Brady Rymer started his career as a bassist in a New Jersey Jam Band called “From Good Homes“.  In the 90’s the band was starting to take off.  The band performed up and down the East Coast. They landed opening slots for Bob Dylan and The Grateful Dead’s Bob Weir and swapped headlining duties with the Dave Matthews Band and Hootie and the Blowfish.

Choosing to start families instead of constant travel, the band broke up in 1999. Brady started recording children’s songs and formed The Little Band that Could. Last year Brady and the band were nominated for a Grammy award.

Recently Brady released a new album called  “Love Me for Who I Am,”. These songs were inspired by the students at Celebrate the Children School, a New Jersey school for Children with alternative learning styles. Many of the students are affected by autism, Asperger’s Syndrome or related disorders.

The songs can be heard as anthems for differently-abled children and their families; at the same time every child will find something to relate to in this collection. The songs invite deeper understanding and appreciation of children with autism and other disorders by shedding light on just how  much we all have in common.

The album got a rave review from Temple Grandin for its sweet tunes of acceptance of children with special needs.
