Nashville recording artist, Ryan Montgomery, joins Tortuga’s Rock the Ocean Foundation and Fort Lauderdale Beach Sweep this Saturday, March 10th from 7am-11am at The Hub, located on 300 S. Ft. Lauderdale Beach Blvd, Ft. Lauderdale, FL for a massive beach sweep to “Change the Tide”.
“The beach has always been a place for me to surf, relax and hang out with family and good friends, and I am super excited for the opportunity to support Rock the Ocean Foundation and The Tortuga Music Festival in their efforts to conserve and improve South Florida’s beaches and oceans.”
Rock The Ocean Foundation is a not-for-profit whose mission is to increase public awareness about the issues impacting the world’s oceans and to support scientific research, education and ocean conservation initiatives through benefit concerts, lifestyle apparel, brand partnerships, and entertainment industry events.
The Tortuga Music Festival was created to assist those that are active in Rock the Ocean’s five core issues: overfishing, shark conservation, coral reef degradation, marine pollution and turtle conservation, generating thousands of dollars in donations yearly.
Chris Stacey, founder of both Rock the Ocean and Tortuga Music Festival, announces that over one million dollars has been raised to date for the protection of our oceans.

About Ryan Montgomery
From an early age… it was apparent to Ryan’s family and friends how drawn he was to music: drumming with any item that remotely resembled a drumstick, playing his guitar non-stop, listening to every genre of music available, and sitting in the front row at church to be close to the band.
”Music has always been my passion for as long as I can remember. When I was a little kid I used to sit absolutely transfixed whenever there was any kind of live music available to watch knowing that I wanted to perform like that one day.”
Although music was always at the forefront, Ryan had other interests as a youth as well. Growing up in South Florida allowed Ryan to participate in numerous sports and his athleticism enabled him to excel in many including travel ice hockey, basketball, competitive waterskiing, surfing and bodybuilding.
Ryan was able to successfully balance school, sports and music throughout his elementary, middle and high school years and as he entered college made a decision to focus primarily on both his college education and music.
“My family has always supported me and encouraged me to set goals and work hard to achieve them…I am thankful for the gifts I have been given and am extremely blessed to be able to do what I love.”
