| As a guy with a guitar it's easy these days to get trapped in the insipid singer songwriter fold. It doesn't make it easier if you've been tube fed with songs by the giants in this genre during|
| your upbringing. In the Ryman home Dylan's Blonde on Blonde, Beatles White Album and Rolling Stones Let it Bleed constantly spun on the familys record player. That will naturally leave a trace. If you in addition to that have grown up with a music making big brother, who rarely opens his mouth without mentioning Lou Reed, The Band or Al Green, it's not easy to create your own musical sphere. But despite that, Simon|
| Ryman is one of few artists today who has been able to manage the feat of using the classical song writing tradition, and recast his songs into a new and interesting form for this century.
