Artist Spotlight

The Rua

"Fight for What's Right"

You won't forget the first time you heard The Rua. It will be on a day such as this when nothing feels right and it seems like as good an idea as any to fill the silence with reason. Songs very rarely make you stand up and sing but Fight For What’s Right and Stand Out and Into The Crowd and Follow just might. And you could stand here all day and say that The Rua sound like this and The Rua sound like that but it wouldn't get you anywhere – you'd still be standing up and singing. Rua means essence of a group – or at least, “we found a meaning from the Hebrew word Ruah with an h at the end and we really liked it but we didn’t like the h” - and the essence of The Rua are all members of the same family: 22 year old year old chanteuse Roseanna Brown provides voice and guitar, 24 year old Alanna Brown is responsible for piano and backing vocals and 19 year old Jonathan Brown plays violin and guitar and provides vocals and backing vocals. Of course, a further investigation of rua reveals that the word has a myriad of Gaelic connections and certainly the band have Irish blood flowing through their collective veins. Having said that, The Rua all live in the same house near Windsor, England and yes, you guessed it, they’ve spent most New Year and Xmas holidays back in the Emerald Isle. And, no, they’re not the new Monkees.
