The Joy Ride

Ryan Stevenson

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.

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; the miscarriage of our twins; the division of our home church; and a series of setbacks in my music career—in the midst of this fiery storm—I found myself very disillusioned with God, shaking my fist at Him in anger. I remember questioning if He really actually loves me, and if He's actually good. I was at a point where I was yelling at him saying, "I don't trust You!"

During this time, 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."
