Singer/Songwriter and Producer Ryan D. Rutley Takes Us To The WIN
Ryan D. Rutley gets believers into a winner’s mindset with the release of WIN, his latest single available now on all digital and streaming platforms from his Psalms Music Group imprint. Win is the first single from his forthcoming project, Altar Call —scheduled for a Summer 2018 release. The inspirational track features the song stylings of the incomparable Dodi— of the urban Gospel duo Pam and Dodi fame making for an rapturous worship and praise celebration. This song’s simple message is that God honors prayer and reassures that His children are conquerors. Rutley affirms he wants everyone to own their winning season. It’s one thing to win, but the “ER” in winner represents ownership of your victory. Rutley takes listeners on a journey with anointed rhythms and lyrics that are sure to resonate with all who have experienced a setback, but in the end–—God worked it out!
Rutley a Christian/Gospel music industry veteran for more than 2 decades pulls on his musical influences and the Detroit Sound to create memorable melodies. Inspired by the likes of Commissioned, Ben Tankard, Marvin Sapp, Aaron Lindsey, Richard Smallwood, Lamar Campbell, Asaph Ward, Curtis Turrentine, Parkes Stewart, and Doobie Powell, Rutley merges old school harmonies with new school lyrics and contemporary music
Following the success of his earlier projects Worship…the Journey (2014), and Reflections (2012), Altar Call, Rutley’s 3rd studio album, will continue the standard of musical excellence, featuring collaborations with notable artists such as Jason Champion, Ashlie Johnson, Tim White and legendary Delores Mom Winans. Rutley reminds us not to forget the source of our existence. We need to look to Jesus in the midst of the situations we find ourselves in. “With all the happenings politically, economically, spiritually and emotionally, we are looking at our resources and not the source…and biblically, we should go to the source,” Rutley says. “I love all the aspects of the Sunday morning service; praise and worship, preached word and Altar Call. But, I want people to know (the altar) is not just for sinners. It’s a place of refreshing and redemption for everybody,” he adds.
Rutley’s passion for Christ and genuine love for ministry and music is in his blood. The gifting of ministry flows in his family, with his father serving as Bishop and his brother serving as pastor. Rutley wears several hats as well— father, CEO, musician, and minister at Christian Tabernacle Church in Southfield, MI. The Rhythm of Gospel Award winner plans a promo tour with radio stops in support of the new single and album release in the coming weeks.
