Blues Rock ‘n’ Roll journeyman Alastair Greene is pleased to announce he has signed a multi-record deal with celebrated blues giant Ruf Records. The legendary label will be releasing Greene’s sixth studio album (his eleventh overall) in the Spring of 2024.
“I am so excited to sign to Ruf Records.” Greene says, “Ruf is the place where Luther Allison and Walter Trout made some of the most important records of their careers. I’m thrilled to be a part of the blues rock guitar legacy that Thomas Ruf started with them.” Alastair is also elated about the opportunity to collaborate with producer JD Simo (Jack White, Phil Lesh, Luther Dickinson, War and Treaty, Chris Isaak) in his Nashville studio. “JD is an extraordinary guitar player, and also an incredibly talented artist and producer.”
Greene has previously released albums through Delta Groove Productions, Rip Cat Records, and more recently, with Tab Benoit’s Whiskey Bayou Records. “I am truly grateful for all the label opportunities I’ve had leading up to signing with Ruf,” shares Greene. “This feels like a natural, organic progression of my career and I couldn’t be happier.”
Label president Thomas Ruf raves, “Alastair Greene paid his dues with rock greats like Alan Parsons and Starship, and after years of performing his own brand of Blues Rock, it’s exciting to see him realizing his full potential. We are proud to release Alastair’s forthcoming album and have him join the 2024 Blues Caravan tour along with Eric Johanson and Katarina Pejak.”
