Ryan Shaw

Stevie Wonder. Otis Redding. Marvin Gaye. Names revered all over the world, their melodies distinct and their voices sacred. Well, I'm ready to you all about someone who seems to be on the fast track to joining the three greats above. Ryan Shaw has been blessed with a voice sweeter than a fruit smoothie, and he's ready to share it. So listen up, because you might miss a lot.

Shaw grew up in a religious family, and quickly became a star gospel singer in his church. And now, he has applied his skills to something everyone can enjoy. On his debut album This is Ryan Shaw, the religious overtones are present but still very subtle. While many of his songs concern love and relationships, he certainly breaks out of his shell on tracks that are simply meant to get you up and shaking. As for the music, well it certainly follows in the same vain of Stevie Wonder's pop-funk amalgamation and reflects Earth, Wind, and Fire's ability to make you dance.

So join the party. Go out and get This is Ryan Shaw.
Listen to "Nobody" (5/5)
Listen to "We Got Love" (4.7/5)
