The Litt Family is Robbie Litt & Ruthanne Litt
Robbie began his music career in Canada at the age of 12 as a bass player for local bands in northern Ontario. At 18, Robbie formed Brothers The Band with his two brothers where he played guitar and sang lead vocals. Robbie developed his performance and song writing skills as Brothers The Band toured Ontario for 13 years.
After Brothers The Band, Robbie became a soloist and played guitar and harmonica for Canadian country music singer and songwriter, Beverly Mahood. In 2013, Robbie decided to take the opportunity to gain an American fan base by joining Carnival Cruise lines with ports in Jacksonville, Florida and Galveston, Texas. With Carnival, he was able to travel and perform in countries like Spain, Bahamas, Turkey, and Italy.
Robbie’s music is inspired by classic rock and country artists such as Lynrd Sknyrd, Kris Kristofferson, Pink Floyd, and Johnny Cash. His life experiences and personal trials have helped him to create moving songs like Play it Soft, Brother, and Take Me for a Ride which are favorites among his fans.
Ruth has been a police officer in Northeast Florida for the past 19 years. During those years, she’s also been a musician performing taps on the trumpet for various police funerals and memorial events. Ruth currently plays bass for the Litt Family Band and is looking forward to retirement from police work in the near future and performing full time with the band.
