Rising singer/producer Joe Ryan III offers inspiration on his latest project, 3rd Service. The 14-track mixtape was produced by Ryan, with contributions from Nelson Johnson and Rodd King.
“For me, 3rd service is my way of being myself and presenting my faith at the church steps instead of behind the pulpit,” Ryan tells Rated R&B. “I’m still growing. I’m still imperfect as the next person but it doesn’t make my or other’s faith invalid in this modern day walk. It’s basically purpose over perfection, removing the assumption that being Christian means being perfect.”
3rd Service is the follow-up to Ryan’s independently released album, 1879. Ryan is currently prepping for his major label single debut, which is slated to drop later this spring.
