About Tom Ryan:
Whether listening to a soothing love song on the piano, the poly-rhythmic beat of his banjo or a rousing sing-a-long on the guitar, Tom Ryan’s songs are bound to catch your ear and then some.
Tom’s songs are a blend of Acoustic, Pop and Americana. Take several cups of James Taylor, Jackson Browne and Sting. Stir in a bit of Jim Brickman with a few heaping teaspoons of John Prine and Randy Newman. Add a memorable melody. Simmer with a dash of irony... You’ll have a feast that should last all night that leaves you begging for seconds and thirds!
Always seeking to find the universal in the personal, Tom’s songs range from the ridiculous to the sublime----meant to inspire, uplift, heal or just plain tickle your funny bone------just like real life!
Recording with genius producer/songwriter/musician, Tom Prasada-Rao, they created an incredibly uplifting album, “We Will Rise”. The musical synergy of these two minds/hearts/souls will be a treat for your ears, hearts and spirits. Namaste Tom Ryan PR
"Tom writes more songs than just about anyone I know, so the word is "prolific" is a no-brainer. But when you hear a piece like "How Many Points for My Son", you'll stop everything you're doing and know that there is power at work here."----David Roth
“Tom is a charter member of the ‘Song-a-day’ club.” ----------Steve Warner

"Tom's heart and mind ought to be declared as national treasures!" ----------Denise Jordan Finley
