Scott Ruth has released his latest single “Are You There,” a track produced by acclaimed indie folk musician Noah Gundersen. Check out the alternative rocker here:
Ruth is an L.A.-based singer-songwriter who finds himself for the first time not self-producing a project. He worked with Gundersen and engineer Andy Parks, allowing Ruth to have more creative freedom and a new perspective. The song was recorded at X Studios in Seattle, and follows the American songwriting style of Tom Petty and Bruce Springsteen while lyrically focusing on the void left behind in a past relationship.
“The song is about that feeling you get when someone who was once a huge part of your life, suddenly isn’t there anymore and all the things that go through your head,” Ruth said. “Wondering what they’re doing, if they’re feeling what you’re feeling.”
Ruth was formerly a part of the L.A. indie rock band The Futures League where he provided bass. He has since furthered his craft as a multi-instrumentalist and producer. Last year, he released his solo debut “The Weight of It All” and toured extensively for it supporting Noah Gundersen as well as headlining his own shows.
“I’m now in a different chapter of my life, and I couldn’t be more excited to get the rest of these songs out in the open,” Ruth said.
