Ruth Mac

Alternative // Kinvara, Galway // she/her

Ruth Mac a vocalist, songwriter and musician from Galway, Ireland now based in Berlin. Her debut EP Living Room was released in 2021 on Beth Shalom Records.

With a sound described as “idiosyncratic soul-infused indie”, Mac’s music ties an engaging simplicity with thoughtful, slightly off-kilter lyricism. Drawing influence in equal measure from the folkstresses of the seventies and contemporary rock, Mac’s distinctly raw vocals bring a folk-inspired intimacy to effervescent indie tunes.

Mac’s music has been supported by the likes of Nialler9, Paste, HotPress and The Last Mixed Tape and radio support from Dublin City FM, 8Radio and IndiePop Takeout. Following the release of her debut EP, Mac spent 2022 bringing her live show to Ireland, UK, and Germany, including support slots for English synth-pop legends Hot Chip and Irish folk duo Ye Vagabonds.

With the remainder of 2023 bringing new music and live dates across Ireland, Germany and the Netherlands, Ruth Mac’s journey is one to watch.
