“You’re the only hurricane I can appreciate.”
— Willie Dixon
LaMaster has performed with John Lee Hooker, B.B. King, Willie Dixon, Taj Mahal, the Ramsey Lewis Trio, Sam & Dave, Fenton Robinson, Maynard Ferguson, Kenny Wayne Shepherd, Royal Southern Brotherhood, and Ronnie Baker Brooks. Her vocals are deeply rooted in traditional blues, but she can also rock the house. LaMaster has opened for Heart, Judas Priest, Joan Jett and The Blackhearts, and Steppenwolf, to name a few.
Blues great, Willie Dixon, once called her “the only hurricane I can appreciate.” She’s got the power of Big Mama Thornton, the fire of Janis Joplin, the boundless stage energy of Tina Turner, and soulfulness of Aretha Franklin all rolled into a petite package.
- "She emotes in a way that allows her searing, soulful tones to reflect a deeply rooted signature style. Indeed, as her name suggests, she's a force of nature, and like a storm that's barreling forward, the power she possesses is worthy of respect." - Lee Zimmerman, Living Blues Magazine
- "The diminutive, 5-foot tall Ruth LaMaster‘s moniker “Hurricane Ruth” is not the least bit understated. She can wail like the force of nature the term connotes. Although 'Good Life' is Hurricane Ruth’s fifth album, this is the one that will likely take her career up a few notches...it's her time now." - Jim Hynes, Glide Magazine
