After several experiences with other bands and individual efforts, Jon Irizarry, Randy Sabo, and Brian Cornish came together for open studio sessions in early 2011. They quickly found a rhythm and gelled musically; however, lacking a name and a little glockenspiel (don’t we all?) they added Pat Maloney and Rick Rogers to the group. The result was a more modern sound and a fuller presentation….and a name: Rigbi.
The New Jersey natives’ 2014 record, Visionary, was voted MAGNET Magazine’s February #1 Most Anticipated Release and has garnered praise from tastemakers including Daytrotter, Ear to The Ground, Americana UK, and IndieLondon among others. They have even received accolades from indie heavy-hitters, The Head and The Heart and Seattle record label Sub Pop, for their cover video of “Let’s Be Still”. In August of 2017, the band released their latest album "Ways" which featuring "As The World Unwinds" with guest artist Nataly Dawn.
