FeLo is a metaphor for the city: a Featured Local is someone whose work could only come from one specific place. FeLos impart a flavor of their surroundings into their art, their music, their invention, their business, and in turn, contribute some of their own flavor back to their city. FeLos love the city they’re in, and the city loves them.
Our current FeLo is Ruby Dee Philippa of Austin's own Grammy nominated band Ruby Dee and the Snakehandlers. Ruby is a foodie, musician, and a cookbook author. We talked to her about her career and life in Austin.
