Already getting fantastic reviews for the new work, & storming her hometown of Calgary,
Ruth will be promoting the record with a tour in Alberta, & then headed across Canada by mid
May with her sister, Esther Purves-Smith, to coincide with the digital & International release.
“Ruth Purves Smith & the 581 return with Faster Than the
Speed of Dark, an equally complex and satisfying creation
featuring another eleven songs that breathe with the life
of Alberta’s prairie shadowed by clouds of trepidation.
Faster Than the Speed of Dark is more than another country
album; there are moments of rock & roll aggression.”
