Gooch Nelson’s Inspiring Music and Life Story Will Soon Be Available to the Public

On January 1, 2004, Ryan ‘Gooch’ Nelson was involved in a car accident that left him partially paralyzed. Left without the use of his legs and limited use of his hands, Gooch spent months in a hospital re-learning how to perform simple tasks like eating and taking care of himself. Through this difficult period, he relied on the support of loving friends and his passion for music. Eventually, this passion led him to learn playing slide guitar and sparked a musical career that has since taken him to the heights of the music industry.

After having played with bands like 61 North, Reverb Brothers and the Killer Beez, as well as opened for groups like the Zac Brown Band, the Allman Brothers Band, and Lynyrd Skynyrd, Gooch is finally ready to produce his first solo album. He is currently working with his new band Gooch and the Motion, under the guidance of 9 time Grammy winning producer Joe ‘The Butcher’ Nicolo. Drawing on a number of musical influences from rock, country and blues, this newest musical album will showcase Gooch’s awe-inspiring talents and define him as one of the music world’s truly unique superstars.

In addition to his music project, Gooch is also the subject of a documentary by Jonah Stern. The documentary will tell his story beginning with his tragic car accident, through the completion of his first solo album. The film will not only detail how he has overcome enormous adversity in his life to achieve musical success, but will also examine how he treats the daily challenges of life as a quadriplegic with patience, optimism and humor. His triumphant story will inspire anyone who has had to endure almost insurmountable obstacles to achieve their dreams.

In order to make the album and documentary possible, Gooch will need your support. Both projects are expensive and involve numerous components. Producing an album will involve recording, studio time, mixing, mastering and musicians, while filming will require shooting, editing, visual effects and musical scoring.

In order to fund these projects, Gooch has sponsored a crowdfunding campaign on Indiegogo. In return for your generous financial support, you can receive perks like an Exclusive Debut Vinyl Album, digital download, CDs, T-Shirt, production time with Joe Nicolo, professional photo shoot, songwriting session with Gooch, video shoot with Jonah Stern, website and social media package, or a live performance by Gooch and the Motion.
