On Monday 20th March, Onslow St Audrey’s School hosted a unique Online Safety, Cyber Bullying & Pressures event featuring upcoming singer. “Tom Ryder”.
The purpose of this event was to empower and inform year 7, 8 and 9 students to make the right choices in regards to Online Safety & Cyber Bullying as well as discussing pressures teenagers go through. During the event Tom reflected on his own experiences.
Tom Ryder is a soulful singer/songwriter; a dynamic guitarist with a soaring vocal. His debut single ‘Silence Breaking Through Sound’ raised thousands of pounds for Macmillan and attracted the attention of music legend Rod Stewart, while follow-up EP ‘Strings Attached’ received acclaim across the BBC Introducing Network.
Influenced by Tracy Chapman and Damien Rice among others, Tom has been described as “full of passion, promise and pedigree” (BuzzJack) and a writer of “stunning songs infused with meaning and heart” (Indie Music Mag). Having just completed a tour of UK venues, he is now preparing to release his eagerly-awaited new single in spring 2017. Check out a couple of his links below;
