About Ruth

“Ruth Blake’s songs are a true wonder.
Her voice bathes over me as if I have soaked
myself in a healing sound-shower.”
– Steve Lee, Gfm

Ethereal songstress Ruth Blake carries her audiences on powerful wings across lyrical skies, through ever-changing landscapes that prise open our hearts, weaving an ancient yet ever-present magic to heal and awaken the wounded soul towards ecstasy. In one moment simple, hypnotic guitar riffs, crystalline vocal melodies, and harmonies both subtle and strange lead us open-eyed into the mystery; at another her wild spirit calls our human community to unite with rousing lyrics, joyful insight and irresistible refrains –  inspiring us to return to the truth of the heart.

Haunting, playful, bitter or sweet; tender, broken, fierce and wild; poetic lyricism rich in symbol and storytelling, these are songs of earth and sky, of being and not being, of one and of many, remembering and forgetting, celebration and mourning, prayers of the ancestors and of the generations to come.

Her uniquely eclectic sound earns her comparisons to a wide array of artists including Joni Mitchell, Ayla Nereo, Katie Melua, and Tina Malia, with a little bit of wild more akin to Florence, and PJ Harvey.

A fierce advocate for self-knowledge, authenticity, and the dissolution of hierarchy, Ruth is increasingly working to help people explore and heal their relationship with their own voices, creativity and self expression.

Ruth has just released her second studio album, Creation, and her first album, Lullabies for Grown-Ups is also widely available.

“With its delicate harmonies, Ruth Blake’s music seems to emanate from a waking dream. Her compositions are made of shades of love, sweetness and strength.”
David MboussouFilm Director

“Ruth Blake is producing some of the most beautiful music I have heard in a long time.”

John LimeGlastonbury FM

“As with her William Blake’s, Ruth Blake’s are visionary works that defy categorisation or label.”

Album Lyrics

Seeds

Here inside your heart, a seed, I’ve planted
Deep into the flesh where nature beats her drum of peace
Here beneath the earth I lie awake
My bones are aching as I grow
My rose you’ll pick
Your thorns I’ll sew
Each finger pricked
And so we grow again, grow again
And so we grow again
And so it goes

Here inside your arms
I shelter from the night
Safe beneath your canopy
Leaves are falling, winter calling me
Leaves are falling, winter calling me
Here beneath the stars
These tangled roots of love
Lay me down, my heart does beat
Winds are blowing, you’re still showing me

There’s not a day, not a day doesn’t die
There’s not a night doesn’t come alive
There’s not a yours, not a yours, not a mine
Just the seeds of a love divine

Breathe

Breathe in and nourish every cell, feel their vibration
Breathe in this flourish of divine and pure elation
You are children of the light
There’s a loving heart inside you
May the beauty of the night
Fill your eyes with stars
With stars to guide you

Mmm mmm mmm mm…

Breathe out, my love, for there’s nothing to hold on to
Breathe out, my love, don’t be afraid of where you’ve gone to
In the shadows of your mind
Though you fear the black that binds you
Here your infinite becoming
Purest emptiness
Holy light shall shine through

Mmm mmm mmm mm…

Be open, gentle and strong
Joyfully sing
Rejoicing we bring insight
Be open, gentle and strong
In and all around you
Sweet spaciousness resides

Breathe slowly, rockabye baby, how I love you
Holding hands with the angels high above you
Oh this world is but a dream
Let us row the boat together
For the lonely wolf has been
And now our time has come
Behold

How Can I Tell You?

How can I tell you, my love
Of the sweetness you bring to my life?
I’ll sing to the sky
As we sleep
The moon has her way with the sea
And you’re lying here next to me
And my heart is a star
Blazing fire twinkling from afar
And my heart is a star
Upon it I pray that you’ll be safe

(Chorus)
And way up in the sky
They say the angels fly
Dancing with the moon
Always the same tune
And way off in the clouds
Where dreams are lost and found
It’s plain as day to see
Hearts can be set free

How can I tell you, my love,
Of the sweetness you bring to my life?
I’ll sing to the sky
As we sleep
The moon has her way with the sea
And you’re lying here next to me
And my heart is a star
Blazing fire twinkling from afar
And my heart is a star
Upon it I pray that you’ll be safe
Safe
Always

Chorus

You are sunshine, you are rain
You are the dancing stars that teach us to sing again
You are sunshine, you are rain
You are the dancing stars that teach us to sing again
You are sunshine, you are rain
And you teach us,
You teach us to sing

How can I tell you, my love,
Of the sweetness you bring to my life?
I’ll sing to the sky

Fear Not

Fear not, my beloved, though the wind blows, wind blows
Fear not, my beloved, for you shall be carried home
Fear not, my beloved, though you’re hurting so, hurting so
Fear not, my beloved, for you shall be carried home

(Chorus)

We are born from love and born to love
We are born from love and born to love
We are born from love and born to love
We are born in love and borne on love

Fear not, my beloved, though you want to know and don’t want to know
Fear not, my beloved, for you shall be carried home
Fear not my beloved, though the wind blows and you’re hurting so
Want to know and don’t want to know and you want to go home

Chorus

Fear not, my beloved, though the wind blows, wind blows
Fear not, my beloved, for you shall be carried home
Fear not, my beloved, though the wind blows, wind blows
Wind blows, wind blows and you want to go home

Chorus

I love to live and live to love
I love to live and live to love
I love to live and live to love
I love to live and live to love

Fear not, my beloved, for you shall be carried home

Mamacita

Here in the forest where I dwell
I’ve gathered secrets I can tell
Great serpent coil around the tree
Shed the skin of you and me
Though you don’t see me I can dance
Though you don’t hear me I can sing
For the there’s a song in everything

And as I dance this twisted dance
I call you in your dreams
Unpick you at your seams

Mamacita mama, mamacita mama, mamacita mama
Mamacita mama, mamacita mama…

I taste of bitter and of sweet
And with a sickness I can treat
And though my love is deep and wide
Most who come here fear to die
For I’m the medicine you fight
I am the tunnel and the light
Both reality and dream
Dreamer wake and waking
Be the dream you seek in me
Be the dream I weave in thee
Be the dream of dreams your born to be

Mamacita mama, mamacita mama, mamacita mama
Mamacita mama, mamacita mama

Maria

Fall as the leaf falls
She trusts the ground beneath her
With no belief at all
She finds the ground beneath her
Such surrender
She flutters in the breeze
Who pulls and tugs for her release
Til she falls, she floats, to dance below

Grow as the grass grows
Reaching for the sun
And even when cut and downtrodden
His roots grow on
Such grace
‘Neath every footstep he bows
Yet every chance he gets to rise again and wave up to the light, he will

(Chorus)
For the river forever flow for’d to the sea
Calling “Maria!”
Force of the water caught within thee
Ever to flow and to receive
Om

See as the heart sees
With love
No judgment in her eyes, no cloudy thoughts to think of
Such strength
With every heartbeat she feels
Yet every chance she gets to love afresh
And dive to depths of trust, she will

Chorus

Mirror Light

If you think I’m beautiful
It’s because you’re beautiful
And if I wanna be like you
Somewhere inside I’m like you

‘Cause the light that you see in my eyes is the mirror light
Shining the light of your beautiful love
And the beauty I see as you move and you breathe
Is the beauty of life and it moves within me too

If you just can’t forgive me
Then you just can’t forgive you
And if you hate me today
Darlin’ I feel your pain

‘Cause the flaws that you find in my body and mind
Are just signs of the judgment and fault that you find in yourself
Where there’s blame, we can’t be the same
And there lies the pain as we separate in two

‘Cause in this face is every face and every life
And in these eyes is every tear and every smile
And my mistake is your mistake, my crime your crime
And as we wake, illusion breaks, there’s only one dancing
And in this heart is every star dissolving time
And in these eyes the mirror light shines
And in these eyes the mirror light shines
And in these eyes the mirror light shines

If you think someone’s better than you
then you’ve dropped from your centre, it’s true
And the only thing that stands in your way
Is the shadow of doubt and fear you’re creating
The shadow of doubt your fear is creating
Just a shadow of fear

‘Cause the difference you see in between you and me’s
Like the difference ‘twixt stars and in each blade of grass
Though they each tell their tale, some bright and some pale
Some tall and some small and some strong and some frail
Well we’re all made of music, each magical fuse lit
With earth, water, air, golden fire, and a prayer sent from
God
Only knows where…
From God only knows where

You Belong

The road is dark, the road is long
So I invite you sing this song
Know in your heart that you belong

Come follow me, come follow me, come
Join hands and rejoice hearts, you belong

Way above the sun, an empty sky
Way beyond the stars I’ve come to fly
Deep inside my heart, beyond my mind
One people, we’re one ocean of light
One people, we’re one ocean of light
One people, we’re one ocean of light

Wings of Grace

The moon, she loves the sun
She knows that he’s the one
She’ll never touch his skin
But feels his fire within
She’ll never hold him in her arms
They’ll always walk on different paths

On wings of grace, he pulls her to him as she dances
They fall through space, he draws her to him as she dance
On wings of grace

The earth, she loves the sky
It never even crossed her mind to wonder why
His breath to her divine
Refreshing, cleansing, breath of life
And when he speaks, she sings
Of trees that whisper, laughing springs

On wings of grace, he’s always with her as she dances
And face to face, he’s breathing with her as she dances
On wings of grace

The storm, she loves the rain
He always seems to know just what to say
And when she laughs, he laughs
And when she cries for all things past
He wraps her pain in his icy skin
And melting pours down the love within

On wings of grace, he gives his body as she dances
On wings of grace, he is her body as she dances
Their wildest place, they share one body as she dances
On wings of grace

Little Bird

Out of the silence, hear her sing
This little bird of sorrow
Her song so simple, bittersweet
The song of all tomorrows
And her eyes awash with tears
Healing waters, so crystal clear

Little bird, little bird
Little bird, little bird

Pajarita, canta! Pajarita, encanta!
Pajarita, canta! Pajarita, encanta!

Only in darkness is there light
In blackest night, stars shining
And the moon, in silver white
Her gaze so soft and smiling
Her reflection of the day
Purest mirror, light the way

Little light, little light
Little dark, little light

La lunita, refleja! La lunita, refleja!
La lunita, refleja! La lunita, refleja!

Here in my body lies a key
This little heart, so tender
And if I listen, she speaks to me
With words of sweet surrender
In the darkest place of me
Where the rhythm and stillness meet

Little heart, little heart
Little heart, little heart

Corazoncito, laté! Corazoncito, laté!
Corazoncito, laté! Corazoncito, laté, laté, laté, laté!

Little bird, your voice so bright
You sing of darkness and of light
You sing that night is day, and black is white
You tell me there’s no wrong and there’s no right
You tell me there’s no wrong and there’s no right
You tell me there’s no wrong and there’s no right

Excalibur

Excalibur
(Ruth Blake – vocals, guitar, Larry Lloyd – guitar, Tristan Stibbards – darbukka, shaker, tambourine, Ben Capp – u-bass)

Excalibur I know you, shining in the light of eternal truth
Mightiest protector, why do I project all my fears on you?
Reaching up I hold you, and yet I’ve sold you so many times
Cut away illusion and all the bonds of these endless lies

Simple truth, why do I waiver?
Sword of truth, why am I afraid?

I like to think I’m honest but come to make my protest
I hang my head
Searching for the courage to express my no and yes
Calling the father within me to stand his ground
Steady his river banks guide mother water
She’s flowing, flowing home
He’s guiding, guide me home, da da da da da

Guide me home, else that I waiver
True freedom, bringer of the light
Trusted sword straight from the heavens
Make my heart steady and bright

Excalibur I love you, shine in the light of eternal truth
Mightiest protector, from the heights connect me down
to the roots
Reaching up I hold you and though I’ve sold you so many times
Cut away illusion, teach me to accept all I am inside

Trust and freedom from the heavens, bringer of the light
Oh let me not, oh let me not, oh let me not waiver
Oh let me no-ee, oh let me not waiver

Oh bringer of the truth and the light
And the stars in the sky always shine in the night
And the love in your eyes is the light of a life that never dies
Trusted sword straight as an arrow
Oh my heart, steady and bright

Forge & Flow

Forge & Flow

Forge and flow with the water
Winding and free, so infinitely
Forge and flow with the river to the sea

Laugh and sing with the sunshine
Playful and bright, so warm in the light
Laugh and sing with the blazing sunshine

Dance and inspire with the tempest
Transforming air, this breath that we share
Dance and inspire with the tempest, fierce and wild

Grow and bear fruit with the forest
Walk on the earth, meet death and rebirth
Grow and bear fruit with the forest and the soil

Na na na na na na na…

Dissolving

Dissolving
(Ruth Blake – vocals, guitar, indian bells, David Nassim – vocals, Ben Capp – floor tom)

Red White & Black

Red White & Black
(Ruth Blake – vocals, guitar, David Nassim – charango, Ben Capp – drum kit)

Show me your courage
Show me you’re made of more than sugar cane
And summer rain
Show me the storms that rage in the night of your soul

Show me your pain
Show how she cuts you again, and again
Show me your fire
That you’re not afraid to erase, to annihiliate
Raze it and start again

Show me the red, white, black of your name
Don’t hold it back coz you’re wild, you can roar
Don’t try to act all small, coz you’re not and that’s a trap
You can soar to the sun

We are a, we are a wheel
We are a wheel turning
We are the innocent ones eternally learning
We are the, we are the earth, we are the sky calling
We are the sun and the moon
We are the stars falling

We are the God that we’re seeking
So listen up coz we’re speaking
We’re saying, “Come on, let’s answer some of these prayers we’ve been praying…”
What are we waiting for?
What are we waiting for?

I know you’re sorry
I feel you’re sorry for all the pain you’ve caused
But know that you’re all that ever was
And whatever was lost is found and will come around
In the night of your soul

While as the fire burns bright, the night is passing

Over the fields I see my sisters dancing
And all the flowers join in, I watch them swaying
And though my heart cries, all the birds are laughing
Calling in the sunrise, they are celebrating

Chorus

Middle 8
Oh Spirit know, Spirit see through me, through my dreams

Verse 3
Over the bridge, my brothers they are building
Around them forests and green, green clover growing now
There was a vision, once on the horizon
Of a new dawn breaking, and a fresh wind blowing

Chorus

Ya kuku malé lé, lé
Ya kuku male lé
Ya kuku male lé, malé lé lé
Ya kuku malé wo

I Am

I Am

Verse 1
I am the sparkling dust in the sunlight
I am the round sun
I am the morning mist and the breathing of evening
I am the whispering wind in the orchard
And the surf on the cliff
I am the bowed head and the pardon
Both love and the heart that has hardened

I am the fear, the pain and the tears of your loss
I am the time, the void and the line you’ll never cross

I am the dusty dreams of old
Won’t you come and find me?

Chorus
Look to the skies
See your own eyes
And out to the sea
Hear your heart’s mystery
And the trees and the earth
Sing of our rebirth
Mmm mm mm mm mm
Hail to the Sun
Hail, hail, hail, hail to the God in everyone!
For I am the question that burns in your mind
I am the space as the words fall behind
I am a crumbling concept of time

Verse 2
I am the sweetest taste, I am bitter
I am the curling tongue
I am the calling bird and the unfurling of wings
I am the coldest water falling
And the gift of Spring I am the prayer that you whisper each night
And the loving arms holding you tight

I am the sign, the bread and the wine of your flesh
I am the crime, both reason and rhyme of innocence

I am the dusty dreams of old
Won’t you come and find me?

Chorus

I am I am I am I am I…..

I Will Break

I Will Break
(Ruth Blake – vocals, guitar, Tristan Stibbards – udu, shaker, tambourine, Ben Capp – u-bass, David Nassim – charango)

Verse 1
I had a dream, listen, oh listen!
I couldn’t see the slightest light glisten
And I was afraid, I couldn’t escape
The demons were coming for me
Why such demons are coming for me?

Verse 2
Then from below, a stir and a wiggle
My fingers and toes did wriggle and jiggle
And a great cry did bellow and wail
A goddess inside had something to say
From the infinite fire I found in my tail

Chorus
I will break like the waves
Nothing left and nothing saved
And with a crash almighty, a rumble of thunder
The starfish will wonder if everything’s starting again

Verse 3
And with a flash of lightning, the frightening old
Demons did crash in a heap, no more fighting
Just piles of ash so rich for the garden of
Flowers that’s growing now here in my heart
They dance in the light though they sing of the dark

Verse 4
And a new song I sing for the fear
When it’s crushing my tongue and trapping my tears
I just follow the drum beat down to my soul
Where I find all but nothingness makes up the whole
And broken we open to treasures untold

Middle 8
So I’ll give it some welly from my belly
Give it some juice, let it loose
Give it my all and smash down the walls
Om Kali Kali as she calls

Chorus

These Loving Arms

These Loving Arms
(Ruth Blake – vocals, guitar, Larry Lloyd – guitar, David Nassim – vocals, charango, Ben Capp – floor tom)

Verse 1
Circle of brothers
Finding yourselves in the eyes of each other
Singing the songs of your fathers’s grandfathers
Calling out from your hearts,
‘Entrust us.’

Verse 2
Circle of sisters
Cleansing the blood of the oceans and rivers
Give of your bodies to nourish the others
Crying out from your hearts,
‘Please see us.’

Bridge
I pray that you know yourself
That you love yourself
Feel these loving arms around you
And I pray, oh that you feel safe
Find your wings of grace
And your courage rise to meet you

Chorus
Mm weya nay hey yo way…

Verse 3
Tribes of the forest
Carry the wisdom of those gone before us
All you’ve protected so sacred and cherished
Calling us from your hearts,
‘Return to us.’

Verse 4
Father and mother
Union of opposites merging together
Spirit of Heaven meet body of Gaia
Song of creation sounds
Within us

Bridge
Chorus

Happy Samhain one and all. Gratitude to the ancestors; to all life that has come before, that has led us each to this blessed moment. Give us the courage to embrace Mother Death, remembering she holds the key to eternal life, as the Snake eternally devours its tail. My humble gratitude to the ancient ones, the mythic ones, the archetypical ones, who remind us of these great patterns circling round and round; and to Baba Yaga for keeping me close to the medicine of death, and teaching me to ever tend the fires of the soul.

I'm very happy to share this video from the live stream of last night's concert, the launch of my Creation at The King Arthur I'm Glastonbury. It was a beautiful night because so many people brought their incredible gifts to the table, including the wonderful audience who brought their hearts ready to receive. I'm truly swimming with gratitude (as well as feeling that strange post-gig rawness that other performers will be familiar with). THANK YOU to everyone involved for making it such a special night 💕Creation has been well and truly launched! 💫 Next stop - Manchester! 💥

Baba Yaga!
youtu.be/Elty2p6LA9Y

Amazing new video by Chloe Purcell for my new single, thought I would share it again in case anyone's missed it!

This story is SO important and SO powerful, I remember a version from my childhood, but came across it again in Clarissa Pinkola Estés' life changing soul saving book, Women Who Run With The Wolves a few years back. Chloe and I were both so affected by the book as a whole, and felt a deep and powerful connection to Baba Yaga, and for me also to La Loba, she who collects the bones and sings them into new forms, new lives... These archetypes both weave their way through the song.

Since I wrote and began to sing this song, my life has been a continuous series of falling aparts. Sometimes when i am crumbled amidst the ashes yet again, I ask myself if I should perhaps consider not singing it any more! And I always come back to the same answer, again and again - difficult though this path is, I have never once regretted the new life that grows from those ashes. I am always grateful to be lighter, freeer, clearer in my sight and my mind, fuller in my heart and soul. Each time I have been relieved of an old skin that was too tight. Baba Yaga is a fierce and terrifying ally it's true, but as with Mother Death, there's really no point in fighting her, so you may as well lay a place at your table and stick the kettle on ☕Original Song by Ruth Blake from album 'Creation', released September 2018.
