Gooch and the Motion, Performing at Rowan University

“I am a quadriplegic, musician, writer, & a man of many hats. I am living my dream and want to inspire others to never give up on theirs.”
-Ryan 'Gooch' Nelson

Self described as ‘rusted-dirt’, Gooch’s music looks toward the future by fusing a number of different genres–including rock, country, blues, and hip hop–into cohesive and moving songs. From the blues to folk to rock to hip hop to country, Gooch does it all. His passion, love and medicinal usages of music and for conveying his thoughts, feelings, emotions, etc. are portrayed via the genre that’s most appropriate

Gooch has appeared on stage with The Allman Brothers, Tedeschi-Trucks Band, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Zac Brown Band and Robert Randolf
