Our Track of the Week ‘Good Enough’ comes from Ruth Brosnan, a singer, songwriter and musician from Cork, Ireland. Ruth writes songs of the pop/rock genre and has a unique quirky style & personality which shines through in her own songs and performances. Her influences include Kesha, Katy Perry, Gwen Stefani and Sigrid.
Ruth Says she wrote this song to help and inspire people.
‘We all go through tough times where we feel down and feel like we’re not good enough whether it be at work or at school/college or at home. We care so much about what other people think of us and as humans we crave acceptance.
I knows sometimes that can be very difficult to master but sometimes we set such high standards for ourselves and with my song I just want to help people to believe they are good enough because we all are good enough and that’s a starting point’.
A subject that is so close to the bone for Ruth, she wrote this song through her own life experiences when she sadly lost her mother when she was fourteen and several close friends to suicide.
‘Mental health and wellness are really important and I want to increase awareness. I think my song and video have a very important message and I think if younger people particularly had this song/video on their phone to listen to and to watch it might encourage them to think before they act. It could be a resource for people as sometimes we don’t talk but we look and listen’.
