Rock Recording of the Year 2016 - Battle Cry, Ryan Daniel

Music is a stream of spirit and power. It can penetrate even the hardest of hearts. Music defines generations, eras, and cultures.  It can calm a restless infant or call a nation to battle.  Most of all, though, music is a gift.  I take my job and role in music very though I'm a caretaker or a steward of this gift.  This is the motivation behind all that I do and create.  I find great joy in helping talented people find their true identity as artists.


Syracuse, NY is where I grew up.  I was the youngest of five, all of us singers and musicians.  I received classical training from the time I was five years old. In addition to piano, I also played violin, viola, and trumpet (at least until my front teeth fell out).  I played in stage bands, orchestras and sang in choirs and chamber groups throughout my growing up years.  I went to college in Nashville, TN, playing and touring with the school's Top 40 recruiting band, as well as playing in clubs with my own band. Writing jingles for a Nashville ad agency is how I got my professional start in the music business. From there, I started touring, first with Michael W. Smith, and then with Amy Grant.  My brother-in-law, Chris Harris

​and I started a production company in 1986 and began producing records.  In 1992, we started our own publishing company to manage our growing song catalogs.  Fast forward through several years of songwriting and record production to 1998, and it was then that I began a developmental record label of my own called Gravity Records. Continuing to write songs and make records for artists such as dcTalk, Anointed and Jaci Velazquez, I launched into artist development as well with the opening of the Gravity record label. It was a busy time in my career.  In addition to developing new artists, in 2001 I began the journey of developing my own artistry, which culminated in a worship opera called Vapor.   The years since then have given me many opportunities to develop and empower artists, to do what I love, and to make an impact on the world through music.  I continue on that path and in that passion, writing, producing, developing, and now mentoring and teaching from my new home and recording studio in Minneapolis, MN.
