This EP was released in September 2013 by Gotee Records. It isn't the first time this Idaho-based singer/songwriter has been pacted with a major Christian label - Ryan once had the 'Yesterday Today Forever' EP out though BEC Recordings. Here's hoping Gotee give Ryan a full album soon as this is every bit as good as the successful acoustic-tinged pop of a Brandon heath. With tracks full of looping percussion beats while Ryan writes memorable melodies and lyrics which make their spiritual points well. The title track tells us to get going with God while "The Human Side" is almost as good. The fourth song on the set "Speak Life" is an acoustic version of a song he co-wrote with TobyMac which was featured on Toby's 'Eye On It' mega hit. Yep, Ryan is a skilled songsmith.
