So much has happened so quickly for 21-year-old Canadian singer /songwriter Ruth B. The beautifully rendered viral hit “Lost Boy” takes flight under Ruth’s stunning vocal command. Note the organic way she went about posting the first staggered snippets of “Lost Boy” on the short-form video sharing service Vine – looping snatches of the song in haunting, six second reveals.  Such patient handling reflected the quiet confidence in her own muse – a crucial indicator as to how a complete unknown could go on to garner two million followers on Vine, blaze a self-propelled sales-trail on iTunes, and ink a major label record contract all in a six month window. Since then, “Lost Boy” is now Certified Platinum in the US, Canada, Sweden (x2) and The Netherlands and streamed more than 100 million times on Spotify around the globe. In November of 2015, Ruth released her debut EP, The Intro, which includes “Lost Boy” and three new original tracks: “Superficial Love,” “Golden” and “Two Poor Kids.”
