Bitter Ruin formed in 2007 in Brighton when Ben Richards and Georgia Train met at music school. Although the pair understood each other musically, they had dramatically opposing musical tastes. Georgia had a history in Musical Theatre and Art, she listened to the likes of Fiona Apple, Regina Spektor and The Talking Heads whereas Ben preferred Rock, with the occasional tortured writer; Jeff Buckley and Metallica. However, their main bond as musicians was their Classical training. Bitter Ruin come from a background of weekly piano lessons and ‘Royal School of Music’ exams.
So the music has ended up somewhat eclectic and Bitter Ruin themselves describe it as ‘Contemporary Expressionism’ meaning that the style of music will change continuously as the lyrics, emotion and purpose of expression does. The most important feature of the music is it’s passion and sincerity.
