He really knows what he is doing. It’s inventive and mesmerizing. I left inspired. I haven’t heard anything like it in many years, and I don’t really expect to anytime." - Donald Gibson

Las Vegas-born Ryan Ahern began his musical studies at the age of 8 playing drums and orchestral percussion instruments. At 12 he started intense study of piano and it quickly dominated his focus. At 14 he got his first professional gig performing weekly at a local country club. Tenor and soprano saxophone‘s were added to his studies in high school and in college he returned to focus solely on piano, live performance, and arranging.
Today, Ryan has won the hearts of millions of fans performing his unique piano concerts around the world. His performance schedule has taken him to over 100 countries and his hit headliner show, PIANO! Las Vegas, began running at the Planet Hollywood Hotel in 2011.

Billboard Magazine named him “one of the top 10 instrumentalists in the country” and Keyboard Magazine called him a “piano super-talent”.
