Guest Occupation: Author
Guest Biography:

The early 20th century was unforgiving on many women. Writer Celia Ryker’s grandmother was one such woman who had more than her fair share of a hard life. Ryker has written a powerful, insightful novel (Augusta) based on the exploits and overwhelming challenges her grandmother faced during the Depression.

Raised on a hard-knock farm in Arkansas and married off to the father of one of her classmates at the age of 13, lead-character Augusta was not set up for a life of bliss. Then, abandoned by her second husband in 1920s Detroit, with four children to provide for and only an eighth-grade education, she is forced into a decision that will haunt her forever.

From the author of Walking Home: Trail Stories, Ryker's Augusta is gripping historical fiction based on the true, against-the-odds story of her grandmother, a woman who fled the hardships of the Ozarks at the turn of the 20th century for a new city, and a chance at a better life. She had to confront the kind of poverty that you can almost smell, the kind that is in the background of the Neapolitan novels by Elena Ferrante and The Grapes of Wrath. All three novels tell us that poverty has to do with a lot more than money. Self-worth is measured differently by the poor, so are luxury, duty, comfort, and success. The poor are snared by forces outside their control.

Some readers might find this a heroic story, but there were millions of farm folk like Augusta at the beginning of the 20th century. They did what they needed to do to survive. Men were sheared of their dignity when they lost the farm or lost a job, and couldn’t support their families. Like Augusta’s two husbands, they often turned to alcohol in their shame. The women made do, taking responsibility for the children.

Her particular struggle was common in the early 1900s: Marriage at 13, children born as they came, a move from the farm to the grinding, dirty, dangerous city, and meeting new immigrants who had fled similar hardships.

Details carry the story and are constantly surprising. The reader learns how the first washing machines worked, how unwelcome a hospital birth was after knowing the intimacy and convenience of having your baby at home, and what tenements were like.

Historical novels require strong characters with heart -- and Augusta’s heart shines through a life filled with adversity. Augusta puts her head down and does what must be done to provide for her children. Her unshrinking strength is an inspiration.

Ryker's previous book, Walking Home: Trail Stories, is about more than mud, sweat, and blisters while distance hiking the Long Trail. Reminiscent of Cheryl Strayed's Wild, Ryker's mind wanders as her legs carry her forward, beyond a woodland path, to places and people she thought she had forgotten. Her grandmother's spirit appears on Mount Baker. A lost cousin waits for her at the bottom of every ladder. Her late father's words reverberate among the calls of barred owls. There were days when she didn't see another hiker, but she was never alone. Ryker began writing about a difficult hike and ended up writing about the people who inspired her throughout her life. These are her "trail stories."

“Augusta shows women everywhere that no matter how hard one’s journey is, the key is to keep moving, and to not let one’s past or rough start dictate their life’s outcome,” concludes Ryker.

Guest Occupation: Musical band
Guest Biography:

Band Members:

Sherry Rayn Barnett – Founder of the Band / Electric Guitar Player / Vocals

Suzanna Spring – Main Lead Singer / Songwriter / Acoustic Guitar

Holly Montgomery – Bass Player / Vocals

Aubrey Richmond – Fiddle Player / Vocals

Suzanne Morissette Cruz – Drummers / Vocals

Back when the Palomino was ground zero for the post-cowpunk California country scene, the Mustangs were a young, all-girl band who were long on chops and strong on harmonies. In a world where Jim Lauderdale and Buddy Miller shared a band, Lucinda Williams, Rosie Flores and the late Candye Kane had a roots, rockabilly and blues take on country and you never knew if Dave Alvin or Dwight Yoakam might show up at Ronnie Mack’s Barn Dance, The Mustangs made their debut at The Pal. They had a beautiful sound, making original music that was equal parts Emmylou Harris and Stevie Nicks, mixed with the three- and four-part harmonies reminiscent of The Eagles.

Following their debut at The Palomino, The Mustangs were named the Southern California Country Music Vocal Group of the Year. Headlining around L.A., the band was discovered and invited to play in Europe and Scandinavia, touring the US and Europe three times. The Mustangs played clubs and festivals, including SXSW and the renowned Roskilde Festival in Denmark.  

Members of the group parted ways in the mid-90s to pursue other musical interests, following their hearts to different parts of the country. Lead vocalist/songwriter and acoustic guitarist Suzanna Spring relocated to Nashville, where she worked as a staff songwriter for EMI Music and Bluewater Music, and wrote the radio single, “Time,” for country recording artist Doug Stone. Spring later released a solo album, winning Music Row Magazine’s Discovery Award. She has performed at The Bluebird Cafe, Tin Pan South, as a featured artist on WPLN’S “Songwriter Sessions’, and as a representative of NSAI (Nashville Songwriters Association International), she performed for members of Congress in Washington, DC. Lead guitarist Sherry Rayn Barnett, a concert photographer since her teenage years in NYC, saw her work featured in Rolling Stone and The New York Times. Her first book of concert photography, the widely-praised “Eye of the Music,” was published in 2020. Bassist/vocalist Holly Montgomery headed to the east coast and successfully pursued a career as a solo artist and studio musician, releasing two acclaimed solo CDs. Her latest album, SORRY FOR NOTHING, was released on Los Angeles-based label KZZ Music in 2022.  

The Mustangs began their renewal in 2017. Remembering how strong their sound was, the three original members of the group reconnected, with a new name, Mustangs Of The West. They added two dynamic new players to complete the line-up: Canadian drummer Suzanne Morissette, and violinist/vocalist Aubrey Richmond from Shooter Jennings’s band. Barnett was soon sizing up potential record labels to find the new band a musical home. After hearing the band rehearse at Clear Lake Audio, Los Angeles label Blue Élan Records offered the band a deal on the spot.

Mustangs Of The West’s 2020 album release on Blue Élan Records, “TIME”, was produced by Mark Howard (Willie Nelson, Neil Young, Lucinda Williams, Emmylou Harris, U2).  “TIME” received acclaim from the San Francisco Chronicle, Americana Highways, Goldmine Magazine, No Depression, Pulse, Guitar Girl Magazine, renowned Nashville journalist Holly Gleason, and many other music writers.

As the music business slowly recovered from COVID shutdowns, Kirk Pasich, the visionary founder of Blue Élan, started new music imprint KZZ Music. Mustangs Of The West joined him at the new label. The result is “SEA OF HEARTBREAK” to be released in July 2023.
Co-produced by Pasich and Irish producer Colin Devlin, the album is a powerful showcase for the vocals of Spring, Montgomery, Richmond and Morissette, with the atmospheric signature sounds of electric guitarist Barnett and some incredibly beautiful violin work from Richmond.  

Coming full circle, band members Spring and Barnett were recently interviewed for the upcoming documentary “Palomania”, adding their stories to the rich musical history of The Palomino club. “Crooked Road”,  a song written by Spring and the late Rusty Young from Poco, is also a featured track on the album “MY FRIEND: A TRIBUTE TO RUSTY YOUNG”, debuting in the Top 10 on the Billboard Compilation albums chart.

His work heavily emphasizes the benefit of applying academic research: it is not enough to only learn about communication. Developing nonverbal communication skills to communicate more effectively is vital. His most recent research interest is exploring the role of biology and communication. His perspective is that only focusing on social influences limits understanding. One's biology influences their communication and their communication influences their biological reactions.

Dr. Furlich has published two books, both of which were Amazon #1 bestsellers in their respective categories. Additionally, he has presented his research on national television, national radio and national podcasts. In his free time, he enjoys working out, watching sports, traveling and reading to learn more about human behaviors, spirituality and Christianity.

Guest Biography:

Eli Friedman, M.D., FACC, is a medical and sports cardiologist at Miami Cardiac & Vascular Institute, a part of Baptist Health South Florida. Dr. Friedman serves as the Miami Cardiac & Vascular Institute’s medical director of sports cardiology. Dr. Friedman joined Miami Cardiac & Vascular Institute from Memorial Health System. There, he served as the chief of cardiac services at Memorial Regional Hospital and the system’s medical director of sports cardiology.

His research has been published in the Journal of Emergency Medical Services and Congestive Heart Failure. He has also co-authored educational content for the American College of Cardiology. Dr. Friedman’s approach to patient care is to spend as much time – if not more – listening to his patients than talking. By doing so, he can incorporate each person’s beliefs, opinions and thoughts into a treatment plan instead of a “one-size-fits-all” approach. He believes it is everyone’s right to feel as good as possible. He considers it is his job to do everything he can to help by using the skills he’s been privileged to learn. When he is not treating patients, Dr. Friedman enjoys spending time with his family, running, cycling and training.
