Introducing: Ruth Flowers
Whoever said you can't keep a good woman down obviously had the foresight to know that Ruth Flowers was soon to be hot on the DJ scene. She spins at the hottest clubs in Paris, wears some of the freshest duds, and she's called "Mamy" by those closest to her. See, Ruth is 69 years old...and she literally kills on the decks.
"It's a little bit glammy...a bit over the top, perhaps. But it fits the bill, I think", the softspoken sextagenarian quips about her musical styles. Influenced by her grandson's music she heard at his birthday party at a London nightclub. "I was dumbfound…there was such an atmosphere! It was so different from the parties I used to go when I was young. There was a real osmosis between the lights and the music, it really drove and made me feel so much younger."
Since the budding DJ was on pension, she had a lot of free time. Her grandson introduced her to a French producer and they hit it off immediately. With the help of his team, she began to book local gigs and now mans the music at hot spots throughout France. Up next for Ruth? Her debut single, Mamy Rock, is scheduled for an as-yet-to-be-determined release.
