Ruth Blake on SoundBetter

Emotionally potent mezzo alto vocalist with wide range, soft yet strong. Deep and rich with ethereal clear high tones. Intuitive topliner and harmoniser + acoustic guitar finger picking.

Versatile vocalist on the breathy/Celtic end of the spectrum for lead, topline and/or BVs. Can do bittersweet/ethereal or more playful/ballsy/rich and sassy. Specialise in layered harmonies. English accent and comfortable singing in Spanish. Love playing with rhythm and harmony. Confident and creative harmoniser with excellent pitch, good at nailing in one take. Experienced with mixed genres, especially indie, folk, R&B, jazz and EDM.

Testimonials such as 'haunting,' 'ethereal,' 'delicate,' 'exquisite sensitivity,' 'elegant,' 'gently majestic.'

Can record from home. Prices negotiable depending on nature of project.

NB I don't currently offer much production extras beyond basic recording and comping in Logic.

    I've worked with Ruth a number of times in various projects age i can attest whole heartedly to her level of talent, professionalism and passion as an artist.

    Ruth did all of the backing vocals / harmonies on my album "Ofrenda" adding wonderful layers and depth to the project. She has since performed the songs live with me and a full band and I would hire her again in a second.

    Absolute Joy

    Ruth recorded backing vocals for our debut album 10 years ago. She perfectly blended sweet gentle and exquisite harmonies bringing heartfelt beauty to the compositions which truely enhanced the music. She delivered above and beyond our expectations with creative ideas. She was confident and very efficient in the studio. She has good improvisation skills both live and in the studio..
    Ruth is a highly creative, and talented musician in her own right. Her music is soulful and healing…. She is easy going and a joy to work with..
