Ruth has a gift of showcasing and framing each song rather than the singer. She sings I'm So Lonesome with such soul I swear she and not Hank W. wrote it !

AWESOME, AWESOME, AWESOME, AWESOME, AWESOME VOICE!!!!
Outstanding lyrics! The songs flow smoothly from one to the other even when the style of the music changes. This could only be accomplished by such a versatile female vocalist as Ruth with her unique voice and incredible vocal range. Basicly, it doesn't matter WHAT type of music she happens to be singing because anything and everything she sings sounds great!

Ruthy invites you into her room,thus you feel her heart
This CD is not for light listening,it is a very emotional group of songs and are delivered beautifully by a very good performer.Ruth writes her songs about the trials of love and life,and they aren't always cheery and happy...just as true life .The players on this CD lovingly played and helped contribute to one of the best debuts that I have heard in many years.I can't wait to hear her next solo project.
Ruth's voice is very similar to a very young Maria Muldaur,yet she brings so much more to her songs.Ruth is a very accomplished musician,playing ukuleles of many varieties as well as guitar on this collection.She is also an excellent fiddler,and I hope that she includes her fiddle work on her next CD.
