On the release date of her debut album Safe Haven, SOCAN presents an interview with SOCAN member Ruth B, taped during the 2017 JUNO Awards Week, where she won Breakthrough Artist of the Year.

In our brief conversation, Ruth B (Berhe) discusses her three JUNO nominations; moving her songs out of her bedroom and onto the stage; playing live with her band; staying centred in the hurricane of fame; her recording process for Safe Haven; her songwriting process; and what’s up for the rest of 2017.
