The Gulf Coast’s most coveted listening room will feature two young and promising singer-songwriters for an evening of Southern music. Ruby the RabbitFoot will open the show. Hailing from Athens, Georgia, Ruby takes her name from the “taxidermied appendage of some poor carrot-hunter dyed an ungodly shade of pink and attached to a faux gold keychain so young kids in despair can have something to wish upon.”
This beautiful songstress honed her musical talent growing up in a family of musical “hippies.” Ruby will be entertaining the OGD crowd with cuts from her album “New As Dew.” Her sound mingles equal portions of alt. country and alt. rock laced with sugary vocals.
Dylan LeBlanc will be evening’s headliner. Raised in a world of music, as a child, his father moved him from Shreveport to Muscle Shoals. While there, he learned both the power of music and the power of showmanship from watching his father perform in the various venues of northern Alabama.
After stints with bands such as Abraham and Sons of Roswell, LeBlanc embarked on a solo career that started with his album “Pauper’s Field.” Currently, LeBlanc is performing in support of his latest album “Cast the Same Old Shadow.” The album’s initial single “Part One: The End,” presents an artist that has conjured ethereal vibes and translated them into unique organic sounds. These two artists should be well-matched and well-received at Callaghan’s.
