This past Friday we had the honor joining an all-star cast at Levon Helm Studios "home of the midnight ramble" for a beauiful and scortching tribute to Levon in honor of what would have been his 75th birthday. What a crew!
The Mike + Ruthy Band is tied for third with Rhett Miller with Black Prairie with 12 adds at AAA radio in our first week. Stoked.
This morning Folk Alley premiered "Rock On Little Jane," calling it "A fist-raising, you can do it, don't ever stop trying anthem, one that inspires all kids, no matter how old we are, to sing along."
We are so grateful for all the great early reviews that have been rolling in in advance of our 6/2 release date! Read the whole review and stream the premiere here.
Pre-order "Bright As You Can" on iTunes today!
We are big fans of "roots music authority" No Depression. Turns out we have some fans over there as well! Check out the premiere of our second single "What Are We Waiting For" and a GREAT album review by Kim Ruehl.
"This is a record about what it is to be human. It's a record about what it is to have an inextricable allegiance to tradition, while feeling compelled to speak for oneself. It's a record that will grab you, that won't let you go"
The Mike + Ruthy Band is thrilled to announce that we'll be opening for and backing up the one and only Kate Pierson (of the B-52's) for a run of shows this July that will take us to Atlanta, Athens, Nashville and Chicago! Roam if you want to, Roam around the world!
