In the past few years alone, Ruston Kelly has established himself as an essential songwriting voice, capable of transforming his unsparing and often-painful self-examination into moments of sublime catharsis. With a lyrical sensibility that constantly shifts from candid to poetic, the South Carolina-born singer/songwriter/guitarist imbues his songs with equal parts nuanced confession and punk-rock irreverence, mining inspiration from such eclectic sources as the Carter Family, transcendentalist philosopher Ralph Waldo Emerson, and seminal emo act Dashboard Confessional. His third full-length album The Weakness – his most personal and intimate collection of songs to date — was released to tremendous critical acclaim in early 2023. The New York Times hailed it as his “most assured and expansive studio album.” NPR Music noted, “Ruston Kelly’s torn it all down on his new album, The Weakness, so he could build something better,” while Rolling Stone lauded it as an “emotionally daring statement.”
