From having a sheltered life, growing up in Ireland to moving to the dazzling city of Los Angeles in her early 20’s to pursue a career in songwriting, RuthAnne experienced many major ups and downs. The album illustrates her evolution into a strong, independent woman in both her personal and professional life; finally stepping from being the writer behind the hits to an all-encompassing recording artist with an effortless, powerhouse vocal. RuthAnne explains: “I wrote a lot of my album ‘Matters Of The Heart’ after living in LA for five years and returning to home, Ireland & London. The album is in three sections and it follows the timeline exactly of when each of the songs were written. It’s the journey through my 20’s… first is ‘HEARTBREAK’, to ‘HOPE’, then to ‘LOVE’. Becoming a woman, learning the lessons from bad toxic ‘feckboy hollywood’ relationships I got into in LA. It’s a growing up album and anyone who knows me as a person, knows I deal with matters of the heart in every encounter.”
‘Matters Of The Heart’ takes you through RuthAnne’s story, chapter by chapter, with production by Fraser T Smith (Adele, Tom Grennan, Stormzy), Malay (Lorde, Frank Ocean, ZAYN), Future Cut (Little Mix, Shakira), Noah Breakfast (Ty Dolla $ign, Christine And The Queens) and Sonny J Mason (Kimbra). It melds the classic, authentic songwriting that she was raised on with the pop sensibilities of the artists she’s worked with, to her favourite Nineties R&B artists.
She continues: “I’m a deep person who secretly wants to be a therapist and is fascinated with human nature in relationship. Why we treat each other the way we do; why we hurt the ones we love sometimes; why we stay with the wrong person; why we are afraid to let go; why are we never satisfied and why we find it so hard to love ourselves. Throughout my album you see a growth from brokenness to strength, from naivety to wisdom from complicated to clarity all through the nostalgia of classic soul, r&b, pop songs.”
