Canadian singer and songwriter, Ruth B, brought her headlining tour to S.P.A.C.E. in Evanston, IL last night, hitting the road in support of her brand new debut LP, Safe Haven. Performing tracks from her new album for her Chicago-area fans, Ruth B, has impressed us ever since her performance at the Chicago Theatre last year with Alessia Cara, and tonight was no exception.

What’s perhaps most impressive about Ruth B is her writing, which says a lot since she kills it on the piano and her voice is candy for your ears. Since Ruth emerged into the pop music scene with her hit single ‘Lost Boy’, she has been prepping for the release of her new album, which Ruth wrote and composed all 12 tracks herself, along with producers Joel Little and Mike Elizondo.

While keeping fans engaged throughout the performance, highlights of Ruth’s set included her performances of ‘Superficial Love’ and her newest single ‘If This is Love’, and of course ‘Lost Boy’, which her fans sang with her from start to finish.

Bringing her headlining tour to one of the more unrepresented cities in the Chicago area, fans were treated to an intimate performance with a rising star. Evidenced by her songwriting and production, Ruth B has a connection to her music that most pop artists aren’t able to match, and her audience gets to benefit as a result.

After a memorable performance at The Metro months ago, Canadian singer/songwriter Alessia Cara returned to Chicago for Part II of her Know-It-All Tour, with an even bigger performance at the historic Chicago Theatre. And as an treat to fans, this time around Cara brought two talented emerging artists on the current leg of her tour, with Ruth B and Nathan Sykes.

Up first for the night was English singer, Nathan Sykes, first known for being a member of the British boy band, The Wanted. Now focused on his solo career, Nathan has been an exciting emerging name in music since he teamed up with Ariana Grande in 2013 for ‘Almost Is Never Enough’. Currently, Sykes is just weeks away from the big release of his debut LP, Unfinished Business, which is slated for a November 4th release. Tonight Sykes performed a number of his new records, expected for his debut. Highlights of his set included his performances of ‘Kiss Me Quick’ and ‘Over and Over Again’.

Next up, the lovely and talented Ruth B stepped on stage to greet her Chicago fans. Just 21 years old, Ruth B is new to music, but already has the qualities of a music veteran. Only a year and a half ago, Ruth B wrote her first song, ‘Lost Boy’, which soon after grew into a pop hit, and now she is touring North America in front of thousands. Ruth B alternated between her stripped down and slower songs, while also keeping energy levels high with her more upbeat tracks. Everything from her vocal skills to her stage presence is impressive, when she still has so much time to grow. With her hit record ‘Lost Boy’, the Canadian singer is 1 for 1, but you can hear more from her on her 2015 EP, The Intro.

After a brief intermission, it was time for Alessia Cara to hit the stage. Opening with her track, ‘I’m Yours’, which can be heard on both her EP, Four Pink Walls as well as her debut album, the crowd was instantly ready for a great performance. The ‘Here’ singer then followed with performances of ‘Four Pink Walls’, ‘Wild Things’ and ‘Overdose’, one of our favorite records from her debut. Highlights of Alessia’s set were her beautiful cover of Frank Ocean’s record, ‘Swim Good’, and of course her anticipated performance of ‘Here’, a record that transformed Cara into one of pop music’s most exciting artists.
