Blues Without Borders Artist Evelyn Rubio Gains Phenomenal Radio Momentum

Multi-talented singer, musician Evelyn Rubio's dual language release "Hombres" blows the charts away. Coming in at number one Latin Pop Album, number three Top Latin Album, and number six Blues Album, Evelyn Rubio is well on her way. Grammy member Evelyn Rubio had this to say, "We are so excited! Our greatest hope was that our efforts toward delivering a quality piece of work in both Spanish and English would gain worldwide attention and now we are seeing through the many plays by radio stations worldwide that we are witnessing our hope. We couldn't be more happier, this is very exciting."

Currently Evelyn Rubio is gracing the cover of Mississippi Blues Club as their Featured Artist of 2015. Publisher/Editor Dew Wiuff shared this remark, "Mixing a sizzling fusion of jazz with pop, rock and blues ingredients is not the forte of many artists that create their own style of music, but occasionally an artist comes along that mixes up their music and appeals to a wide range of listeners. Evelyn Rubio is naturally one of these artists that cross the boundaries."

Australian radio show host (Blues on the Hill Radio Show) Barry Maxwell shares this, "Old school Big Band Blues does not come any better than the latest release from Evelyn Rubio. Led by the fabulous Calvin Owens, his Blues Orchestra swings its way through 11 wonderful tracks, with the stunning voice of Evelyn Rubio this release is a must have for your blues collection."

Radio X Belgium, Paul Heath CEO, comments, "After receiving Evelyn Rubio's CD, that reached us here in Europe just a few months back, it was clear from taking the briefest of listens that she was going to have to be featured in one of our specialist music hour segments."

From Sicily, Radio Show Host Nicola Conforti, "Latin or English version? It is difficult to know which album is better! In Italy the Latin language is much easier to understand, as well as the English language is very much blues. Evelyn Rubio with her two albums "HOMBRES" has Latinized the Blues, and simultaneously has Americanized the Hispanic musicality. Hearing this sound and the fresh voice of a complete artist as Evelyn, it is a very nice experience. Very refined saxophone solos, full and round on all the arrangements, both cheerful and sentimental songs accompanied by a great orchestra. And so, as we say in Italy, HOMBRES is an album "PERFETTO", or rather two!"

Blues Foundation Board Member John W. Deck Jr, "I have had the privilege of hearing Evelyn Rubio several times in and around the Houston area. What a great talent! She will continue to make waves within the blues genre."
