The Galaxie Agency Welcomes "Hurricane" Ruth LaMaster!!

Nashville, TN -- The Galaxie Agency, a full-service artist management shop specializing in blues and roots artists, has signed "Hurricane"Ruth LaMaster to its roster. “We are incredibly excited to have Ruth join our group of artists. She is a powerhouse of soul who gives everything she has when performing or recording." ..... Gina Hughes The Back Story......... Ruth and I met a few years ago, in Memphis, TN, during International Blues Challenge. I heard her singing at the Blind Raccoon Showcase. I was drawn in by her powerful voice and her ability to interact with her audience from the stage. (I have always been a fan of some rockin' Blues.). She always attended The Galaxie Agency Showcase. Her infectious smile and her comradery with the crowd always caught my attention. Fast Forward 2016 ........ Again in Memphis, TN during the International Blues Challenge, I was sitting in Rum Boogie Cafe for the late night jam. Ruth sat down beside me and asked if she could give me her new EP. As we were discussing the EP, Ruth mentioned what her dream record would be. I said, "If you will come to Nashville, I will help you do that record." Ruth came to Nashville.....not once but several times. We had a heck of a good time and we definitely made a record. Put it on your calendar - March 10, 2017......it's coming. And in the meantime click the link below for a taste of "Hurricane" Ruth's new record, "Ain't Ready For The Grave", produced by Tom Hambridge. "Ruth is the real deal,” Hambridge said. “She really brought the goods to the studio. We started with great songs, and have some of the best players around performing with her on her album. I had a blast producing this record, and we are expecting great things from it.” Along with Hambridge on drums, "Ain’t Ready for the Grave", features Michael Rhodes on bass, Reese Wynans on keys, Pat Buchanan and Rob McNelley on guitar.
