Ruby Lovett is pure country. She is heir to a tradition of women with drawls and spunk, women who,
truth be told, built and nurtured country music from its beginnings through early Reba. She is funny, unaffected, and unabashedly traditional in her outlook. Her music is as authentic as she is, full of honest emotion and real-life situations/ sung with unaffected grace and power.
While working on an album for Curb Records with producer Allen Reynolds, she became friends with Garth Brooks who says of Ruby, “For the people that say ‘country’ is what’s missing from today’s country music, find Ruby Lovett.” Great advice!
Taylor Pie is a veteran musician and singer of almost 60 years! She learned to play and sing songs off the radio before radio had categories like folk, country, jazz or rock. All that mixing and mingling of styles shaped her into an eclectic root based poet minstrel who can deliver a song with such a motherlode of honesty that you may be brought to tears or suddenly find yourself singing loudly, whether you can carry a tune or not! Her voice is visceral… as if it’s rising from the marrow of her soul.
Pie’s songs are instinctive, elemental emotional journeys into the heart of being human. “Listening to her music is like putting on your favorite pair of blue jeans, so comfortable and the fit is perfect, voice, words and music matched with real experience, character, grace, and charm…”
