Still working on that hot first release.



Principally a Violinist, Ruth taught herself guitar as a busker on the streets of Southampton. Claiming to still barely know the names of the strings, her guitar playing and use of unconventional techniques and unique tunings has dumbfounded guitarists ever since.
In 2010 her edgy and thought provoking album ‘White Holes Of Mole Hills’ in 2010, received critical acclaim from The Guardian, The Observer, BBC Radio3 and BBC6music.
In 2012 Ruth opened for grammy award winning american folk singer Ani DiFranco for two sold out shows at the Union Chapel, London. Ruth performed those shows without her two front teeth! ‘Dear Lamp Love Moth’ was released in 2013 and received further high praise from The Guardian, Mojo magazine and other national press and radio.
In September 2013 Ruth began assembling the barber-shop blues musicians that now accompany her latest material. This new collection displays more energy than we’ve seen from Ruth in a while as she tears around the guitar with a brass slide. Currently performing and recording, this material is expected for release summer 2014.
