Ruthie Foster - Truth

Ouch! The guitar reaches to my depths and pulls me up to move. “Truth ain’t hard to find, you know truth is hidden down inside.” Ruthie sings it, but Jesus said it (“the kingdom of god is within”). And Ruthie sings this gospel truth with a power that raises the roof and pulls the heavens down into the depths of my reality. Robben Ford’s guitar work adds spices that fill my ears with flavors meant to perfectly enhance the experience. Powerful song. This entire album is worth picking up, but I will shoutout two songs here that show off the versatility of Ruthie’s powerful vocal artistries: Love In The Middle and Joy On The Other Side.
