Ruut Gets Ready to Tell “UnTold Stories”
March 7th, 2016 by Kathryn O'Brien
Local Baltimore artist, Ruut, has awed the world with her raw storytelling through music. Ruut’s voice is baroque, rife with emotion and honesty. Her original work is deeply human combining transcendent vocals with truthful narratives. Her phenomenal style and emotional intelligence transforms well known songs. Ruut has covered many songs from across all genres, from Taylor Swift’s Style to Soundgarden’s Black Hole Sun. Ruut’s cover of Pearl Jam’s “Jeremy” interprets this incredibly profound song and captures its devastating subject matter with poignancy and delicacy.
Her music has been influenced by her numerous travels from her native Finland, to Budapest, Nashville, NY, LA and now Baltimore, each new location informing her overall sound. Her cover of Sia’s Chandeliers pust her native tongue on display. Ruut translated Chandeliers into Finnish and performed her own arrangement of Sia’s iconic ballad.
Ruut will be performing here at Loyola on March. 10th. The following day, on March. 11th, Ruut will release her new album, Untold Stories. Untold Stories is currently available for pre-order on her website.
