RIP @ Bratfest
Rip will be at Bratfest, Memorial Day Weekend, in Madison, Wisconsin!
In 2016, Rip entered the studio to start work on his third studio effort, “Trinity,” which is completely different from any of his past projects. After coming to terms with and facing an addiction he’s had for more than half his life, Rip’s personal and professional career turned to focus more on Christ. “I reached a point in life where I was on my floor in tears saying ‘I can’t do this anymore.’” The new album takes a dark look at his struggles, addictions, and demons that he’s had to face his whole life, most of with which he’s just started coming to terms. The album is a tribute to his personal savior, Jesus Christ (The Father, The Son, and The Holy Spirt), and brings hope to others by letting them know that it’s ok to be broken and imperfect, our God loves us all the same. “Trinity,” Rip’s third studio album, which features Katie Scullin, A.N.T., and Sincere, was released May 19, 2017. Later that year it was entered on the ballot for the 60th Annual Grammy Awards. “Trinity” was considered for Best Contemporary Christian Album, and three songs from the album were also each considered for Best Contemporary Christian Single.
