After high school she decided to leave her small town roots and hit Boston where she attended the Berklee College of Music as a songwriting major. She played shows around town with friends but decided to move south and get in touch with her musical roots. After college she took a job as a music director at a church in TX but didn’t feel like her talents were being utilized and ultimately followed her heart to Nashville.
Working as a waitress, Ruth met her fellow duo partner in her first group, Wild Honey, who went on to come in 4th on the first season of CMT’s “Can You Duet.” With the duo, Ruth had the pleasure of opening for acts like Sarh Evans, Luke Bryan and Gretchen Wilson.
Going out on her own, Ruth found herself at a crossroads. She had been in the Wild Honey world for so long that she wanted to make sure that she moved forward with a sound and approach that were all her own. Trying to grasp her image as a solo artist, she decided to focus on her music. She spent months writing both on her own, with local music friends and even had the pleasure of writing with the likes of Jeff Cohen, Dennis Matkosky, Nathan Champman and Steve Bogard. Setting out to be the singer/songwriter that she is, she shared her new songs with the world perorming her first solo show opening for Aaron Tippin in her hometown. Currently, Ruth is continuing to build her song catalog while performing both locally and regionally. When not engulfed in the music you can find her online talking to her fans and doing video chats with them sharing her new music, and playing with her dog, admiringly named “Emmylou.”
