Ruth Geerse is a Dutch singer, composer, pianoplayer and guitarplayer. Throughout the years Ruth sang in many different settings; from rockband to Big Band, soulband and as a singer songwriter accompanying herself on piano and guitar. In 2002 Ruth graduated from Rotterdam Conservatory and since then she played on the Uitmarkt, Vondelpark Openluchttheater, several Jazzfestivals and reached Finale Grote Prijs van Nederland Singer Songwriter.

What is striking about Ruth is that she vocally combines many styles in music in one style; powerful Ruth style. She has soul power and features jazz timing. Her strong lyrics show that she’s not only a singer and musician, but also a gifted writer who makes you think twice about certain facts of life.

Since 2017 she found the perfect setting to express herself and sing and arrange her own songs; a mix of Pop, Jazz and Latin with Dirkjan de Koning on drums and Guus van Beelen on bassguitar. Ruth writes the songs, sings and plays the piano.
