International recording artist NANCY RUTH has graced stages worldwide, offering her unique musical blend of jazz, Latin and pop. Whether accompanying herself on the piano or flamenco guitar, or fronting her band, she sings with passionate, sultry tones and “commands the attention of the audience with a well-polished stage manner and palpable charismatic charms.” (Joseph Blake, Victoria Times-Colonist)
Nancy grew up in the seaside town of Sidney, British Columbia, Canada where an early love of jazz was ignited by the family jam sessions. But it wasn’t until she traveled to Latin America and then eventually settled in Spain that she found her greatest musical passion. Her love of Spanish now infuses much of her work as evident on her latest CD, Me Quedo, for the Home of Jazz label. Nancy continues to compose songs in a personal style encompassing the sounds of flamenco, jazz, and boleros.
She’s worked with pianist Bob Albanese in New York, studied with pianist Lloyd Abrams in Vancouver, collaborated with composer Toño Robira in Panama, and continues her study of the flamenco guitar with master tocaor Gabriel Cabrera de los Gazules in Spain.
Her career started with classical studies in voice, piano and theatre, then leading roles in musicals such as Dames at Sea, Grease, and a six-year run of the successful Yukon review Beaver Creek Rendezvous.
In addition to her theatre experience, Nancy toured Canada with bands Axess and Renaissance, appeared in Singapore as guest vocalist with WEA recording artists The Lovehunters, and an uncanny ability to sing in different languages landed her a month long gig performing at the Palace of the Sultan of Brunei.
In 1998 Nancy released her first CD, the self- titled Nancy Ruth, a critically acclaimed album of her own compositions on the Roca label. Returning to her love of the standard song, she released her second CD, It’s Got to Be Love in 2004.
The latest CD, Me Quedo, is a mix of original and Latin favourites.
