All Releases


On the heels on a very successful first release, and even more impressive touring history Ruth returns with their sophomore smash "Anorak". Written primarily at rest stops and hotels, "Anorak" captures the emotions and experiences of watching some dreams come true, and other fall beyond reach. After sharing the stage with the likes of Switchfoot, Relient K, and Emery the band settled in for a few months to record these tales of honesty with an acclaimed roster of producers. Production duties were handled by Aaron Sprinkle (Copeland, Anberlin), Chris Keene (Surrogate, Number One Gun), and Kelsey Smith. The album was mixed by Ken Andrews (Mae, Pete Yorn) and JR McNeely (The Almost, Relient K). With an impressive radio history, and significant debut sales under their belt, Ruth will hit the road in the Fall and continue to chase a dream that they cannot keep to themselves.

Quick Bio

Ruth isn't just the last name of the band's founder, singer / guitarist Dustin Ruth. When his longtime collaborator Nick Wiinikka suggested they call their fledgling group "Ruth" one night while watching a talk show on television, Dustin gave it a lot of thought until something special came to him, arriving with powerful force: Ruth as an acronym.
