I’ve always been passionate about song writing,  for me it’s a way of communicating. It’s my expression and how I interpret the world around me. – Ruth Royall

1. Home is where your story begins please tell us a little about yours…

I’m headed there now, having spent the past two weeks in Alaska and New Mexico. Right now we’re losing the battle with driveway ice. It’s been a hard winter. Luckily it’s a small house, easy to keep it warm enough. It’s in my town, Milwaukee, where I’m mostly a civilian: I don’t play there much.

2. How would you best describe your musical style?

American music. There’s blues, rock and roll, roots, folk, even some jazz in it. Obviously there’s more than just that, too- I listen pretty widely. Poetry, post-modern classical, Joseph Campbell lectures, all added to Tom Waits, Radiohead, Los Lobos. And of course, my colleagues: Chris Smither, Kris Delmhorst, the Suitcase Junket, Anais Mitchell…

Music can be pretty personal and I’ve grown out of a lot of the Tortured Artist guff that clings to sensitive young fellas.
