The music career of Ruth Berhe (Ruth B), a contemporary singer and songwriter, began in unintended fashion. In December 2014, the Edmonton, Alberta native posted a clip to video-sharing network Vine, in which she could be heard singing a sorrowful original melody with lyrics inspired by the dramatic fairy-tale series Once Upon a Time. The clip's popularity encouraged her to write a full song, "Lost Boy." A performance was uploaded the following month to YouTube, and a studio version was eventually made available for download. "Lost Boy" prompted covers by many aspiring musicians, and it also earned the interest of major-label Columbia, who signed Berhe in July 2015. By the end of the year, The Intro -- a four-song EP completed during two days at a Brooklyn studio -- was released for streaming and downloading. It featured "Lost Boy," as well as three other songs consisting of just her voice and keyboards. Ruth Berhe (born July 2, 1995), better known as Ruth B, is a Canadian singer-songwriter from Edmonton, Alberta. She started by singing songs on Vine in early 2013. In January 2015, she released her debut single, "Lost Boy", which first started off as a singing Vine she had made up. In November 2015, she released her debut EP, The Intro. She is signed with Columbia Records.
