Ruth-Ann Boyle (born 26 April 1970, Sunderland) is an English pop music singer who became famous during the 1990s. Together with producers Tim Kellett and Robin Taylor-Firth, she formed the British band Olive. The band became world famous with “You’re Not Alone” single in 1997.
During the production of Olive’s second album under Madonna’s label Maverick and titled as “Trickle”, Boyle met Michael Cretu, who had heard one of her songs (“Miracle”) in Ibiza and he invited her to participate on Enigma’s fourth concept album “The Screen Behind the Mirror” (1999/2000). Boyle sang the lead vocals on two tracks on the album, one of them was released as the lead single titled “Gravity of Love” and afterward Boyle also performed as a female voice for the more commercial pop oriented Voyageur album on tracks “Boum-Boum” and “Following the Sun” in late 2003. Her voice could be heard again on seventh Enigma album on tracks “Touchness” and (available on limited edition of the album) “We Are Nature”.
Because of their successful collaboration, they produced a solo debut album, which was produced in A.R.T. Studios in Ibiza, late 2004. The album was named “What about Us?”. After numerous delays, the album was digitally released via iTunes in June 2007.
