His name may be new as a signed artist, but California native Ryan Ellis has been preparing for this moment his entire life. Sharing his songwriting talents to pen songs such as "Resurrection Power" by Chris Tomlin, which earned him a GMA Dove Award nomination and ASCAP's "Most Performed Song" award in 2018, he’s also written for Matt Redman, Natalie Grant, Meredith Andrews, Housefires, and more. Accolade, however, is not the fuel of Ellis’s fire. “I’m a devoted husband and father first,” he says. “I have a deep love for Jesus and the way that songs draw people in to experience Him, to be inspired and encouraged and ultimately to let them know that they are loved. Music is the language that everyone can understand, and it’s all I know how to do.”
He is now ready to share “Heart of the Father” (Provident Label Group/Sony Music), a breathtaking introduction to his own redefinition of worship. Harking back to his pop and R&B influences while evoking the sunny vibes of his hometown of San Diego, he explains, "This song was written in a season where I was really discovering the grace of God and His kindness, patience, and mercy. When I was a worship pastor living in Isla Vista, California, the goal behind our ministry was to show that it doesn’t matter where you are or what stage of life you’re in -- there’s always going to be the grace and love of God waiting for you. He always accepts us exactly where we’re at and walks alongside us. I feel like this song shows what it is to be a believer and how we’re called to walk and love people."
Loving music for as long as he can remember, it was when Ellis joined the Navy after high school when he reconnected with Jesus, realizing that his voice and songwriting are his connection to faith. After completing five years of service, including a tour of duty in Afghanistan, he recorded his first project, Isla Vista Worship, followed by two EP’s, Live from the Upper Room II and Kingdom Glory. He then dropped a dual LP "Lyfe and Rysponse", both a challenge and invitation to listeners to be candid about the struggle yet stand firm in the truth and promises of God.
“Heart of the Father” will appear on Ellis’ forthcoming project - describing his next chapter on his musical journey as "soulful and faith-based with west coast vibes" - slated to release later this year.
