Biography

There are multiple artists with this name:

1) Ruth is a French new wave band formed in the early 1980s by Thierry Müller. The group’s lone album, “Polaroïd/Roman/Photo”, was released in 1985. It sold just 50 copies and was relegated to obscurity until the track “Polaroïd/Roman/Photo” started appearing on bootlegs and compilations in the early 2000s, slowly becoming the cult synthpop classic it is nowadays. Ruth are a shining light from an oft forgotten music scene that is becoming increasingly influential today.

Ruth was the brainchild of Thierry Müller, a photographer and graphic artist from Paris who drew his inspiration from bands and artists like Brian Eno, Stockhausen, Pere Ubu, Neu, Velvet Underground and Kraftwerk. The line-up of Ruth was collaborative and fluid, brass mingles with prototype drum machines, and squalling experimentation sits alongside sultry French girls across 40 minutes of edgy pop innovation that sounds remarkably undated alongside contemporary pop music.
In 2012 Ruth came back with “Far From Paradise”, a collaborative album with Italian electronic artist Mushy.

2) Ruth is a Bulgarian soul/jazz singer. For Ruth Koleva, music isn’t just a hobby, it’s her way of life. She starts traveling around the world at the age of 9, having her first official stage appearance in Thailand. At 15, she flies to New York to enchant Joe Fletcher, a top manager and concert promoter who has worked with a wide range of musicians (BB King, James Brown, Tori Amos, Black Eyed Peas), the result of which is singing up with him and recording her first original demo with Martin Briley
