Til the End of Counting
The Carla Ryder Band has truly come into it's own. The songs, while influenced by artists from Tom Petty to Chrissy Hyndes to Keith Richards to Patty Griffin, are completely unique. This is their best creation to date. The songs are melody driven, guitar driven, lyric driven, harmony driven compositions; each telling their own story and taking the listener on it's own journey. You will not put this album down once you start listening. It is THAT good. Adam Steinberg (who has worked with the Dixie Chicks, Sheryl Crow, Laurie Sargent) produced and helped mix the album. Carla's songwriting is masterful; accessible and addictive, yet challenging, provocotive and entrancing. Her commentary on life, relationships, politics, literature, joy, outrage and self-reflection mesmerize the listener at once, inciting a multitude of interpretations. Til the End of Counting took a long time to record and finish. It is a labor of love. A work of patience, art, beauty, healing and redemption. Share in this experience and turn it up loud.
