Ruth Theodore has just signed an exciting record deal with Ani Difranco’s Righteous Babe Records in the USA and is off on tour there for the foreseeable, but before she goes, to celebrate the release of her highly anticipated 5th studio record Ruth and her knock out band are back on the road in the UK in April-May.

Theodore has assembled another exciting line-up of talented musicians for this launch tour. Notably amongst them is award winning zimbabwean bassist Edith
Weutonga. This time they perform the new album which is the fruits of her further collaborations with Grammy and Tony award winning bassist/producer Todd Sickafoose and Swiss
American percussion virtuoso Mathias Kunzli, recorded in upstate New York by Eli Crews (Tune Yards).

“The last time I played the London Palladium Ruth Theodore was on the bill with me. I watched from the wings inspired by her authenticity, her connection with my audience, and her free artistic spirit. That night I saw her as a true Righteous Babe. Last fall, when she reached out with her new album, it seemed the perfect time to reunite and help introduce her to North America.” – Ani Difranco

Heralded in the music press as “one of the most innovative, original, exciting – and underrated – artists in the UK” – Ruth creates and performs with a unique and instantly recognizable style that effortlessly pushes the boundaries of gender and genre, and defies the confines of the conventional ‘singer-songwriter’ archetype. This stage show is geared around bringing more of Ruth’s incredible new music into the limelight and together with gripping stories from her life, she and her percussive line-up of drums, bass, keys, and backing vocals, will take you on an emotional, often political and very playful journey.

The live show will include performances of the new singles HOLD ON ME, FULL METAL JACKET as well as top tracks PEOPLE PEOPLE,THOMPSON, and KISSING IN TRAFFIC plus many more.
