BIO

Gotta love filling this stuff out....well here goes, I'm an Arizona native.....I am pretty sure my mother (an incredible singer in her own right) was playing music 24/7 while I was in the womb....I think I remember a lot of DISCO action....when I was born, she was ready to challenge me at "Name that tune".... to this day, we still battle who can get a song name faster. Yes, mom usually wins.

Other than that, I'm just like anybody else out there that feels like they're here on earth to make a difference with their lives. Music happens to be one way that I found I can do that.....I also feel that the people that are supposed to read this will and that somehow together we can all make a difference......

Here's a few questions some fans asked so i thought i'd post em' here....

What inspires Ryan Nicholson? 

"God. it's amazing and humbling to look at the big picture and see God in everyone and everything. He/She ;) has given us this amazing opportunity to be individually unique and to pursue life, leisure and happiness to our hearts content." 

What about musical inspirations?

We'll be here all day on this one.  To be honest it all depends on the mood, I grew up listening to all sorts of artists in the arenas of country, rock, top 40, contemporary, pop, metal.....probably like most people, I just enjoy good music. Music that has meaning and music that has a great melody usually strikes a chord with me...yes... from metallica to the judds...I favor all tastes....

One thing I can remember is that my mom always told me to "don't make my brown eyes blue." If you know that one I'll be amazed.....

I do feel very fortunate in that I've been able to find something that I believe in.  That special something that makes me come alive....it's the music and the love for people I meet at my concerts that really keep me going....music is my passion, it's what i do...it's an integral part of WHO I AM...

Yes, I have gotten so much support from so many people and can't thank each individual enough. So here goes, to all you reading this, THANK YOU! for helping me pursue my dream. Without you, I would be at best a shower singer..not that it's bad singing in the shower, some of my best work is in the presence of an herbal essence bottle....in no particular order (Chad Ashby, Wayne Kandas, Heather Nicholson, Rojoe & Sapphire, Martin Kupper, Pete Oliphant, Scott Benedetto, Phil Rowe (RIP), Uncle Mark, Vicki Nicholson, Ron Nicholson, Lindsay Nicholson, Debbie Yates, ....you were all there for me from the start......yes, there are many more but these were the people who lit the fire before the music was created....I love you and thank you)

On a serious note, thanks to everyone that continues to come out and be a part of the ultimate experience. and thanks for sharing my music with your friends, family"

If this were a perfect world, where would you be and what would you be doing?

"I'd be doing what I'm doing this very minute. I try more and more to enjoy the now, this precious moment I have been given. I totally enjoy the music process, from creation, producing & recording. It's me and It's who i am.  I just hope the music continues to inspire and help others find meaning in their lives as much as it has in my own life. Every day is a new day. Grab it...and dare to live your dream.."

WANT EVEN MORE HISTORY?? 

In case ya want to know a lil' more bout me, I'm a singer/songwriter that transplanted into the Nashville scene in (2005) back before COUNTRY WAS COOL ;) with my high school sweetheart "Heather".   Since arriving, I've become a proud father of three beautiful little girls, Madelyn Grace, Ava Faith and Audrey Rose.  I have learned the importance of injecting a lil' patience in your life and not taking things too seriously.  I write a variety of music styles but mostly what enters through the soul.......trying not to limit myself to a specific genre as I've been influenced by many (including the likes of country, rock, southern rock, pop, r&b, rap, rap/rock...well, you get the idea ;- currently I am in the process of writing and plugging my tunes here in Nashville.  I am also the other half of Nashville Duo - Willow Park (www.willowparkproject.com)

As you'll see if you play the AUDIO Player at the top of this page, my music varies widely and I write for other ARTISTS including myself.  So if you like music, please take a moment to check out my tunes and consider purchasing a tune or two on ITUNES. Come friend me on Facebook, Tweet me on Twitter, and most of all, if ya want to help support my dream and other creative artists, please tell a friend or two about my music...it's the biggest compliment I could ever receive.....

I speak for all the indie musicians/songwriters out there, please buy MUSIC from your favorite non-radio based singer/writers...please don't steal it.....it will not only help keep us alive but also the community in which the new music comes from....we write cause we love it but unfortunately I know too many artists that struggled just a little too long.....and gave up...so thank you for your support in advance...

If ya wanna keep up to date with what's goin' on in "ryno world" please join my email list to the right of the page.
