About

Raised in Aberystwyth, Wales, songwriter and harpist Georgia Ruth's haunting voice has earned her favourable comparisons with the melancholy folk sirens of the late 60s. Recently, her single 'Week of Pines' garnered sterling support across the airwaves. Steve Lamacq named her as his "Favourite New Band" on BBC 6 Music, whilst Jo Whiley picked the single as her "New Favourite Thing" in the same week on BBC Radio 2.

Writing in the Independent, Andy Gill called her album “a dazzling debut, rich with sweet pain and joy” whilst Simon Price noted that it “could have been made in 1968. In the loveliest possible way.” Folk Roots magazine noted that “while Sandy Denny, Bert Jansch and Van Morrison all linger on the horizon, Georgia Ruth comes over as more of a true original than most of the young hopefuls roaming these isles,” before concluding that the record was a “true delight.” Robin Derslow praised Georgia’s “exquisite, gently powerful” version of Welsh sea shanty ‘Codi Angor’ in his Guardian review.
