Ruthie And The Wranglers
Azalea City Recordings’ Artists, Ruthie and the Wranglers, play rockin' American Roots music (also known as FUN!) After more than 25 Years of Wrangler twang, including touring, radio airplay, and releasing seven albums, the band remains a cornerstone of the DC roots music scene. From original Americana Country to rousing Surf instrumentals, their clever lyrics, high energy and spritely hillbilly harmonies set them apart from the rest. Their 5-piece includes guitars, piano, bass and drums, and sometimes steel and mandolin—showcasing their dynamic three part harmonies and original songs.
Ruthie and The Wranglers’ albums have ranked high on Americana, Folk and Roots music radio charts around the world. Their clever songwriting skills were penned by Billboard as “...nothing short of brilliant.” Dirty Linen, No Depression, The Washington Post and Country Music People raved about their recordings”
Their most recent release, All Wrangled Up is a compilation CD of previously hard to find or most requested songs and is fantastic one-stop shopping for Wrangler tunes. "Surftilicus" shows off guitarist Andy Rutherford and the tune is standout at live shows. Ruthie’s “If A Heart Breaks” was dubbed “classic Country gold.” by Chris Smith at Country Music People Magazine/UK.
Experience the raw energy and excitement that only a live show can foster. A well-balanced variety of originals and a few covers featuring all 3 songwriters and vocalists make for a fantastic night of memorable fun. Front woman Ruthie Logsdon brightens up the room with her clever songs, strong vocals and effervescent charm. Roots Rocker Andy Rutherford on lead and steel guitar, Bill Starks on piano an organ, (Bill's lonesome love song “300 Miles to Memphis” garnered a WAMMIE for Song of the Year and is a show stopper) Jim Robeson on bass, and Tom Fridrich on percussion all make this band a super high- test combo.
Ruthie and the Wranglers have been awarded more than 30 Washington Area Music Awards including Artist of the Year, Album of the Year and Song of the Year and has reached emeritus status.

The TrueHearts are a Nashville based Americana/Rock duo comprised of singer/songwriters Debra Buonaccorsi & Steve McWilliams. Their music is characterized by close harmonies and close ties to the roots of American music, full of harmonies and hooks to raise a smile, and lyrics that range from love and yearning to dreams and cautionary tales. Originally from the Washington DC area, The Truehearts tour throughout the US and have become a fixture in the East Nashville Americana scene. This summer, they’ll be touring in support of their latest release “Songs for Spike”.
About The TrueHearts “Songs for Spike”
“This is a rocking damn gorgeous eclectic but unified set of songs, about the never-ending fight to come out on top in life.”
-Tommy Womack (singer-songwriter, music journalist, East Nashvillian)
“Americana that blows open the ears and doors so firmly you really won't know what to do with it.”
-Chris Spector, Midwest Record
“With a knack for melody and sharp storytelling, The Truehearts have made a terrific album of modern Americana. Steve and Debra blend everything from '30s string bands, '50s rock'n'roll, '70s Petty, '80s Ramones, and 21st century folk into a warm-yet-sharp blend of well-observed tunes, full of layered harmonies and apt arrangements. Keep your ears open for The Truehearts.”
- Eric Brace (Red Beet Records / Last Train Home / Brace-Cooper-Jutz)
