Underneath the skin of each of us lies a goodness. A truth. A peace. “The light.” When we begin to see and embrace each other as this, we can move past all boundaries that keep us separate. Ryan Brolliar, the musician and mastermind behind “The Music is Medicine Tour”, inspires others to find a new way of looking at one another. Join Ryan and his “Jambulance”, as they leave on a 9 month journey to all 50 states visiting and playing music for people in need! A native to Lake Tahoe, CA, grew up playing music and entertaining crowds from the age of five. Son of two teachers, he was also drawn to education and became a schoolteacher, discovering his natural knack for bringing out the best in his students and his peers.
He is now a touring musician, public speaker, and author. Ryan lives his life largely from a quote by Albert Einstein’s, which says, “Only a life lived in the service to others, is worth living.” His latest book, “The Music Is Medicine Tour,” tells the incredible story of his nine month tour across the entire United States (50 hospitals / 50 states) playing music and speaking to people in need. He has been featured nationally on news channels and stages in front of 500+ sharing his message, “See the light, Be the light” to those who need it most.
“Ryan’s inspiring journey is a lasting testament to the incredible healing power that music can have in people’s lives. Ryan’s example shows that one person’s will and love can positively impact a great number of people across the entire country!”
