Hailing from Southwest of England Ruth grew up in a creative environment and this has embedded a deep musicality in her; she was writing music before she knew how, and the music that she was creating came from her core.
After years of experimenting with her sound and performing as a jazz singer on the UK and Berlin circuits, Ruth’s sound materialised. Layered with electronic influences Ruth had picked up from her Bristol heritage, her sound is a hybrid of old and new.
