Ruth Theodore


‘Original folk voice’ Ruth Theodore signed to Ani Difranco’s Righteous Babe Records, has collaborated and shared stages with iconic international artists, adopting the role of international co-producer, and unleashing four critically acclaimed studio albums to date, with an imminent fifth eagerly anticipated.

Ruth’s music reflects her naturally transient personality, actively avoiding being pinned down in all aspects of life from sexuality to physical location, Ruth’s compositions, like their creator, delve deep into various realms and genres whilst never lingering long enough to become entangled in the details. With this panoramic vista, Ruth creates and performs with a unique and instantly recognizable style that effortlessly pushes the boundaries of gender and genre, and defies the confines of the conventional “singer-songwriter” archetype.

Ruth’s emotive, often political, but always playful stage show, radiates joy and energy, earning her the honor of appearing as special guest alongside US political folk icon Ani Difranco, gracing iconic venues like the illustrious London Palladium. Influential publications such as ‘The Guardian’ sing Ruth’s praises and editor and founder of ‘fRoots’ heralds Ruth as ‘one of the most innovative, original, exciting – and underrated – artists in the UK’.
