Ruth Brosnan is a singer, songwriter and musician from Cork, Ireland. Following on from completion of her studies in Cork School of Music where she graduated with a First Class Honors BA in Popular Music in June 2018, she moved to Los Angeles on a graduate visa to learn more about the music business.

Her debut single Good Enough was launched across multiple music platforms including Spotify and Youtube. It also garnered huge exposure on radio stations and across popular music blogs.
IndulgeMe made the song their ‘Track of the week’. Pure Magazine had her at number one on their Spotlight Chart. “The extremely moving track and accompanying video came from a very personal place”- Hotpress.
“I wrote this song from my own life experience. I lost my mother to suicide in 2010 when I was fourteen years of age. In Ireland and many other countries there has been an increase in suicide rates with worrying increases among younger people. Mental health and wellness are really important and I want to increase awareness."
“Good Enough is a powerful contemporary pop song which is packed full of emotion that inspires the listener to rid themselves of negative thoughts and presents them with a soul lifting energy”.-Bayview Sounds.
Ruth’s follow-up single Toodle-oo featured a fun, energetic dance routine. It received thousands of streams and gained great traction online with the music video generating over 280,000 views.
“ With it’s ultra-catchy chorus, sassy lyrics and melodic production, it combines all the elements of a summer pop-dance anthem, whilst having a serious message at its heart.”- Fab UK Magazine
“The song is about saying goodbye to negative people in our lives that we do not need anymore. People in all walks of life experience this negativity. It often requires a lot of courage to say goodbye and move on.” It explores the themes of strength, independence and overcoming adversity with a focus on female empowerment.
Her latest single Electric Gold was released on November 20th 2020 and reached number 3 on the iTunes chart within 24 hours. It also received tens of thousands of views on Youtube, Facebook and Spotify as well as national and international radio play. Electric Gold is a high energy, up-tempo, pop dance track. It is influenced by 80s style music combined with modern electronic elements. Ruth was inspired to write the song during the global COVID-19 pandemic. It is a song of hope and provides an escape in uncertain times. It is a song of survival through social isolation. An animated music video accompanies the song and takes you on a journey of discovery. It's about realizing that we are all our own heroes and will overcome these tough times and emerge together stronger. It is a shot of adrenaline to everyone who has been doing their best to help suppress the virus and an acknowledgement to frontline staff. The song is available to stream on all music platforms. You can watch the music video on Vevo/Youtube/Facebook/IGTV.
The upbeat energetic pop dance song pulls me towards the liking of the hit song Flashdance from the 80’s with deep bass, synth lines and what sounds like a timpani incorporated within the pop beat; and who doesn’t like Flashdance; what. feeling!
