You can describe the music of BlackRue as American Rock Alt Country with a twinge of Punk attitude. Drums, Bass, Les Pauls, The occasional fiddle, add beer and you've got a high energy show!
The vocal harmonies and catchy songs have had some compare their sound to Bon Jovi and David Bowie but hey, if you hear them throw "You Are My Sunshine" into the mix, you can draw your own conclusion.
Since 2010, Non stop performing and a relentless work ethic, the band has found itself as direct support for Bret Michaels & Days of the New as well as performing for The Philadelphia Folk song Society and music festivals like HollyStock and The Liberty Music Festival in Philadelphia. Securing the nomination for song & Ep of the year at the 93.7 WSTW Hometown Heroes Homey awards and an acoustic performance at the awards ceremony has fueled the band to work even harder.
Their debut EP "The Likelihood of Confusion" was released November 2013 to a great deal of success which led to airplay on 95.1 WZZO Allentown, PA, 102.5 WRFY Reading PA, 104.9 WRKY Altoona, PA and 93.7 WSTW Wilmington, DE. All of the songs on the Ep are in heavy rotation on Pandora and internet radio all across the US.
