OFFICIAL RELTONE RECORDS BIOGRAPHY
Reltone Records Recording artist, Brownbird Rudy Relic is the embodiment of the ‘modern-day’ blues music troubadour. Having started his career street busking throughout the United States, he eventually settled in New York City where he began to hone his unique musical style; acoustic holler blues. Just as much as turn of the century blues music was an amalgam of the influences of the day, Acoustic Holler Blues lays parallel to a similar synthesis; fusing early pre-war country blues styles with a multitude of other relevant (rhythm &) blues influences such as Hokum, Ragtime, Doo wop and Boogie-Woogie.
In true troubadour fashion; he has taken his music all over the world; a man, his guitar and a mission to purvey traditional blues music in a relevant contemporary light – moving the music forward rather than presenting it as ‘retro’ or as ‘revivalism”
He has played shows all throughout North and South America, Canada and Mexico as well as all over Europe, Australia and the Middle East.
His first album on , “” has sold in excess of 6000 copies; an impressive feat in today’s independent blues scene. His sophomore release “” was released in 2011. A new album entitled "Chicano Dynamite" was released in October of 2012.
