Award-winning singer-songwriter, Barb Ryman, celebrates the release of her sixth CD, CATCH THE SUNSET, charted #15 across the nation on the Folk charts, tt's a sweet melodic ride flowing from intimate personal confessions to wise cultural commentaries to whimsical love stories and adventures of the heart. Known for her topical diversity, this collection of songs takes on such subjects as corporate greed, the joy of nature, voices from fallen soldiers, fondness for gayness, our nation’s shadow, unicorns & castles, artistic determination, and love stories in their lost, found and enduring variations. A year in the making, Ryman co-produced CATCH THE SUNSET with renowned percussionist, Marc Anderson. It also boasts some of the great players of the Midwest including Prairie Home Companion musicians Prudence Johnson on harmonies and Peter Ostroushko on mandolin and fiddle.

Lay Me Open

Barb Ryman

In cart Not available Out of stock

"Ryman took a 20-year break from songwriting and consequently didn't make her stage debut until she was 40. But in the past few years, this coffeehouse folkie has been making up for lost time. This sophomore CD is a well-crafted collection of unexpected songs about diverting topics: university and hospital bureaucracy, playing to tiny crowds and a crazy street person named Maggie. Ryman has a clear and winsome voice, a ready sense of humor, a short-story writer's flair for detail and an excellent cast of local supporting musicians." Tom Surowic Minneapolis Star Tribune "Barb Ryman's talent unfolds on 'Lay Me Open' ... you can't help being amazed at the power of her presence and the sound of her voice. You can't help but listen." Jim Walsh - St. Paul Pioneer Press

Winds of Good Fortune

Barb Ryman

In cart Not available Out of stock

Barb's first album "Barb Ryman characterizes herself as "singer songwriter, love junkie, and cultural critic." Judging by the Minneapolis resident's debut CD, Winds of Good Fortune, that description hits close to the mark. Ryman's 11 originals focus on matters of the heart, and the travails of trying to be fully present in America of the Nineties. The title song is a stirring celebration of renewed optimism that showcases Ryman's powerful, slightly twangy soprano. A trio of funny but penetrating songs, Ode to Low Self Esteem, Deep Blue, and Recovering Process Junkie take affectionate aim at the self-help industry. On Winds of Good Fortune, Barb Ryman proves herself a strong vocalist, talented composer, and an astutely irreverent student of the human condition." Dirty Linen Magazine
