Melissa Ruth: Homegrown Folk-Sass

Since 2008, Ruth and her husband, multi-instrumentalist Johnny Leal, have toured the Western United States numerous times. They've performed in regional music festivals including the Willamette Valley Music Fest, Black Hawk's Solar Cook Off, and Eugene's Grrrlz Rock Concert Series. Melissa and Johnny dub their music "doo-wop twang," recording and gigging as an electric folk 'n blues duo. Says Ruth of their sound: "it's the electric version of homegrown folk-sass.""Melissa Ruth is a classically trained musician with back-porch sensibility. At once literary and soulful, charming and heartbreaking, Ruth and sideman Johnny Leal create music that is both down-home intimate and downtown immediate." -Both Ears Records
