Introducing Ryan Toby

Tuesday, August 01, 2006

The singer/songwriter/producer has finally decided to make his next project a solo effort. Ryan's debut offering Soul Of A Songwriter, released on his own independent label (Overflow Entertainment), delivers an album destined to rejuvenate the lost R&B singer tradition of smoothly sensitive urban music.

You may remember him from the movie Sister Act 2 or the group City High.

Wyclef Jean invited Ryan to sign with his label, and Ryan was partnered with Robby Pardio and Claudette Ortiz in the group City High, formed with the intent of creating another super group like the Fugees. City High released a self-titled album in 2001, earning them a Grammy nomination. The album sold millions worldwide and the group toured for approximately two years.
To date, Ryan's production discography reads like a who's who of music royalty. He has written for Mary J. Blige, Brian McKnight, LL Cool J, Ruben Studdard, Joe, Amerie, New Edition, Ginuwine, 112, Monica, Tyrese, Kevin Lyttle, Mario, and Chris Brown, to name a few.

Soul Of A Songwriter is a modern testament to timeless quality. When asked about his upcoming solo project, Ryan explained, "I think the industry is ready for good songwriting. Most of the songs I've written for other people have been hits, so I thought that it was time to write some for myself."

It's time for a true R&B collection. Ryan has an inescapable presence and a solid track record.
