Singer, songwriter, and performing artist Ryan Ellis announces his latest project, NITE-N-DAY (Provident Label Group/Sony Music), is out now. Released this past Friday, the southern California-based artist debuted the five-song EP the same day at WFNM, the WE FOUND NEW MUSIC showcase, in Los Angeles. Click HERE to listen to the EP. Along with his new songs, three music videos will also be released over the following weeks.
“NITE-N-DAY speaks to my personal journey of transformation and finding love that changed everything,” Ellis shares. “I used to live a life focused solely on myself, going 100 miles an hour on everything in excess, but I still felt empty. Then, I found Jesus. He showed me I was worthy of love and helped me cope with the anxiety and pain. God brought light to my life, chasing away all the shadows and making everything clearer. It was like night and day, a complete transformation. I questioned myself and realized that I couldn’t run from love. That’s something I still go through, but writing these songs is a reminder and a reflection of the relationship I have with the Holy Spirit and also the flow of life and relationships and people. God is in it all…NITE-N-DAY.”
Performing at this year’s WFNM/WE FOUND NEW MUSIC showcase, which is an artist discovery platform dedicated to introducing exceptional artists to music industry leaders, organizations, and fans, Ellis was honored to share his message through his new songs. Since 2012, WFNM has helped introduce artists through its bi-weekly FM radio show on The Socal Sound and Dash Radio, including live acoustic performances and interview sessions, blogs, and three weekly showcases with many of today’s most relevant artists, including Billie Eilish, Alec Benjamin, and Imagine Dragons.
Joining him at the showcase to share their support were, pictured below left to right, Paul Duncan (co-writer with Ellis), Tedd T (producer), Ellis, Chris Bell (Maximum Artist Management), and Joel Flatow (SVP, Artist & Industry Relations/Chief, West Coast Operations RIAA).
