Wouldn't it be Nice
Last year in the middle of GVs tour in support of Let Those Who Have Ears Hear we played at Tomfest in WA. While walking on the dirt roads i heard a sound check involving harmonica which was a far stretch from all the screamo i had been hearing 10am till 3am the past 2 days OUCH. So i walk down to the left out door stage to see these boys begin their set. RUTH is their name-0 as an acronym for 'Return Us To Him' as their mission statement. The lead singer had a Jon Foreman kinda voice and the music was a pop/rock, so i stopped by for the entire set and just loved em up :D This week the tune of stuck rewind is 'Mr. Turner' from their record "Secondhand Dreaming" oh and can you believe they're signed to Tooth and Nail? nothing like a T & N band. You may have heard them on tour last year with Relient K and Switchfoot during the Rebuild Tour. I feel instantly lifted up when i listen to these tunes, i just have to smile. The music isn't crazy complicated and i'm not blown away by them, but I dig them so much.
