One man, one guitar, Bill Hicks' sense of humour, a Lou Reed Chord book and a cast of Slim Shadys that could have just walked off the set of Mean Streets. That's the blueprint for the incredible, raw, yet also pretty damn funny Hamell on Trial aka New York's unstoppable motormouth Ed Hamell.
Hamell On Trial tour dates
Ruth Theodore is truly unique artist and performer, creating charming and humble yet challenging and compelling pieces of original work. Her natural lyricism and deliberate turn of phrase is that of a skilled writer in command of, and having fun with, the idea of contemporary songwriting. Armed with a dazzling array of unconventional guitar tunings, a Keith Jarrett-esque ‘off the wall’ piano style, and some serious musicianship, Ruth tells stories with captivating vocal dexterity.
Ruth began her musical journey busking in doorways on detuned guitars. Remaining true to her own unique sound and signature guitar style Ruth has gone on to perform her songs and tour alongside legendary artists such as Ani Difranco, Dar Williams, Jane Siberry, Jeff Lang and Hamell On Trial, for packed out venues including The London Palladium, Bush Hall, The Union Chapel, The Borderline and Glastonbury Festival. Ruth has released four critically acclaimed albums to date, three released through homegrown label River Rat Records and the most recent, recorded in the US with producer and bassist Todd Sickafoose (Anais Mitchell/Ani Difranco) through Aveline Records.
Whether seen performing solo, on tour with iconic US punk folker Hamell On Trial, or accompanied by her band of luscious male backing singers, drums, keys, and bass, Ruth’s unique songwriting style remains the firm focus of her energetic and passionate shows as she draws you in, makes you laugh, makes you cry and keeps you thinking long after the show is over.
