Ryan David Dwyer, better known by his music moniker Harpazio, is a composer, instrumentalist and digital music specialist. Hailing from Reno, NV, Harpazio began composing musical and lyrical songs at just 10 years old. By 14, he was learning how to play the piano at Music Man Music Studio in Wilsonville, OR. It was there that he was inspired to write his own music after being confronted with his constant rebellion of note reading. When he turned 19, he went through a paradigm shift and pursued a new direction in music. After moving to El Paso, TX, after graduating high school, his love for the piano was reignited, eventually leading him to seriously pursue the business of music. Today, Harpazio mainly produces new edge alternative rock with a unique strategy to success. "I've transformed my upbeat contemporary lyrical songs into instrumental pieces", he said. "I've created a unique album evolution strategy that turns my music inside-out genre-wise." This unique evolution strategy will focus on releasing a new album in four stages: an instrumental version, an A Cappella version, an orchestral version and a new edge alternative version. He is also dabbling in electronica and trance music for some of his singles. Harpazio cites his main musical influences as people he knows personally and Christian artists Michael W. Smith, Amy Grant and Petra, as well as classical pianist Claude Debussy, who pioneered the impressionist music movement on realism art. Harpazio refers to himself as an impressionist improvisation musician because he does his best to capture the lyrics of his songs in the music, both dynamically and by accurately invoking the imagination of the listener, with a real feel for what is conveyed. Making genuine attempts at creating unique sounds, Harpazio is breaking the mold with his music. In the future, He hopes to create an interdependent record label that offers artists a salary rather than paying upfront. He also plans to collaborate with musicians in order to bring unique music videos and song recordings to the forefront of the A Capella genre. As part of his album evolution he recently authored a companion book called, "You Are The Phoenix" which is available through .blurb .
