(2015/Hot Toddy) 14 tracks. Gaye Adegbalola & The Wild Rutz (pronounced ROOTS) is an a cappella blues quartet complemented by percussion and occasional guitar. Gaye's songs, as always, reflect her left-of-center sense of humor, her love of life and deep commitment to social activism including feminism, gay rights, and personal liberation. Though they often draw comparisons to Sweet Honey in the Rock, their repertoire is decidedly different. In this world of screaming electrified instrumental acrobatics and digital perfectionism, this group of seasoned activist musicians delights in returning to their 'Rutz'! Four unique voices combine with percussion and occasional guitar to add a previously unrecorded dimension to the blues.
