program booklet

Those who have followed Ruthie Foster’s eclectic musical history know that she can burn down any stage with her combustible blend of soul, blues, rock, folk and gospel. Ruthie’s astonishing voice has taken her on an amazing ride. She came from humble church choir beginnings in rural Texas, followed by a tour of duty with the U.S. Navy Band, and ended up in Austin, Texas.

Ruthie’s list of achievements include 2009 and 2012 Grammy nominations for Best Contemporary Blues Album, Best Female Vocalist in 2007, 2008 and 2013 from the Austin Music Awards, the 2010 and 2013 Living Blues Critic’s Poll Winner for Female Blues Artist of the Year, and recent Blues Music Award wins for Best Contemporary AND Best Traditional Blues Female Artist of the Year.

Ruthie’s latest CD, Promise Of A Brand New Day, Grammy®-Nominated 2015 for Blues Album of the Year, was produced by Meshell Ndegeocello. “Ruthie’s voice is such a singular, powerful instrument, and she has such mastery of it,” Ndegeocello says. “She can turn it on, belt it out and bring you to your knees, all in an instant.”
