktail hour duo then a no-holds-barred dance band into the wee hours!

This band is fantastic!! Everyone at my wedding loved them and had such a great time. They are both really cool, sweet people and are so incredibly talented. I'm so happy we went with them. They are just great. My husband and I cant say enough how satisfied we were with them. The music they played was great. They were on time, professional, courteous. I hope they get treated very well at all their future gigs because they are awesome!!

We had a great experience with Ruled by Venus. Simon and Emily are talented, professional, and fun. They kept in touch before the event and asked for input. They put on a fantastic show for our community. I would absolutely recommend them.

Ruled By Venus was great! They were very talented and responded well to all of my requests. The only area of growth I can recommend is with their audience interaction skills. I would have liked for them to communicate more with the audience. When they did the Irish sing-a-longs, very few members of the audience joined in even though all of the audience had the sing-a-long sheets. Ruled By Venus needs to make more of an effort to get everyone to pick up their sheets and join in. Preparing everyone before the songs began, saying things like, "I can't hear you!" and other efforts to get audience involved would have improved the overall experience. Overall: GREAT!
