Ruth Dolores Weiss

Ruth Dolores Weiss (Hebrew: רות דולורס וייס; born February 23, 1978 in Ashkelon, Israel) is an Israeli musician. She released her second studio album, Be'Ivrit (literally, "In Hebrew"), to critical acclaim in Israel in August 2008. Ben Shalev, Israel's top music critic, writing about the album in Haaretz, said, "Amazing. There is no other word to describe the encounter with the voice, talent, sensitivity, emotion and spirit of Ruth Dolores Weiss." Another Israeli music critic, David Peretz, one of the first to hear Weiss' songs, said it was like discovering Billie Holiday or Björk in Ashkelon, her hometown.[1] Weiss' previous album, Come See (Raw Versions), was released in 2004.
