Ahead of the release of her new single, 'Turn This Around', on 3rd March, emerging Bulgarian soul songstress Ruth Koleva has released a video for the track, which can be watched below.
Having already taken her native country by storm, 2014 is the year that this young artist becomes renowned on an international scale. Born into a volatile world of corruption and hardship in post-Communist Eastern Europe, Ruth found salvation in the classics (Marvin Gaye, Ella Fitzgerald, Nat King Cole) and quickly developed into a rounded musician and became an ambassador for the best of Bulgaria – winning GRAZIA's Woman of the Year.
Koleva's ability to straddle multiple genres and tempos has made her into a highly versatile artist, which has seen her draw comparisons her contemporary, Jessie Ware. As a vocalist, her tone is imbued with warmth, particularly when speaking on matters of love and sensuality. Inspired by such era-defining artists as Erykah Badu and Jill Scott, Ruth manages to both tip her hat to the classics which have informed her sound, while still saying something new and pushing boundaries.
Ahead of the release of her new single, Ruth has made new album track 'What Am I Supposed To' available as a free download which can be downloaded and embedded via the link below.
