Ruth B. has emerged as a vital artist whose trademark vocal style and vivid songwriting narratives have set the tone for even more alluring reveals in 2017; namely, a robust 12-song debut album on the horizon for this spring, christened by a lively new single, “Superficial Love,” due out February 24 which joyously opens another new door for the singer/songwriter.
The fabled arc of how her career took flight is viral legend now, but it was the stunning vocal command and riveting lyrical flair she showed on her hit debut, “Lost Boy,” that won hearts and minds across the globe. “Lost Boy” is now certified multi-Platinum in the US (x2), Canada (x3), Sweden (3x), the Netherlands (2x), Denmark (2x) and certified Gold in Norway. Ruth answered her rapidly building fan base with a celebrated EP, The Intro, and was named one of the top artists on iTunes’ Best of 2016 year-end music lists. Ruth also landed a coveted opening slot on Alessia Cara’s recent North American tour with performances in iconic venues such from Radio City Music Hall to Ryman Auditorium. Ruth’s first new musical offering since the release of her EP, "In My Dreams," was tapped in November for a pivotal scene in ABC’s Once Upon a Time – the series that inspired her enchanting debut single.
Eager to render the growth of a journey she’s empathetically shared with her fans from the start, Ruth recorded her upcoming debut album in Los Angeles with producer Joel Little, who previously collaborated with Lorde on her multi-Platinum debut, among others. Just as she did on her debut EP The Intro, Ruth wrote and composed all the songs on the album herself. The result is Ruth’s signature sparse, heartfelt keyboard/vocal arrangements along with exquisite drum beats mixed with her rich vocals, resulting in a beautifully layered collection of relevant pop hits. Be forewarned, as this passionate artist delivers with a flourish on her new single “Superficial Love,” a welcome prompt that rewards the best has yet to come.
