Discover RIOPY, the pianist and composer who has been topping the US Billboard charts for more than one hundred weeks and now embarks on his first major UK tour.

RIOPY first came to the piano as a means to overcome a traumatic childhood spent in an oppressive French cult. His fortunes changed when he was given an opportunity to study in the UK, and then gifted a Steinway piano by Coldplay’s Chris Martin, who recognised his talent and potential. RIOPY has since channelled his troubled past into his music, which serves as a source of solace, reflection and inspiration to millions around the world.

Having recorded three best-selling solo albums for Warner ( RIOPY, Tree of Light and Bliss) RIOPY embarks on his UK tour ahead of the release of his new album, THRIVE, on 14 April. With THRIVE, RIOPY invites us on a deeply personal journey from darkness to light, expanding his sound world in compositions for solo piano and, for the first time, strings. Taking inspiration from classical masterpieces, he creates emotionally powerful new works that further cement his reputation as one of the most captivating sonic storytellers today.

For the UK tour, RIOPY is supported by Adam Naas.
