I admire your artistry (and especially your versatility!) It made a refreshing change to be able to understand the lyrics of a song (without having to read them in the liner notes). I think my personal favorite is “Only Take What You Need,” but who could fail to be charmed by a song called “Let It Rot”!
—Daniel Quinn, bestselling author,Ishmael, Houston, TX

Earth Mama's artistry is an experience of Earth's wisdom and generative powers in full and vibrant song.

With a 30 year history of renewable energy use, solar, wind turbine, geo-thermal, micro-hydro, Earth Mama has been walking and singing her talk and driving her hybrid before SUSTAINABLE became a buzz word. Her history of high energy, fast paced, music performance that ignites audiences to action countering massive global climate disruption is a hit with eco-savy and not-yet-informed audiences.

Joyce Rouse (Earth Mama) grew up on a farm near Cresco, Iowa giving her a strong background for supporting the local foods and local economy movement. Entertaining with her voice and piano from a very early age, she began writing songs while still in elementary school. With a Masters of Arts in Earth Literacy and extensive music and theatrical training, she performs throughout North America. Her unique interaction with audiences highlights our interdependence with all living systems on Earth. Earth Mama's mission is Helping Heal the Planet One Song At A Time.

Earth Mama music is enjoyed on six continents, and heard on internet and syndicated public radio programs worldwide,.

With over 100 writer credits on recordings to her name, Joyce's songs have been recorded by pop and country music artists, featured in movies and ads, and used as theme songs for a number of events including national celebrations. Joyce's original music for peace, justice and eco-justice has been used extensively by educators and by international and environmental and peace organizations.
For the 75th Anniversary of American Women's Suffrage in 1995, Joyce wrote and performed the theme song, "Standing On The Shoulders", which premiered at official events in Washington, D.C. Her song WE ARE ONE is featured in the United Nations New Songs for Peace project.

Earth Mama live performances are know as great music with a message for sustainability. Her satisfied clients have included major universities, U.S. Fish and Wildlife, Department of the Interior, U.S. Army, colleges, churches, festivals, corporations and associations.
