The holy man dubbed as “The Reggae Hip-Hop Sensation”, Ryan Daniel, stopped by “Live From Studio 5!” this New Year’s Eve to welcome in 2015 with his righteously-awesome island sound. Backed with an impressive instrumental ensemble and his unfaltering love for The Creator, Daniel largely combines elements of - you guessed it - reggae and hip-hop to create an undeniably powerful process for spreading the word of his Lord and savior.
His origins bring us back to the Caribbean island of Trinidad, where he grew up in a Christian home and eventually became a large influence on the local dancehall music scene. Since then, Daniel has found tremendous success and an endless onslaught of accolades from several mediums. In 2006, three years after the release of his debut album Life In General, the compilation album Holy Hip Hop, Volume 3, of which Daniel contributed his original single “One Time”, reached #39 on the Billboard Gospel charts and was nominated for a Grammy. The same year, he was nominated for the Marlin Awards (a Caribbean Gospel music award) in three separate categories; Pop Recording of the Year, Ethnic Recording of the Year, and Music Video of the year. In 2013, Ryan placed 2nd in the Rawkzilla Battle of the Bands. The man has truly been blessed with an irrefutable talent for performance, and has his heart and mind set on bringing this musical embodiment of rock-steady salvation to every corner of God’s green Earth.
