“Ruth Barrett’s new recording, Parthenogenesis, sent chills up my spine. It is the most powerful and woman-affirming album I’ve heard in years! Ruth Barrett is truly the musician/priestess to lead us through the 90’s and into the next century. This is a must for anyone who believes in the political power of women’s spirituality.” ~Kay Gardner, Composer and Author

“This is Goddess music, woman-identified and full of the wild, fully alive, transformative energies of a soul breaking free of slavery. Whether a lament, ballad, or call to power, these songs brim with emotion and fierce joy. Parthenogensis demands and deserves close listening; these are not catchy tunes, but rather illuminations of poetry with expressive music.” ~Heartsong Review

” … astonishing voice and world-class dulcimer playing … the subject matter is uncompromisingly woman-identified and ‘My Sister’s Eyes’ is a gem. Ruth Barrett is an artist who can be counted on to deliver complex and beautiful music. Parthenogensis is a work of creativity and power.”  ~Gay Community News

“Emotionally subtle, yet politically powerful, Parthenogenesis radically affirms women and attains a peaceful, vibrational fullness that can be characterized as a meditational reality. It is a captivating, affirming, and delightfully expansive recording.”  ~New Directions for Women
