RIOPY is a French-English performer who has fused minimalism, pop, jazz, and cinematic idioms into a distinctive crossover piano style. Born in 1983, RIOPY discovered his vocation as a pianist from an early age. Initially a self-taught composer, he later studied at Oxford Brookes, building a successful career both as a performer and in the realm of television and film, where his evocative solo piano pieces provided the backdrop to several popular movie trailers. After signing with Warner Classics, he issued his eponymous debut album in 2018, followed by “Tree of Light” album in 2O19, and “Bliss” album in 2O21. His music imbued with great virtuosity, singular rhythm, and total freedom of expression has been identified by a receptive and loyal following. The album Tree of light became number 1 in the Classical and New Age charts on January 15th, 2O22, seventy-one weeks after entering the charts. The Global tour kicked off in Paris on March 14th 2O22, then the United States this Christmas, finishing up in Japan and China in 2023.
