Who Is Ruthie Foster

Our Capitol city is home to many musicians from all types of genres. We are so fortunate to be so close to Austin, Texas and benefit from all this talent being nearby.

Ruthie's latest album, Joy Comes Back, described as “some folk, some blues, some soul, some rock, some gospel,” illustrates a genre-spanning talent.

Ruthie Foster shared the stage with many great performers, such as dueting with Bonnie Raitt, further on standing on the same stage with the Allman Brothers at the New York Beacon Theater, while trading verses with Susan Tedeschi.

Early Life

Growing up in a small central Texas town Ruthie started, as many of us did here in East Texas, singing in church. That's what it's like to come from a gospel family.

Ruthie's dad started her down the road to the blues. Rummaging through old tapes of blues greats started this current path in music.
