With three-time Grammy Nominee, Ruthie Foster, music has always been a part of Ruthie Foster’s life. The singer/songwriter from Gause, Texas comes from a family of gospel singers and by the time she was 14, she was a soloist in her hometown choir. She attended community college in Waco, Texas, studying music and audio engineering and began fronting a blues band. Foster joined the Navy and sang in the naval band; after her service, she moved to New York, where she performed at folk venues around the city. She was offered a recording deal to sing pop music, but she wanted to perform the music of her youth. Throughout her storied career, Ruthie Foster has remained true to her roots.
