Recording Artists and Music Professionals with Disabilities (RAMPD) is a fast-growing coalition dedicated to making disability inclusion and access a reality in the mainstream music industry. Their mission is to amplify disability culture, promote inclusion, and advocate for accessibility within the Music Industry
RAMPD was founded in May of 2021 by award-winning recording artist and advocate Lachi after a public talk between the Recording Academy and several disabled artists revealed that there is a serious lack of visibility, access, and representation for professional disabled artists.
Co-founder and internationally acclaimed touring artist and speaker Gaelynn Lea — along with a team of esteemed founding members — put out a call through RAMPD for artists, music professionals, and allies to sign up for pre-launch. RAMPD received hundreds of responses; proof the time is now to amplify disabled music professionals. Demonstrating what accessibility and inclusion looks like in the real world, RAMPD meets with leaders from top music firms, labels, publishers, and nonprofits, forging visionary partnerships that will forever advance the industry.
