Ruthie Foster

3-Time "Best Blues Album" Grammy Nominee

Three-time "Best Blues Album" Grammy nominee Ruthie Foster of Austin, TX, has sung duets with Bonnie Raitt, performed with the Allman Brothers, and shared the stage with Susan Tedeschi. Foster is the recipient of seven Blues Music Awards, three Austin Music Awards, the Grand Prix du Disque award from the Académie Charles-Cros in France, and a Living Blues Critics’ Award for "Female Blues Artist of the Year."


The Philadelphia City Paper writes of her, "The energy she brings with just voice and guitar is stunning. Ruthie's drawn comparisons to Ella and Aretha, but musically neither is really close. What she does have in common with Fitzgerald and Franklin is the irresistible blaze — it's impossible to look away, even close the eyes, for one second."
