Album Notes
Ryan Hiraoka (aka “RSP”) is a self produced recording artist from the Big Island of Hawaii. Ryan first jumped on the music scene as a bassist for a variety of local acts. Ryan has performed with many of Hawaii's top recording artists. These artists include Damon Williams, Pomai & Loeka, Fiji, Jake Shimabukuro, The Manao Company, B.E.T., Three Plus, Lukela of Ekolu, RJ “Lanui” Kaneao, Mana Kaleilani Caceres, Kapena, Next Generation, Braddah Walter and Ilona Irvine.

Ryan is an educated musician that received a Bachelor of Arts degree in Music from the University of Hawaii at Manoa. Ryan has been involved with the music business for over 14 years as a performer & has matured into a musical force as a recording artist. Ryan is also the founder of his own record label/music production company called “Rubbah Slippah Productions.”

In 2006, Ryan released his debut album called “Big Island Music.” The album proved to be a strong introduction as the hit single “Big Island Ladies” took over the airwaves of Hawaii. The “Big Island Ladies” music video was also broadcasted in heavy rotation on OC 16’s “Overdrive Live” television show.

In 2007, Ryan released the highly acclaimed “RSP CREW (Vol. 1)” compilation album. The album featured a select group of local singers from the Big Island. The goal behind the compilation album was to showcase the undiscovered talent of the Big Island. The album was a breath of fresh air as numerous songs off the album hit radio stations statewide.

In 2008, Ryan looked to widen the genre of island music with the release of his follow up solo album called “Hawaii & Beyond.” The effort was proven a success after Ryan was nominated for a “Na Hokuhanohano” award in the R&B album of the year category. The hit single “I'm Sorry” spawned a music video which has been broadcasted on OC16's “Dis N Dat” television show.

In 2009, Ryan teamed up with Ilona Irvine who is better known as one of Hawaii's best female vocalist. The two jumped in the studio & created the hit single “Island Boy” which has taken the state by storm. The “Island Boy” music video is now being played on OC16's “Overdrive Live” television show.

In 2010, Ryan hopes to score big with his 3rd solo release “Before My Last Breath.” Scoring rave reviews from multiple newspaper critics, the album looks to be Ryan’s best album yet. Its first single "Fighting For Love" made its debut at 1 on KCCN. Fans also gave it their stamp of approval by helping Ryan win his first “Hawaii Music Award” for R&B album of the year.
