ARTIST OF THE DAY
Ryan has been playing worship music since he was 18-years-old, after his youth pastor surprised him by giving him a guitar. From there, Ryan began performing at summer camps, mission trips, and youth groups. The singer also formed an acoustic duo with fellow singer Paul Wright, while attending Northwest Christian College in Eugene, Oregon.
After years of writing songs and performing live shows, Ryan caught the attention of TobyMac, who signed him to his label, Gotee Records.
Besides making albums, Ryan is currently serving as worship leader at Vertical Church Boise, Idaho. He is also a husband, and a father to two boys.
Ryan's debut album, Holding Nothing Back was birthed during a season of extreme personal heartache and uncertainty. On the heels of the death of my mother from bone cancer; his wife's miscarriage of twins; the division of their home church; and a series of setbacks in his music career—in the midst of this fiery storm— Ryan found myself very disillusioned with God, shaking his fist at Him in anger.
During this time Ryan says, "I felt the "still, small voice" of the Lord. He began to ask me, 'If you were to lose everything, would I still be enough for you as your God, as your Savior?' I was extremely convicted and began to weep, knowing I had put my hope and security in things and people rather than in Jesus. I immediately began to pray with a broken, repugnant heart, literally saying the words, 'Jesus, I don't want anything coming in between You and me; It doesn't mater what I have to go through, I’m holding nothing back from You.'"

The Lord will command his lovingkindness in the daytime, and His song will be with me in the night, a prayer to the God of my life.
