Ruthie Foster makes my heart skip a beat every time she opens her mouth and perfection comes rolling out. Most people who know me well know that Blues is my ULTIMATE genre of music. When I started DJing back in 2001, I was a blues DJ. Ruthie Foster was an artist I had played often during my blues sets and was more than happy to introduce her music to as many people as I could. I hope this post spreads this Blues woman’s music to more people.
This woman can BURN UP a stage when she takes it over, much like Deborah Coleman, Bonnie Rait, and Sue Foley. Coming from a humble church beginning in Texas, Ms. Foster served in the US Navy, and has since won many well-deserved awards, including the Koko Taylor Award for Traditional Blues Female Artist of the Year 2011, 2012 and 2013.

Here are some of her videos. I hope you enjoy her as much as I do. If you enjoy what you are hearing, please consider buying some of her music. 🙂
(In my not so humble opinion, she does this better than Adele.. *Chair dances as Ruthie Sets Fire To The Stage…* :P)
