Culpepper album

"Anna Culpepper presents Ryan's Songbird."

"Regarding your review of Anna Culpepper's latest musical insult: Of all of the worthy artists in Rapture, why you continue to devote column inches to this musical GREMLIN is beyond my imagination."
―Sander Cohen[src]

Ryan's Songbird is an album produced by Anna Culpepper. The album was sold at many music shops in the city and can be seen advertised in several places in Rapture.


Anna Culpepper grew irate with Andrew Ryan after observing various infringements on the core ideals of which Rapture was founded. She took particular issue with Sander Cohen, an accomplished musician and defender of Ryan's policies[1] and sought to comment on both men's actions through her professional medium; the end result was the vinyl "Ryan's Songbird." The album itself was made to criticize the work of Sander Cohen, whom she felt was just a propaganda tool for Ryan.

The album left quite an impact, especially on its target. The hypersensitive artist was enraged by the scathing critique of his work. When a paper responded favorably to her work, he sent an incensed letter to the editor denouncing her as "dangerous."[2] Eventually the negative attention became too much, and he demanded Ryan take care of the problem at its source.[3] This resulted in the assassination of Anna Culpepper.[4] Afterwards, Cohen started taking down posters for the album throughout Rapture and stored them in his apartment in Mercury Suites in a desperate attempt to make the criticisms go away.
