Recently named “One of Ten Innovators to Watch in 2021” by Smithsonian Magazine, Barron Ryan tickles the keys with a debonair flair that turns everything you thought you knew about concert piano on its proverbial ear. Ryan’s repertoire covers jazz and ragtime classics and ventures into new territory with original compositions that are turning heads around the globe.
In 2019, Ryan noticed a shocking lack of funk-, pop-, and country-inspired classical music. Realizing he could fill that void, he composed the Magic City Sonata and a dance suite called Suite Thing. Those works are now published and recorded on his third solo record, First of Its Kind.
Ryan is following in his favorite composers’ footsteps by publishing his original works in the public domain. He offers his work as a gift to the world, and as a chance to collaborate with artists from around the globe.
