“Ruth Copland is what is known as a Triple Threat, in that she writes, sings and plays and does it on a level that is world class. I was lucky to meet Ruth a few years back and together we produced a handful of songs that to this day I am proud to be associated with. She is at home on the stage and in the studio and has a clear sense of who she is as a person and an artist”.
