Joyce Rouse (Earth Mama) is a singer, songwriter, actor, educator, and creator of the Earth Mama music projects. She addresses the critical issues facing our planet, as inspired by her love of Earth and her Masters Degree in Earth Literacy. She brings an integrated worldview to audiences in the language of music, rhythm and laughter. Her songs are heard world-wide through broadcast media, at Earth Mama concerts, and on her ten CDs, now played on six continents.
Her songs have been used extensively in educational venues and by international environmental and peace organizations such as the United Nations, UNESCO, and International Earth Charter, as well as the Smithsonian Institute.
In August, 1995, the United States celebrated the 75th anniversary of the 19th Amendment which granted women the right to vote. Joyce wrote and performed the theme song, Standing on the Shoulders. This song has introduced Joyce to the gracious wisdom and power of women's groups around the world.
She performs regularly at a wide variety of venues—anywhere people who care about the Earth gather. She weaves threads of science, spirit and art into each concert, and continues to write inspiring music in many styles with one goal in mind: "Helping Heal the Planet One Song at a Time."
