CLASSIC MEETS COOL
Barron Ryan's love for music has always been divided. The son of two musicians, he grew up in a house filled with sounds ranging from Mozart to Michael Jackson. He's not content drawing one just on influence. He combines them all into a musical adventure that's vintage yet fresh, historical yet hip, classic yet cool.
After beginning piano lessons at age four, Barron seemed destined for a career in music. He excelled in performing throughout middle and high school, then continued as a piano performance major at the University of Oklahoma.
However, Barron was then rejected from many music conservatories. Disheartened, he briefly gave up on the piano in pursuit of a hip-hop career; but due to a piano competition that sent its winner to perform in Israel, that project was graciously short-lived.
Thanks to that concert tour, Barron found his voice. He discovered the joy of jazz and ragtime-inspired concert music. Rest assured that in all Barron Ryan's music, Classic Meets Cool..
