Barb Ryman's fifth CD, Earthbound, (2007) was co-produced with percussionist, Marc Anderson, and features 14 original and diverse songs from unique contemporary ballads to traditional, country gospel & bluegrass. In addition to Ryman’s vocals and guitar, the CD features Peter Ostroushko’s mandolin and fiddle, Adam Granger’s flat picking, Prudence Johnson’s vocal harmonies, Dirk Freymuth’s electric guitar, Enrique Toussaint’s bass and Anderson’s percussions. A lyricist of exceptional depth and perception, Ryman’s new songs traverse the Earth, the heart, mysteries of God, politics, women, love, disillusionment, joy, and the whimsical. Included on this release is the title track “Earthbound”, a lively celebration of the creative process, “90 Years 28 Moves”, the melancholic tale of an old woman who can’t settle down, “This Empire Is Falling”, a challenge to the power elite and a call for change, “Song For the Mother’s Gospel,” an archetypal questioning of the fate of God the Mother in the face of praises for God the Father, and, in keeping with her gift for topical humor, “Spam Me”, an adaptation of Roger Miller’s “Dang Me” bemoaning the woes of email spam.
