Hailed as a “lovely violist” (The WholeNote), Ryan Davis is swiftly emerging as a singular creative voice. A sought-after artist in solo, chamber music, and orchestral performances, he finds himself seamlessly blending in between creative spaces. Ryan was named one of “30 Hot Canadian Classical Musicians Under 30” by CBC Music in 2021. An innovative composer-performer under the moniker Radia, he combines inspiration of classical, folk, electronic, and hip-hop music with a loop pedal. His compositions have been featured in diverse spaces and communities, including in Toronto’s Koerner Hall, The Violin Channel, in Los Angeles’s Skid Row, and on ABC Channel 7 News LA. Ryan holds music degrees from McGill University (graduating with “Outstanding Achievement in Viola”), Yale University, The Colburn School, and was chosen as the first ever violist in the Rebanks Family Fellowship & International Performance Residency Program in Toronto.
