Holding Nothing Back EP  (Gotee Records)
by Ryan Stevenson

FOR FANS OF: Jonny Diaz, Chris August
Rating: 3 Stars

All four songs on this EP are strong, fueled by Ryan Stevenson’s stalwart vocal. The radio single, “Holding Nothing Back,” stands out in creativity. “The Human Side” is also strong and warrants a comparison to tobyMac, though he doesn’t quite reach far enough lyrically. Overall, enough good material to make listeners eager to hear what’s next for Stevenson.
