Under the performing name RUBII, meanwhile, Jess Goodchild – receiving Philosophy, Politics and Art BA(Hons) – is carving out a burgeoning career as a singer. After notching up success in BBC Radio 1's Introducing slot and a string of releases, Jess has received Arts Council and National Lottery funding to produce a new EP this summer, alongside gigs in Brighton and elsewhere.
Jess said: “I've studied Philosophy, Politics and Art, which is a really interesting combination of subjects – and, despite Covid, I really enjoyed my course. Although I’m part of Humanities, the university's media team have always been really accommodating, as I’ve used the vocal studios a few times! Juggling my course as well as trying to pursue a career in music has been hectic, but I’ve loved uni, and doing music.”
