Ruth Theodore

Ruth Theodore’s songs fascinate audiences with their distinctive lyricism while her upbeat performances exude a contagious sense of fun. Performing with her multi-talented, barber-shop-blues trio (Elliot Jett, Jigh Ejakpovi and Wayne Thompson) Ruth's skills as a producer really shine. These original, delta blues influenced songs, are raw and energetic but lyrically, she remains as insightful as ever, tearing around her six string with a brass slide and true conviction. 
Ruth released her debut ‘Worm Food’ in 2007 followed by ‘White Holes Of Mole Hills’ in 2010 which was praised in The Guardian, and on BBC Radio3 and BBC 6music. In 2012 Ruth opened for grammy award winning Ani DiFranco at London's Union Chapel and in 2013 released the much anticipated ‘Dear Lamp Love Moth’ receiving further praise from national press and radio. Late 2013 Ruth established the barber-shop-blues trio she is currently touring and recording her new blues influenced material with. They have just completed a live record, recorded on a river boat. This record is rumoured for a 2014 release.
"Songs so quirky and unexpected that it's impossible to imagine anyone
else performing them, following none of the more conventional styles
of song-writing. And it actually works." - The Guardian ★★★★
