Ruth Picker reinvents music business model with The Song Tailors

Melbourne based Ruth Picker has a dual life. By day she is a mild-mannered auditor for a great metropolitan accounting firm, by night songwriter for her labour of love The Song Tailors.

With the music industry business model in a state of constant change, Ruth has detoured down a different path to get her songs to the public. Ruth had been writing songs as a 10-year old but in the words of John Lennon “life is what happens while you’re busy making other plans”.

Three decades passed when a series of family tragedies reignited her passion as a songwriter. After connecting with Melbourne producer James Kempster, Ruth resurrected her songwriting and The Song Tailors was born.

Now armed with decades of corporate experience and The Song Tailors as a vehicle, Ruth had the platform to release her new music. She then took it one step further. The Song Tailors also became an opening for new artists and musicians to participate and be heard.

Kempster’s Rockcandy Productions became the incubator for The Song Tailors. As one of Australia’s leading experts in artist development, management, songwriting and production James began building the assets required to take The Song Tailors from concept to launch.

The Song Tailors KintsugiIn the lead-up to the debut album Ruth and James have released ‘The First Five’ and ‘Unplugged’ EPs. Now the debut album ‘Kintsugi’ is available. The title Kintsugi is relevant to Ruth as a person. It is the Japanese word for the art of repairing broken pottery, an analogy she makes with her own life and her break from songwriting for 30 years.

‘Kintsugi’ the album is rich in diversity. To complete the diversity a variety of singers were brought in including a remarkable discovery with 12-year old Orange County, California singer Milla de Villers through to The Ten Tenors baritone Nathan Lay.
