    Wow. What wonderful and impressive voice and her songs are simply great.

    I must say, she sounds nothing like Joan Armatrading to me... I quite like the album I tried ("Let It Burn"), though it was a bit blander than I'd hoped for.

    Reminds me at times of Joan Armatrading (2) I'd have to agree with that

    Just discovered Ruthie...what a great find! This lady has soul! Reminds me at times of Joan Armatrading who is my second fav female singer after Kate Bush. Can't wait for the new album!

    Such an incredible singer... her cover of Sam Cooke's "You Send Me" is just breathtaking! See if you can find it from "Live at the Basement".
