Cian Boylan

Cian Boylan is an Irish musician, working across many musical genres including jazz, rock & pop, and film & theatre, and collaborating with many established international artists.

He was born in Dublin, and began studying piano at the tender age of 6. While studying classical music, he was also exposed to all kinds of music by his parents, in particular jazz, rock and pop music. He got his first professional job at the age of 14 and soon became established on the Irish musical scene.

After graduating Trinity College Dublin, he began a business career, establishing himself as a successful Management Consultant while in parallel building up his reputation on the music scene. The trials of juggling two successful careers meant one had to go. Thankfully, his music career took precedence!
