If there’s ever an example of a viral superstar, Ruth B is it. The Canadian singer-songwriter who turned 21 years old today – HAPPY BIRTHDAY RUTH! – was a burgeouning Vine star among the masses when her original song ‘Lost Boy’ took the Internet by storm.
After getting inspiration from watching an episode of Once Upon A Time, ‘Lost Boy’ was born. “When I posted the Vine it was more about Peter Pan and fairies,” she told us in our exclusive video interview, “but when I sat down to write the song I really wanted to make it more than that and give it meaning so I related it to real life and just how everyone’s been lonely at some point and in need of a friend.
“I definitely have been there so it was really easy to write it actually and it came from a really pure place.”
