Mary Lydia Ryan

Mary Lydia Ryan, vocalist, pianist, composer is living out her dream of bringing all she loves most to the forefront of her musical endeavors.

Having resurfaced musically in 2010 following a decade - plus hiatus, Ryan has been active composing, recording, and performing with a different focus than in her previous musical incarnation: to simply enjoy creating and sharing what’s in her heart.

Much of Ryan’s success since 2010 has occurred accidentally (not accidentally?) Momentum began with her ’Sunshine & Second Chances’ mostly vocal album with highlights of her solo piano work that lead to her full length solo piano album, ‘Moving in Grace.’ This recording landed in the hands of Whisperings Solo Piano Radio and was nominated for “Album of the Year” with Whisperings.

What has followed is a steady stream of performances, additional compositions and recordings (including her new release of solo piano compositions ‘Little Red Boat',) the invitation to act as “Musical Host” with all her original music providing pre and postlude and interstitials between each segment at TEDx Seattle in 2017, then to be invited back for a second year at TEDx Seattle 2018 under the same title.

Added to Mary’s musical ambitions is her new creative endeavor, Spa Opera®. Ryan has comprised elements of quiet, meditative, spa essences and added them to live musical productions while tapping into a magical array of Seattle artisans to share the stage with. Ryan believes that magic and wonder reside in every human and strives to rejuvenate these aspects in all who attend each of her Spa Opera® experiences.
