The Tom Ryan Project

EAD's primary goal is to promote public awareness of the variety and excellence of participating disabled artists and to assist them along their individual paths to success. Through the mentorship program of EAD, musician member Tom Ryan acquired skills in recording and arranging resulting in the release of one of his original songs, fully developed and produced by EAD, at this event. The song, "Have a Heart," has a tender, non-judgmental message promoting diversity, equity and inclusion. The EAD Band's showcase concert will take place in front of a studio audience and be simulcast virtually to multiple sites such as Facebook, YouTube, and Strong Island Entertainment.
