      Bio

      Gyan Riley, hailed by Guitarra Magazine as "a genius" for both his performing and compositional abilities, is an equally strong presence in the worlds of the guitar and of contemporary music. While still studying as the first full-scholarship guitar student at the San Francisco Conservatory of Music, he received a recording contract for his debut CD of original works, Food for the Bearded, released in 2002 on New Albion Records. A First Prize winner in both the Portland International Guitar Festival Competition and the San Francisco Conservatory Guitar Concerto Competition, Mr. Riley performed in the American premiere of John Adams's El Nino with soprano Dawn Upshaw and the San Francisco Symphony. He has toured internationally and appears regularly with the Los Angeles-based Falla Guitar Trio, the Feinsmith Quartet, and his father, the composer/pianist Terry Riley. He has received commissions from the Carnegie Hall Corporation, the New York Guitar Festival, and the Elaine Kaufman Cultural Center.
