"The soul of ruth"


"It's soul music. I have to feel it, in order to sing it with a little bit of soul." Said Ruth.
Lately, it seems that whenever a new teen pop star comes along, she releases a couple of annoyingly catchy but highly forgettable tunes, only to be replaced by a fresher face; not so with Ruth Koll.
Once in a blue moon, a young, new talent comes along to shake things up, and Ruth Koll is just that. She sings soul with the maturity of a veteran songstress
Ruth is extremely likable, modest and wise beyond her years. Between songs, she giggles with the charm of the girl next door. When compared to Dusty Springfield, she blushes.
And she is quick to challenge old notions of race and music. She sings soul, not "black" or "white" music

When Ruth first performed on the BBC, she was entirely unrefined. It was her natural, 14-year-old pipes that belted out tunes like a Motown goddess.
She says she's the only one in her family who sings, so she has no one but herself to thank for her golden vocal cords.
And when someone that young is equated with the great pioneers of a genre, you know she has talent to spare - Elle Magazine/Sean Thomas
