Ruthie Foster

Score: 0

Ruthie Foster has been nominated for a Best Blues Album Grammy Award—three times in a row. And with the release of her latest album, Joy Comes Back, the Recording Academy might want to put its engraver on notice. The small rural town of Gause, Texas, had no chance of keeping the vocal powerhouse known as Ruthie Foster to itself. Described by Rolling Stone as “pure magic to watch and hear,” Foster possessed such outstanding vocal talent early on that her community church elevated her in worship services. Drawing influence from legendary acts such as Mavis Staples and Aretha Franklin, Foster developed a unique sound unable to be contained within a single genre. That uniqueness echoes a common theme in her life and career: marching to the beat of her own drum.
