I Won't Apologize
Artist: Ruth Greenwood
Title: I Won't Apologize
There's no need for Singer-Songwriter Ruth Greenwood to apologize for her debut CD, I Won't Apologize. Among one of the many talented songwriters in New Jersey, Ruth Greenwood makes an exceptionally strong debut. With gripping, well-crafted lyrics and music, beautiful guitar and mandolin work along with Ruth's natural, raw and emotional vocals - every song on this CD sizzles.
Greenwood deals with all facets of love in her CD, from losing love in "Wish I'd Known" and "Indian Summer" to unrequited love in "I Won't Apologize" and "What Is," to the joys and passion of love in "Hot" and "One." A wife and mother, Ruth also deals with family life in songs such as "Family Circus" and the lack of love in one of my favorite songs on the CD, called, "Debt."
"A little red-haired boy in a Yogi Bear T-shirt sits on the concrete stairs/
It's too dark to read his comic book - but his mama said "Stay there!" /
She gives him food and shelter but she don't realize/ she's gotta listen
to his story, look deep into his eyes / Damn that debt she makes him
pay/ That mama who didn't care much/ Mad at that daddy who didn't stay/
He pays in tenderness that she don't show / Cause she don't know how to
give what she didn't get / So a little boy pays / Damn that debt…
Nashville-based session man Danny Parks did an amazing job on the guitar and mandolin work on the CD and Producer Kim Copeland, who co-produced the album along with Ruth Greenwood, also did an excellent job as well.
