The Truth According to Ruthie Foster


THE TRUTH ACCORDING TO RUTHIE FOSTER is the follow up to THE PHENOMENAL RUTHIE FOSTER, which amassed a great deal of critical acclaim including the NY POST: Foster has a deep gritty voice with a little Janis and some Aretha that will please discerning soul and rock fans. Her cover of Lucinda Williams Fruits of My Labor tops the original. The Boston Globe agreed: Shes got a right to brag. Foster is a natural-born singer with a voice that is potent, unfussy anddeeply moving, Meanwhile, in her hometown of Austin, the Chronicle sung her praises: Fosters deeply soulful vocals dip into gospel and swing toward contemporary folk with R&B panache. When she sings a cappella, the heavens part. The album springs to life with a jaunty 70s vibe on the Ruthie-penned Stone Love. From there, Ruthie paints with all the vivid colors on her palette: Yearning desire amid a bouncy reggae beat on I Really Love You, heartbreak in the lyrics of the Patty Griffin tune When It Dont Come Easy, funky horns on another track that Ruthie wrote, Dues Paid In Full, the raw punch of Nickel and a Nail, and the deep-felt blues of Tears of Pain. Tracks: Stone Love / I Really Love You / When It Don't Come Easy / (You Keep Me) Hangin' On / Truth! / Love In The Middle / Nickel And A Nail / Dues Paid in Full / Joy On The Other Side / Tears Of Pain / Thanks For The Joy
