Ruth is a Dublin based artist from Co. Kerry, Ireland. Having brought a classic sound with a modern twist to the Irish music scene, she has very quickly come to prominence within the music industry. Spring 2016 saw her support English band ‘This Is The Kit’ in association with MCD promotions on their sold out Irish tour. Her music has been praised and acknowledged by the renowned BBC Introducing, The Irish Times and RTÉ amongst many others. Winter 2016 saw her perform at the prestigious Other Voices festival in Dingle, and 2017 saw her make her debut at the sold out Electric Picnic festival. Her single 'Off My Mind' premiered on BBC Introducing in May, before the release of a stripped back version of the song on VEVO, which was received with huge acclaim worldwide. Musical influences originated at home, with Leonard Cohen serenading her during car journeys, and Elvis singing from the kitchen at night time. Having started her training as a classical musician at the age of eight, Ruth began composing her own songs on the piano when she was twelve, and has been honing her craft ever since. With conflicting interests in Hollywood film, classical and electronic music, she translates an eclectic mix of influences into one modern, cohesive sound. A natural performer, she boasts an energetic and enchanting set.
