Ruth grew up in a musical household and has been singing since the age of 2 with her three older sisters in a family group known as “the Best Girls”. The group took part in many variety shows and festivals in the Annapolis Valley area for many years.
During her studies at Nova Scotia Teachers College in the 1990s, Ruth performed both on her own and with others at college functions. She also joined a country band in the Truro area.
Since 1995, Ruth has worked with a number of bands and performers, making her way around Nova Scotia and New Brunswick including Triple Time, Sidekixx, Route 12, Graham Moorhead, Matt Balsor and Ryan Cook. She is pleased to say that she has been involved in country music for about 40 years.
In 2005, Ruth won a singing contest in Dartmouth which took her to Nashville to sing on the stages of Tootsies Bar and The Nashville Palace. She has since completed two solo CD’s which include many of Ruth’s original songs, the second of which was recorded in Nashville. Ruth’s original music has received radio play here in Nova Scotia, as well as in Ontario, the US, Australia, Germany, and New Zealand.
Ruth’s latest music venture involved travelling to Nashville in April 2015 to record her third CD entitled “Tennessee Calling” which consists of 9 original songs and 3 favorites, which was released in July 2015.
