Ryan Bowser, also known as GHOST

Ryan Bowser, also known as GHOST, began producing from a skating-rink recording studio in his hometown, St. Louis. He sold tracks to local artist such as the St. Lunatics and can be heard singing background on their Free City Album on Groovin Tonight Featuring Brian McKnight. This was just the beginning of Ryans country grammar. The placement lead to co-writing and producing for Arista Recording artist, Toya. He produced over 50 percent of the album including her most popular hit I DO! The single and debut album 'Toya', sold approximately 400,000 copies but thats not all. In 2001 Ryans remake of Patti Labelles Love Need and Want You transformed into Dilemma and was featured on Nellys album, Nellyville. The single landed at 1 on the Billboard Hot R&B/Hip Hop Singles & Tracks, Hot Rap Tracks and on the Hot 100 as the first rap song to hold the 1 spot for 12 consecutive weeks earning a Grammy for Best R&B and Rap Collaboration. Dilemma now sits at 64 on Billboards Greatest Songs Of All Time and is the most successful song of Nelly's career, giving him his first number-one single in many countries, such as Australia, Belgium, Germany, Ireland, The Netherlands, Switzerland, United Kingdom and the United States. Dilemma was nominated twice for Best Music Video at the 2003 Soul Train Awards and MTV Music Video Awards.

Ryans success led him to producing for Rock City, Monica, 112, Mario, Miss Penelope, J-Kwon, SunNy, T. Waters, Rubben Studdard, Trina, Paul Wall, Ma$e, Pretty Ricky, Q. Parker, SnL, J.R. Get Money, London, Mika Means, and Q Da Kid, including chart hitting singles like Take It Slow (O'Ryan), My Baby (Bow Wow feat. Jagged Edge), Dat Boy Chevy (Noah Atl Soundtrack), Bobbin My Head, Ball Out/500 1's (Blak Jak feat T-Pain), and scoring his first movie "4 Minutes".
