NEW SINGLE: TURN THE LIGHTS BACK DOWN

Turn the Lights Back Down

Nancy Ruth

I originally wrote this tune as a simple piano/ vocal feature, and then it turned into a full production, with parts recorded in Vancouver, New York, and Malaga, Spain, thanks to the collaboration of talented friends.

Although it could be described as a romantic ballad, ‘turn the lights back down’ is also a way of saying, let’s cut down on all the noise and distraction, and focus on the love that connects us all.

NEW SINGLE: WHERE THE SEA MELTS TO SKY

Where the Sea Melts To Sky

Nancy Ruth

Do I ever feel lucky I had the chance to do this project before the world went crazy. It's the first song I've written that's been orchestrated, and I had the luxury of recording it in New York with members of the New York Philharmonic. Joe Gianono wrote the arrangement and conducted. Multi-grammy award winning Oscar Zambrano recorded, mixed and mastered the track.

NEW SINGLE: BREATHING IN INDIGO

Breathing In Indigo

Nancy Ruth

"Breathing In Indigo" her latest single, begins with a lightning-flash of flamenco guitar from the dextrous Luis Robisco. From there, the group locks into a groove equally indebted to jazz, rock, and the flamenco bulería. Nancy Ruth illuminates the track (which, like most of her material, is her own composition) with a vocal performance that radiates passion: for life, for love, and for the infinite possibilities of modern music.

With her flame-blonde curly hair, her explosive energy, and her effortlessly expressive face, Nancy Ruth has a powerful stage presence. The "Breathing In Indigo" video captures the seductive quality of her sound - the elegance of jazz, the sultriness of flamenco, and the immediate appeal of modern pop rock, all in a single package.
