  Bright As You Can, the rocking new album from The Mike + Ruthy Band, celebrates the grit and glory of kinship with 14 road-tested tunes of radio-ready acoustic pop, broody rock, country soul, and boot-stomping porch folk. As with previous Mike + Ruthy endeavors, the rootsy material covers much ground, but the through-line remains family.

In May, 2014, Mike + Ruthy decided to make a high octane record, comprised of songs they could tour with a band. Guests on the record include Ruthy’s father, Jay Ungar, Amy Helm (Levon Helm’s daughter), and ace keyboardist Marco Benevento, all adding texture, intensity, and family love.

This Saturday, The Mike + Ruthy Band will play an album release party at The Bearsville Theatre in Woodstock, NY.
