Ruthie Foster


Those that have followed Ruthie Foster's eclectic career know she can burn down any house with her combustible blend of blues, folk, gospel revival, and soul!  Ruthie's lyrics bleed and her songs ring with joy! Her huge, astonishing voice has been compared to Bonnie Raitt and Aretha Franklin.

The ascending folk blues star 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 Best Female Vocalist in 2007, 2008 and 2013 from the Austin Music Awards, a 2012 and 2009 Grammy nomination for Best Contemporary Blues Album, the 2010 Living Blues Music Award Critic’s Poll for Female Blues Artist of the Year, the 2013 Living Blues Music Award Critic’s Poll for Blues Artist of the Year (female) and recent Blues Music Award wins for Best Contemporary and Best Traditional Blues Female Artist of the Year.

Her debut CD, “Full Circle,” was released in 1997 and was followed by “Crossover” in 1999. The two albums secured Ruthie as an up-and-coming singer/songwriter in the Austin scene and caught the attention of Texas independent label Blue Corn Music. Since then, Foster has released seven albums on that label; her studio album releases include “Runaway Soul” in 2002, “The Phenomenal Ruthie Foster” in 2007, “The Truth According to Ruthie Foster” in 2009, “Let It Burn” in 2012 and “Promise of a Brand New Day” in 2014. The latter three were all nominated for Grammy Awards in the category of Best Blues Album. She has also released two live albums, “Stages” in 2004 and “Live At Antone’s,” a CD and DVD release, in 2011.

Ruthie has collaborated on stage with artists ranging from Bonnie Raitt to The Allman Brothers to Susan Tedeschi, and has recorded tracks with Warren Haynes, Big Head Todd, and The Blind Boys of Alabama, among others.
