A 2020 graduate from Berklee College Of Music, Boston-based singer-songwriter Hannah Rutti has been praised for breakout hits like “Right This Time” and “lazyboy.”
The Music Bugle had the chance to talk with Rutti about which artists she currently listens to, day-to-day challenges and more, which you can check out below.
Music Bugle – What has been your hardest challenge lately?
Hannah Rutti – My hardest challenge has definitely been trying to juggle my day job with my music. I try to carve out specific time to work on music and get my to-do lists done daily.
Music Bugle – What’s the best piece of advice you’ve ever been given?
Hannah Rutti – Don’t rush. Everything comes at a different time for everyone. You don’t need to rush to catch up to someone else because we all go at our own pace.
Music Bugle – Where do you go when you need a break?
Hannah Rutti – Outside. I grew up on a farm, so I am very much at home just going on a walk or being at the countryside.
Music Bugle – Who are you listening to right now, music-wise?
Hannah Rutti – I am listening to a lot of FLETCHER, as well as Lennon Stella, Sasha Sloan, Elley Duhé and artists like them.
Music Bugle – To you, what has been your proudest accomplishment?
Hannah Rutti – I am most proud about completing my degree in music from Berklee College of Music. I believe graduating started my journey and I am so thrilled about exploring where I go from here.
Music Bugle – What makes you the proudest about where you come from?
Hannah Rutti – I am so proud to be from a family that gives everything for those they love. I would not be the empathetic individual I am now if I did not have parents and a family who would do anything they needed to ensure their happiness. Hard work and love has made me who I am today.
Music Bugle – What do you wish happened more in today’s music industry?
Hannah Rutti – I wish songwriters were given more credit. They are so easily overlooked and they are the foundation of popular music because without them, there would be no songs! Songwriters deserve to have a higher pay per stream and deserve that name recognition, the same as artists get.
