Judging from her credentials as a singing teacher--she has taught singing and songwriting as a Forbes College Fellow at Princeton University, and at he Blue Bear School of Music--Ruth undoubtedly has the ability to record hit songs with broad appeal. But instead she focuses on more somber folk style--"murder ballads" is how she describes her compositions--that suits the seriousness of her subject matter. Her new album also includes songs written by country crooners Bobbie Gentry and Dolly Parton.
Gerson urges fans to make a donation directly to non-profit organizations; these fans will receive a copy of her new album in return. More information can be found at her website, http://www.ruthgerson.com/. Deceived drops this week.
