CANADIAN NEWCOMER RUTH B. ESTABLISHED HERSELF AS AN AUTHENTIC
SINGER/SONGWRITER OF CONSIDERABLE PROMISE AND PURPOSE IN 2016, AND THE
MUSIC WORLD RESPONDED WITH OPEN ARMS. MOST RECENTLY, SHE RECEIVED A COVETED
JUNO AWARD FOR BREAKTHROUGH ARTIST OF THE YEAR AND A BMI POP AWARD FOR HER
VIRAL HIT “LOST BOY,” WHICH STARTED IT ALL. HER 12-SONG DEBUT ALBUM SAFE
HAVEN SHINES AS DAZZLING POP EMBROIDERY FAR SURPASSING FIRST ALBUM
EXPECTATIONS, WITH ROLLING STONE LAUDING THE ALBUM 3.5 STARS AND DECLARING
RUTH B. “ONE TO WATCH.”

COMPOSING ALL OF THE ALBUM’S SONGS HERSELF, RUTH BLAZES WITH THE SAME
SUREFOOTED INTENSITY AS SHE DID ON “LOST BOY,” BUT ALL THE WHILE
TRANSFORMING AND GROWING RIGHT BEFORE OUR EYES. HER CAPTIVATING PRESENCE
CHARGES THE ATMOSPHERE ON THE NEW ALBUM WITH AN UNPRETENTIOUS INTIMACY.
GRAMMY AWARD-WINNING PRODUCER JOEL LITTLE’S (LORDE) LAYERED PRODUCTION
SHOWCASES RUTH’S BREATHTAKINGLY GOLDEN VOCALS AND PIANO/KEYBOARD CHOPS
WHILE CREATING NEW AURAL SPACES FOR HER TO SHINE.

WHETHER IT’S THE INCREDIBLE POP SONG CRAFT OF “DANDELION” OR THE UP-TEMPO
HARMONIC SPLENDOR OF “SAFE HAVEN,” THE YOUNG ARTIST WINS US OVER AS AN
UNDILUTED FORCE TO BE RECKONED WITH. RUTH’S INSTINCTUAL COMMAND IS
ELEGANTLY MAGNIFIED, WITH LITTLE ENLIVENING THE SONIC SHADINGS AND
BREATHTAKING HARMONIES, BUT NEVER OVER-REACHING. LIKE ALL THE BEST
FULLY-REALIZED DEBUT ALBUMS, *SAFE HAVEN* STAKES CLAIM TO HIGHER MUSICAL
GROUND BY THE SHEER POWER OF RUTH’S ARTISTRY.

BLESSED WITH A KNACK FOR FLAKING THE GOLD FROM EVERY CONFESSIONAL VERSE,
THE 21 YEAR OLD RUTH HAS DESCRIBED *SAFE HAVEN* AS A MUSICAL “DIARY,” WITH
MANY OF THE SONGS INSPIRED BY THOSE FINAL, FORMATIVE YEARS OF HIGH SCHOOL
AND THE YEAR AFTER LEADING UP TO HER ASTONISHING DEBUT. “I DIDN’T DO ANY
CO-WRITES ON THE ALBUM BECAUSE I NEEDED THE SONGS TO COME FROM HEART,” RUTH
SAYS. “WRITING SONGS FOR ME IS LITERALLY LIKE KEEPING A DIARY. THESE ARE
STORIES ROOTED IN THAT CRUCIAL PHASE OF GROWING UP – WHAT I FELT ABOUT LOVE
AND HEARTBREAK AND BEING YOUNG AND EVERYTHING IN BETWEEN, SO I COULDN’T
IMAGINE HANDING OVER THE DIARY TO SOMEONE ELSE. ”

*SAFE HAVEN* SHOWCASES RUTH’S ABILITY TO CHANGE COURSE, FROM PLAINTIVE
PIANO BALLADS LIKE THE POIGNANT OPENING TRACK “MIXED SIGNALS” TO THE
MOODIER LOVE-IS-A-BATTLEFIELD-DRAMATICS OF “WORLD WAR 3.” SHE SCALES THE
HEIGHTS OF HER VOCAL POWER ON THE STUNNING POWER-BALLAD “IF THIS IS LOVE,”
WHICH RUTH WROTE IT IN ONE DAY AND PERFORMED THE NEXT NIGHT TO A SOLD-OUT
CROWD AT JOE’S PUB. “FOR ME THAT WAS A REAL TURNING POINT – THE NIGHT WHERE
PEOPLE STOPPED LOOKING AT ME AS A ‘VINER’ AND SAW THAT I WAS A GENUINE
SONGWRITER. NOW, MY BIGGEST GOAL IS FOR THE SONGS ON *SAFE HAVEN*TO MOVE
PEOPLE AND INSPIRE THEM.”
