The musical dream planted in Dustin Ruth is more than just a whim. Though at one time it seemed to him that it might be, few have demonstrated his tenacity in transforming what was once a seemingly unattainable fantasy into a beautiful reality. His journey has shown there are “No second hand dreams”, as the desires of his heart to touch human souls with sound have been placed there for a reason, from above.
Ruth showcases everything that is right about post-90’s radio/pop rock. Think Nirvana, Radiohead, Third Eye Blind, and Counting Crows. Combine that with a touch of the singer/songwriting finesse of Ryan Adams, and you have a formula for emotive melody, memorable choruses, and passionate songwriting. This is Ruth. Intimate. Dynamic. Memorable. Accessible.
If there is one characteristic, one virtue that defines the spirit of Ruth, it is hope--hope amidst real life circumstance. This theme will, no doubt, dominate the upcoming debut album. Combined with the lush melodic landscape of the songwriting, these songs promise to bridge the gap between loss and healing in the lives of real people.
