Ryan's original music has done well on the Indie Charts, but he hopes this contests his big break.

"I'm not the best singer. I don't know how I made it to the top 25 because I ain't no boom the best singer, but I give whatever I can.

I write my own songs. I'll bring whatever I can to the table," says Pugal.

The winner receives 10-thousand dollars, and a record deal. - KHON FOXChannel 2NEWS
