If country music is three chords and the truth, then Ruthie Collins has a lot of chords up her sleeve…
The rising country artist from Fredonia (a small town in New York State with under 10,000 people) spent her early years obsessed with country icons including Patty Griffin and Emmylou Harris and perfecting her own songwriting craft – before moving to Nashville to officially step into the ring as a country artist.
On her latest project “Cold Comfort”, the singer-songwriter combines stories of heartbreak (such as the twisted love story “Hey Little Girl”, about a lover who is too loose lipped late at night…) with moments of reflection (“Joshua Tree” and “Beg Steal Borrow” which take a more introspective approach).
As Ruthie continues to grow and reach new audiences, she’s placing her truth first and foremost: fusing references to her childhood and deep references into her lyrics, intertwined with a soundtrack of Americana and country.
Madeleine Molly sat down with Ruthie Collins in London to talk about Indian food, the hidden meaning in her music and more.
