An avid progressive, Cooder has championed different cultures, children's defense, and the music of the world as a true citizen of Planet Earth.

The Prodigal Son, Ry's first album in six years again looks to the past for inspiration, from Blind Willie Johnson and Blind Alfred Reed, the songs are rooted in America's unique songbook. With son Joachim, Cooder paints a sonic vision of sin and salvation.
