Album Notes
Recorded over the course of three days in Northern California, Underwater and Other Places chronicles Melissa's earliest songs. Penned during her late teens and early 20s, the songs on Underwater showcase the undeniable potential of this young artist.

Ruth is backed by a band of close friends and family members that proves to be as versatile as the music itself. Recorded live in one room with no over-dubs or re-takes, Underwater maintains a raw touch, unencumbered by heavy production. The resulting work shows a maturity in artistry and plays like a live house show might: intimate and engaging.

"Melissa Ruth’s latest album Underwater & Other Places, shows that this classically trained musician has the skills and creativity to join the ranks of superb folk artists...."
-Nancy Dunham, Indie-Music, September 2008
