Following a seven-year stint as a paramedic, Pacific Northwest native Ryan Stevenson signed an exclusive agreement with Gotee Records in 2013 after capturing TobyMac's attention by co-writing the No. 1 and Grammy nominated single, "Speak Life".His first recording for the label was the Holding Nothing Back EP in 2013, which garnered the Top 25 single, "Holding Nothing Back". This was followed by 2015's full-length album Fresh Start, which featured the No. 1 radio single, "Eye of the Storm". With three No. 1 singles (two as an artist and one as a co-writer), a GRAMMY nomination, Billboard Music Award nomination, a Dove Award (2017), ASCAP honors and major tour bills with the likes of TobyMac, MercyMe, Newsboys and Matt Maher, among others, Ryan has already distinguished himself as a rare talent whose unique perspective guides his honest lyrics and sonic sensibilities.
