Ryan Marvel is a native of Colorado. He began to tinker on the piano at a young age, watching his brother and grandmother play and recreate what he was hearing. Once in lessons, he frustrated his early teachers as reading music seemed like a burden to him. Eventually, he would come to know a teacher who understood individual creativity and taught him the value of reading to enhance arranging and composition. Ryan has released four studio albums: "Left Hand, Right Hand" (2005 - Classical, jazz, arrangements), "Possibilities" (2010 - All original compositions), "Winter" (2013 - Seasonal album) and most recently "Reflecting Forward" (2017 - All original compositions) The most recent three albums have all been nominated for Album of the Year honors by SoloPiano.com and Whisperings Solo Piano Radio, respectively.
