Growing up in Birmingham, Ruth Owens began to sing and learn the violin and guitar as a young child. With her parents guiding her eclectic music taste to include greats such as Rufus Wainwright, Norah Jones and The Beatles, she began crafting her own songs in a folk style in her early teens. By 16 she had recorded her first EP entitled ‘Strong’, from which two tracks gained radio play on BBC 6 Music, and the title track was placed in the independent film ‘Just Charlie’ which premiered on Sky Movies in 2017.
After moving to Manchester to study at The Royal Northern College of Music she met James Cooke, Kieran Murphy, Fraser Grant and Noah Chapman, who became great friends and band mates. Since consolidating this new line up, Ruth and the band have been writing fresh new material and gigging regularly around Manchester, highlights include performances at The Bridgewater Hall and Manchester Day, as well as supporting The RNCM Session Orchestra to a sold out hall accompanied by a 25 piece orchestra.
"I’ve known Ruth and her music for nearly six years now, and I can safely say that she is one of the most naturally gifted musicians that I’ve seen in a long time."

"Ruth Owens' voice has an effortless quality that is well complimented by the alt-country backing. It’s a voice that seems to have a confidence well beyond her years"
