Description

River of Soul on CD

Ruth McGillivray is a truly stellar vocalist and rare talent. Audiences are mesmerized by the freedom and abandon of her performance; her wit and wisdom resonates with their own experience of life. Make no mistake, this woman has soul. The courage and strength that characterizes her life is evident in the music she makes. Her collaborative work with accomplished guitarist, Sheldon Bradley, has produced an acclaimed CD and an impressive repertoire of original R&B, Blues and Gospel songs and arrangements. Daughter of a preacher and performing/recording artists, Ruth grew up singing. In the early 1990's she began fronting R&B and blues cover bands at Vancouver-area pubs, clubs, festivals and special events. Ruth and band mate, Sheldon Bradley, discovered their mutual interest in songwriting and began a collaboration that is proving to be nothing short of magical. Ruth's fans are adamant that her talent and intensity should be shared with the world. Renowned producer, Roy Salmond, heard Ruth and Sheldon's music and agreed. He produced their first CD, River of Soul, which features an all-star cast of musicians accompanying Ruth and Sheldon on 10 tracks of original blues and R&B tunes plus 2 gospel arrangements. The album was released in September 2003. River of Soul was reviewed in October 2003 by music critic Marke Andrews of The Vancouver Sun. He gave it a 4-star rating and called it 'an hour of full-bodied R&B in the spirit of early Bonnie Raitt.'
