Ruth B. has emerged as a vital artist whose trademark vocal style and vivid songwriting narratives have set the tone for even more alluring reveals in 2017; namely, a robust 12-song debut album on the horizon for this spring, christened by a lively new single, “Superficial Love,” due out February 24 which joyously opens another new door for the singer/songwriter.

The fabled arc of how her career took flight is viral legend now, but it was the stunning vocal command and riveting lyrical flair she showed on her hit debut, “Lost Boy,” that won hearts and minds across the globe. “Lost Boy” is now certified multi-Platinum in the US (x2), Canada (x3), Sweden (3x), the Netherlands (2x), Denmark (2x) and certified Gold in Norway. Ruth answered her rapidly building fan base with a celebrated EP, The Intro, and was named one of the top artists on iTunes’ Best of 2016 year-end music lists. Ruth also landed a coveted opening slot on Alessia Cara’s recent North American tour with performances in iconic venues such from Radio City Music Hall to Ryman Auditorium. Ruth’s first new musical offering since the release of her EP, “In My Dreams,” was tapped in November for a pivotal scene in ABC’s Once Upon a Time – the series that inspired her enchanting debut single.

Eager to render the growth of a journey she’s empathetically shared with her fans from the start, Ruth recorded her upcoming debut album in Los Angeles with producer Joel Little, who previously collaborated with Lorde on her multi-Platinum debut, among others. Just as she did on her debut EP The Intro, Ruth wrote and composed all the songs on the album herself. The result is Ruth’s signature sparse, heartfelt keyboard/vocal arrangements along with exquisite drum beats mixed with her rich vocals, resulting in a beautifully layered collection of relevant pop hits. Be forewarned, as this passionate artist delivers with a flourish on her new single “Superficial Love,” a welcome prompt that rewards the best has yet to come.

“Give me the guitar and I’ll give you the truth,” sings Hailey Knox on “Take It Or Leave It,” the groovy lead track off her debut EP, A Little Awkward. She isn’t kidding. Over the course of the EP’s five knockout songs, the 17-year-old singer-songwriter, who built a considerable grassroots fan base through YouTube and live-streaming platform YouNow before signing to S-Curve Records late last year, proceeds to deliver an engaging, candid portrait of her life as a female member of post- Millennial Generation Z.

“I try to draw from whatever craziness is going on in my head,” Carmel, NY-native Knox says of her lyrics, “whether it’s relationship drama, being plagued by self-doubt, or feeling like an outsider in school.” With their savvy perspective on modern-day digital-era culture and references to Oreos, Shake Shack, and Dr. Evil, the songs are relatable and charming, like Knox herself — a blue-eyed, blonde with an endearingly goofy, shy demeanor who nonetheless blooms with confidence when she steps onstage with her acoustic guitar and loop pedal. “I called the EP A Little Awkward because that’s me,” Knox says. “I’m kind of scatterbrained and I’m always finding myself in awkward situations.”

Throughout A Little Awkward, Knox creates a warm, intimate sound that showcases both her guitar playing and soulful voice – the perfect delivery system for her clever, honest songs. “Take It Or Leave It” is unapologetic in its demand for others to accept Knox as she is, while “My Worst Enemy” is more vulnerable in its admission that she doesn’t always feel so confident. “Loopty Loop” finds Knox riding the rollercoaster of a relationship, while “Awkward” begs a hovering adult in her life to back off. Then there’s her first single, “Geeks,” which Knox came up with during her junior year of high school. “I didn’t really belong in any social group and I would escape to the music building and play guitar,” she recalls. “I felt like an outsider. This song is for anyone else who feels that way.”

A native of upstate New York, Knox seems to have found her place as a performer. Her dad taught her to play when she was seven. “We have a recording of me at age two singing ‘Blackbird’ by The Beatles. I can’t even pronounce the words, it comes out ‘bwack bird,’” she says with a laugh. Knox’s mom shares his affinity for such artists as Ingrid Michaelson with her daughter, and Knox cites the soulful voices of Tori Kelly and Allen Stone as other influences. At 12, Knox and her sister, performing as a duo, began posting covers of their favorite songs on YouTube, which caught the attention of music industry veterans Peter Zizzo and Michael Mangini, who felt they were too young to work with at the time, but kept an eye on them. After Knox received a loop effects pedal as a Christmas gift and posted a solo video of Aloe Blacc’s “I Need A Dollar,” Zizzo reached out again and encouraged Knox to be diligent about posting videos every week and trying to build a fan base through YouTube, which she did. In February 2015, Meghan Trainor tweeted Knox’s cover of Bill Withers’ “Ain’t No Sunshine” and said: “I’m ur biggest fan” (Trainor also tweeted about her obsession with “Geeks” upon its release). Eventually Knox gravitated to YouNow, where she is now one of the live-streaming site’s most prominent, popular broadcasters. Knox was also profiled as a YouNow success story in Billboard earlier this year, and earned a nomination for “YouNower of the Year” at the 2016 Shorty Awards.

Knox burgeoning fan base and obvious musical talent led to her signing with S-Curve Records (home of hits by Andy Grammer, Joss Stone, Leslie Odom, Jr., We The Kings, Fountains of Wayne etc). She then went into the studio with producers Mangini (Joss Stone, Diane Birch), Zizzo (Avril Lavigne, Vanessa Carlton) and S-Curve’s Steve Greenberg (Andy Grammer, Joss Stone) to record the songs that comprise A Little Awkward, which will be released on June 24th. “Music is my escape,” Knox says. “Just picking up a guitar and jamming is my favorite thing to do. That’s how these songs came to be and it’s cool to finally share them with the world.”
