Biography

Gotta love filling this stuff out....well here goes, I'm an Arizona native.....I think my mother was playing music 24/7 while I was in the womb.....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.....influenced by all genres I write what comes through to the soul...and don't limit myself to one category.

I also feel that the people that are supposed to read this will and that somehow together we can all make a difference......

A little over a year ago, I packed up and left everything behind in AZ and moved to Nashville, TN to further my music/songwriting experiences in search of the DREAM.

Oh, and recently my song "keep movin' on" was voted #1 on the American Country Radio Network...can I get a Nashville...YEHAWW!! ;-)

AND **this just in...My song "Scars" - Thanks to sonicbids is going on a Global Compilation project called "HOPE - love is answer" due out DEC 9th worldwide. Steve Zuckerman "the producer" is a grammy winning producer for the Les Paul and friends CD.

**Also just in 2.1.07
My song "Scars" and "For the ones I love" were both chosen out of 14,000 songs as a Finalist in the ISC Songwriting Competition...(yehaww!!)

p.s. take a chance on me and i won't let you down....no drugs, no alchohol....no addictions besides love for God, family, friends, people and music....and pets too ;-0)

Lyrics

Here we are "Scars"

Written By: Ryan "ryno" Nicholson

Now here we are, standing on the edge of faith
Our heads down, hands buried in our face
And the tears fall down, as we ride that drop of pain
Here we are, strugglin’ again

Now here we are, starin’ at the blinding sun
Questioning, all that has begun
And we raise our hands, for the fear it has not won
Here we are, standing with the sun….we are “one”

Scars, they make us who we are
Have you woken to your heart and the strength that lies within you?

Now here we are, facing questions that we don’t know
A bigger plan…a bigger message to un-code
And each day is gonna come, and it’s up to us to show
Now here we are…we’re all but alone…we are “one”

Scars, they make us who we are
Have you woken to your heart and the strength that lies within you?

The sun will rise again….

Scars, they make us who we are
Have you woken to your heart and the strength that lies within you?

Now here we are, standing on the edge of faith
Our heads down, hands buried in our face
and our tears fall down, as we ride that drop of pain
Here we are, please know…that everything’s gonna be O.K…..

Nothing as beautiful

Written By: Ryan

Nothing as beautiful

Girl before the day I met you I was free as a bird
Seen the most beautiful things on this rock we call earth
Went to New York City to see Miss Liberty Shine
And the sight of Niagra falls just blew my mind

Headed south for smoky mountains, The trees all aglow…
Then to white sandy beaches on florida’s emerald coast
Saw the space shuttle takin’ off….pickin’ up speed…..
Made my heart pound, my palms sweat…was brought to my knees….
Still nothing's as beautiful, seen nothing as beautiful…seen nothing as beautiful as you…

Chorus
I’m on a high, can this be real?
One look into your eyes and I’m head over heels
I’ve seen all the beauty that a man might wish to come true
But nothing as beautiful as you…..

I went flying through the Rockies, with my eyes open wide
at those white tipped mountains greeting blue Colorado skies
Stared down a blue whale off the California coast
Even hiked majestic trails in the Redwood forest….

Grand Canyon was my favorite, its magnificent size
Like it was carefully carved for the pleasure of my eyes
Magic red rocks layers…..reaching for miles
Left me humbled and speechless…… couldn’t help but smile…
Still nothing's as beautiful, seen nothing as beautiful…seen nothing as beautiful as you…

Chorus
Solo
Seen nothing as beautiful, no nothing as beautiful…seen nothing as beautiful as you…

Chorus (doubled with new 2nd half)

I’m on a high and I can’t believe
That heaven sent and angel like you for me
I’ve seen a lot of beauty in my days….ain’t that the truth
But nothing as beautiful as you…

A lot to live for

Written By: Ryan "ryno" Nicholson

Around town on a Saturday afternoon
A big smile on your kid sitting next to you
The weekends, the seasons, a miracle in bloom

A long drive on a country road passing through
Complete strangers smiling right back at you
Your first pet, the sunset, now don’t forget

That when you’re feeling down, turn it around and sing

(Chorus) There’s a lot to live for, a reason to believe
no looking down, it’s only from here

Yeah, there’s a lot to live for, a reason to see the little things
that make life so sweet.

Right now just living this life for you
A night out with friends catching tunes
A good book, a new look staring back at you in the mirror

Summertime, no homework left to do
And the love your doggie brings to you
A day off, a pay off, that you didn’t plan
Another helping hand, someone who understands you!

(Chorus)

(Bridge) Take all those hard times and wash them away
Leave worries behind, let the pain slip away
It’s all in God’s time anyway…

(Chorus)
