Ron Ryan / Bio

Ron was born in Somerville, NJ and fell in love with music as a small child. At 6, he started playing the drums and after his father, a NJ State Trooper, passed away his mother moved the family to South Florida. Once there he turned his attention to sports and excelled in football and wrestling in high school. Ron led the Santaluces Chiefs to the State semi-finals as the team's QB his senior year. He then went on to play WR for the JSU Gamecocks and helped his college team make it to the Division II National Championship after an undefeated season.

While in college, Ron majored in Criminal Justice and decided to follow in his father's footsteps and became a police officer in Boynton Beach, FL in 1992. Ron received numerous commondations during his ten year career including Officer of the Year Runner-Up in 1996 and Officer of the Year in 1997 for his proactive efforts on the department's "jump out" squad dealing predominantly with street level narcotics enforcement. Ron also became a member of the department's SWAT team.

In 2001, Ron left policework to pursue his entrepreunerial endeavors when he founded FreeGirl Apparel, Inc. and The FreeGirl Foundation, a line of women's activewear created to raise awareness surrounding gender-based violence directed toward females on a global scale. It was during this time that Ron tapped into his creative side and began writing. He became a multi-optioned screenwriter as well as having some of his poetry published in several off and online media outlets. Two of his urban comedy screenplays, 'The Ice Cream Man' and 'Rick Diculous' were optioned by one of the producers of 'All About The Benjamins'.

Ron's first attempt at songwriting was in 2009 when he wrote a country song titled 'Katie, Can You Hear Me." This song received high praises from Toby Keith's Show Dog Nashville and was held for further consideration. His follow-up song 'Breakdown' would also be held for further consideration by the same company.

Ron re-entered policework in 2010 while aggressively pursuing his music dreams. Since that time he has compiled an impressive multi-genre music portfolio which includes songs that have garnered attention from some of Nashville's most well known "A list" songpluggers, producers and performing artists.

His songs, 'Gotta Have a Dream', 'How Does it Feel', and 'Nice and Slow', have received several publishing offers for film/tv and ad synch licensing opportunities. One of his first co-writes, 'One Girl, One Guitar', received interest from the hit television series, 'Nashville'.

In 2013 Ron co-wrote a tribute song for Martin Richard, the youngest victim of the Boston Marathon bombings, which has touched the hearts of Boston's finest prompting phone calls from the Richard family and Boston Police Chief, Dan Linskey.

Ron also wrote a song titled 'Bleeding Blue', a song honoring police officers killed in the line of duty, recorded by Nashville Recording Artist, Alena Nicholson. He also co-wrote the theme song 'Wear Your Soul' for the Wear Your Soul Foundation, a not-for-profit organization created to help young people find their true passion in life while promoting a healthy active lifestyle and combating childhood obesity.

Just recently Ron has received signifcant interest from recording artists in cutting several of his songs. Additionally, he is being strongly considered by an up and coming Nashville company for a publishing deal as well as co-writes with a multi-hit songwriter. Ron is in hot pursuit of his first major cut and he will not stop until his music dreams are in custody.
