As a performing artist, Susan Ruth released two critically acclaimed albums, How To Say Goodbye and Surfacing to Breathe (which features many of Peter Gabriel’s key band mates) following her debut album, Horse of a Different Color EP. Her fourth independent studio album, All I Ever Wanted Was Everything, released July 15th, 2014
Co-produced by Susan Ruth and Jim Kimball, the new album includes 13 original songs written or co-written by Susan. The album was created at Hot Closet Studios in Nashville, Tennessee.
Although Nashville is famous for its country roots and All I Ever Wanted Was Everything features many of Reba McIntyre’s key band mates, including Kimball (guitars/mando), Jeff King (lead guitar), Spady Brannon (bass), Tommy Harden (drums), as well as other exceptional Nashville session players, including Jason Webb (piano/keys), Jim Hoke, Tania Hancheroff (bgvs) and a handful of other talents, it is primarily a AAA/Pop format and has been getting comparisons to Colbie Caillat and Annie Lennox. Chris Gehringer of Sterling Sound in New York mastered the project. This is Susan Ruth’s first studio album in a decade (Surfacing to Breathe Aug 2004).
This is Susan Ruth’s first studio album in a decade, as she has spent the past eight years in Nashville, TN writing for and with other artists. She's had chart success on several acts, including:
#13 Eurodisc - "What If" - Ali Isabella
