Bobby Rush

Bobby Rush (born November 10, 1940) is an American blues and R&B musician, composer and singer. He was born Emmit Ellis Jr. in Homer, Louisiana. His family relocated to Chicago in 1953, where he became part of the local blues scene. In the early 1980s he moved to Jackson, Mississippi, where he recorded a series of records for the LaJam label, Malaco's Waldoxy imprint, and more recently his own Deep Rush label. He is a purveyer of the soul blues sound. He sometimes also uses elements from rap and funk. 2004's "FolkFunk" was a return to a more rootsier sound, featuring guitarist Alvin Youngblood Hart, and came out on his own Deep Rush label. He appears in the film "The Road To Memphis" which is part of the series The Blues, produced by Martin Scorsese.

Rush received recognition for his music after the release of his 22nd album "Rush" when he was awarded "Best Male Soul Blues Artist" at the Blues Music Awards. He also received “best acoustic artist” and “best acoustic album” for his album "Raw". His most recent CD 'Look At What You Gettin’ sees a return to a more modern style blues that he is closely associated with.
