Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) June 10, 2010
Sponsored by HopeLab.org, Singer-Songwriter (and Columbus, Georgia native) Ryan Hamner, is traveling the South and Southeast this summer for Ryan Hamner Presents: “Hear the Heart” Summer Tour 2010.
In 2009, Hamner teamed up with producer extraordinaire Jeff Tomei on his new album “Between the Lines.” Tomei was responsible for producing such noted bands as Matchbox 20, Smashing Pumpkins, and singer-songwriter Edwin McCain. Since then, several of Hamner’s songs have been licensed for use on MTV, Oxygen, Lifetime, and other major television networks, and last year his song, "Lay Me Down" received national airplay.
During this free tour, he is performing songs from "Between the Lines" at local cancer research centers, cancer patient lodges, hospitals, and universities in several cities, raising awareness and funds for cancer research and charities. Now, thirty-three, Hamner himself is a four-time Hodgkin’s Lymphoma cancer survivor, and has been living cancer free for the past twelve years.
A professional musician since the age of seventeen, Hamner also teamed up with Blue Cross/Blue Shield in 2000 to author and illustrate a successful children’s book about surviving cancer entitled,“You’ll Be Alright, Buddy.” All proceeds from the book were distributed to various cancer-related charities.
