The Canadian singer-songwriter, Ruth B‘s first single is entitled “Lost Boy.” It can be found on her debut EP, “The Intro” released late last year. She originally put out the song on her own but Columbia Records very quickly scooped her up and so, she will be releasing her forthcoming album through them.
The 20-year-old began posting videos to Vine in 2013 where her singing Vines (typically six second covers of popular songs) helped grow her a following.
When asked about the evolution of “Lost Boy”, Ruth B explains, “When I initially posted the ‘Lost Boy’ Vine there was no song. It was just some words I threw together to a catchy melody. Once I saw the reaction to the vine I thought, ‘Maybe I should turn this into a full song.’ So I sat down one day and wrote the song.” I wanted there to be more to the track than the cast of children’s classic. I made sure that it wasn’t just about Peter Pan, fairies and pixie dust,” Ruth continues. “I figured that some people were going to listen to it, so I wanted to make sure it had a message. Something that people could take away from it. Everyone gets lonely and everyone needs a friend. You’re bound to feel lost at some point in your life. It’s a universal feeling.”
