Ruth B.

Genre: Singer/Songwriter

The music career of Ruth Berhe (Ruth B), a contemporary singer and songwriter, began in unintended fashion. In December 2014, the Edmonton, Alberta native posted a clip to video-sharing network Vine, in which she could be heard singing a sorrowful original melody with lyrics inspired by the dramatic fairy-tale series Once Upon a Time. The clip's popularity encouraged her to write a full song, "Lost Boy." A performance was uploaded the following month to YouTube, and a studio version was eventually made available for download. "Lost Boy" prompted covers by many aspiring musicians, and it also earned the interest of major-label Columbia, who signed Berhe in July 2015. By the end of the year, The Intro -- a four-song EP completed during two days at a Brooklyn studio -- was released for streaming and downloading. It featured "Lost Boy," as well as three other songs consisting of just her voice and keyboards. ~ Andy Kellman
