Blue Ringer

Blue Ringer is an original Americana band from the Pacific Northwest. Living just south of Seattle, Washington, core members are Craig Brown (guitars, vocals) and Deb Brown (bass, vocals) with other musicians joining them in the studio and live.

Best described as Americana, Blue Ringer’s music is a blend of many different genres such as folk, country, rock and blues. Creating dynamic contrasts that are lush and expansive but also dusty and sparse, Blue Ringer’s sound is sophisticated but with gritty texture and emotional edge.

Craig started Blue Ringer in the 80s while living in Port Townsend, Washington. Getting airplay on several Seattle radio stations, their first album So Many Roads garnered them a spot as a featured artist on KEZX, a prominent AAA station.

Throughout the late 80s and early 90s, the band played throughout the Northwest, Alaska and Canada on main stages at Seattle Folklife as well as dozens of regional concerts, fairs and festivals, including opening for Commander Cody at the Rock City in Seattle. Craig also joined the Commander live in the studio at rock station KXRX.

Craig reformed the band with wife Deb in 2006. In 2009 they teamed up with producer and drummer Stevie Adamek (The Allies, Big Horn) for their West Texas Sky record. Several tracks on West Texas Sky appeared on the 2010 Grammy ballot. Blue Ringer continued to play live at various venues, including the 7th Street Theatre where they opened for double-platinum artist Tracy Lawrence.

Blue Ringer is in the studio working on their 4th project. In December, 2018 the single “Dustbowl” was released. The group plans to release two more tracks in early 2019 with a full album to follow later in the year.
