Making a unique brand of ‘baroque-pop’ she bares her soul with courage and conviction-full of stark self-reflection but also a knowing nod to the absurdity of life. Classically trained but with an eye for the catchy chorus and bright, pop melodies, Ruth sweeps from self-questioning piano ballads and lush string arrangements, to hands-in-the-air indie bangers. With the raw energy of a young disabled person who has constantly had to adapt to life’s twists and turns, her introspective and sometimes droll twist on storytelling brings up questions you never knew you should be asking
