Written by Admin. Posted in Member News

Dublin songwriter, RuthAnne Cunningham, is enjoying considerable success at the moment with songs featuring on recent albums by Westlife, Pixie Lott and Professor Green. Based between London and LA, the unstoppable singer/songwriter has an impressive line-up of tunes behind her created for pop-artists including Jojo's hit single with Billy Steinberg, "Too Little too late," which skyrocketed from number 66 to number 3 on the Billboard hot 100 chart in just one week in the US.

RuthAnne has written songs for chart-topping artists including Katharine McPhee, Leona Lewis, winner of Finnish pop idol Anna Abreu and winner of South African idol Jody Williams and Australian band Shakaya. In 2007, RuthAnne had songs on three platinum albums in the US and Europe, and officially became Ireland's youngest songwriter ever to achieve these honors, also winning an ASCAP Award for Best Pop Song in 2007. More stellar cuts and singles written by RuthAnne, including album title track "Turn it up", album track "My Love", and hit single “Broken Arrow”, recorded by British platinum-selling popstar Pixie Lott, followed in 2010.
Recently, she collaborated with Grammy winning producer John Shanks to co-write with Westlife for their ‘Greatest Hits’ album, released November 2011. They have three songs on the album including an upcoming single ‘Beautiful World’. RuthAnne has yet another upcoming single, ‘Love You to Death’, for Pixie Lott, penned with US hit-maker Toby Gad.
After honing her skills over the past four years writing for, and collaborating with, many of the UK’s hottest stars and producers, (Leona Lewis, Sugarbabes, Labrynth, Ben Hudson, Ed Drewett, Devlin, X-Factor winning artist Alexander Burke, Cher Lloyd, JLS, Loick Essien, Tinchy Stryder, Professor Green, Westlife, among them), and having worked extensively with many internationally renowned producers (John Shanks, Julian Bunetta, Jeff Bashker, Red One, Toby Gad, JR Rotem to name a few), RuthAnne is putting all of that experience and creativity into her own album of infectiously catchy soulful-pop, currently being recorded in Los Angeles.

Her first artist feature is with Brit rap star Professor Green, on the hook she penned for one of his upcoming singles, ‘Remedy’, to be followed by a collaboration with Glee TV star Kevin McHale". RuthAnne’s unprecedented foundations in the industry along with her songwriting pedigree and irrepressible ambition, talent and unique vision have marked her a rising star to watch – and a force to be reckoned with!
