Biography

This isn’t New York City we’re talking about people; driving 6 hours north west of the Big Apple, you finally hit a small rural town where you can practically smell fresh produce when you exit the interstate. Raised on a grape farm, Ruth is no stranger to what it means to be a down home girl. The setting is quaint and homey. As you pull through town, only a few blocks long, Ruth points out landmarks from her adolesence. “There’s the Intermezzo Cafe where I played once. After that I decided to move to Nashville.” “There’s the sub shop I used to hang out at in high school! Can we stop?” Soon after grabbing a few chicken finger subs the road gets dark and she rolls down the car windows and says, “Smell!” The aroma of grapes fills the air. “Turn here!” Pulling up into the driveway of a two-story farm cottage you forget that you have just driven north from TN for 10 hours. She runs into the house greeting her childhood pets and wraps her arms around her Mama. To the left of the driveway is a garden of wildflowers which leads you to another small cottage where her mother runs her own music school. As long as Ruth can imagine she was surrounded by music. Being raised on the music of Emmylous Harris and James Taylor and classical music, you can hear those influences in music today. Just behind the building is another large structure, the barn where the family runs their grape farming business and makes homemade apple cider. Beyond the barn are acres and acres of grape vines. So, to calm your apprehension, yes the girl is from New York and, yes she is country!
