WOW! What a couple of decades it’s been!! On this day 20 Years ago, March 21, 2000, I launched my Independent Record Label, #RipRecords, with my first credit card while still in High School. I had no idea what I was doing or how long it would last. With the Grace of God, family, friends, supporters, and fans like you all…we’ve had one heck of a journey! Check out this little video highlighting the journey from our humble beginnings as a punk kid from #Waukegan recording in his bedroom, to now serving God and being considered for multiple GRAMMY Nominations!
I wish I could share every single pic, message and Snaps I receive from you all…but it’s all just too much. Just know I appreciate every single one if you whoever rocked with me over the last 20 years!!! This is to you for keeping my childhood dream alive! To 20 more!!! 🙌🙏🎉

My IV’th studio solo album, “Delivered”, COMING SOON!!!
Rip has released a teaser for his new single & music video, “Jolene”, which will be released November 1, 2019. Rip first debuted “Jolene” at The World’s Largest Brat Fest in May. It will be his first single off his new album, “Delivered”, which is due in 2020.
On Friday, August 2, 2019 Rip headlined “Urban Fest 2019” in La Ceiba, Honduras. Check out this recap video + the brand new song he teased for the first time ever, “Bonita”, off his 4th solo album, Delivered, due out 2020!!!!
Recording Artist Rip just did something not many Christian or faith-based Recording Artists have done. He just got done playing a live 40 minute set on Top40/Rhythmic radio with songs off his latest release, “Trinity”. The performance was part of a radiothon hosted by Krista Uelmen, of “Krista & The Morning Rush,” on WJQM-FM in Madison, WI in an effort to bring awareness to mental health and to battle addiction. Every song performed by Rip brought glory to God. An openly Christian Recording Artist transcending into Top40/Rhythmic radio is rarely heard of in this day and age.
Rip just came back from the 61st Annual GRAMMY Awards where he was considered for “Best Contemporary Christian Performance & Song” for his single, “Drown”, as well as “Best Music Video” for his video “Satisfied”.
Rip is currently entering the studio to start work on a new album this year.

I may not be from WI originally…but WI has definitely become my #2 home for life. For the last 7 years, Madison & Badgers alike have supported my livelihood/DJ career and given me a place to call home. I have helped PLENTY of Badgers party their college years away and give them memories to last. I have probably seen and done pretty much all that you can being a DJ in Madison, WI. I have grown a spot in my heart for Madison. With that said, I was happy to be a part of their Final Four victory. Check out this video of Madison, WI celebrating their win last night at Whiskey Jacks on State St (Madison, WI).
