Atlanta born Riley Biederer’s sound is multi-dimensional, although difficult to define. However, if pressed to be categorized, Riley’s music can be described as soul-infused pop.
At Age 15, Grammy-winning producer Matt Still (Outkast, Elton John, BB King, Joss Stone, Lady Gaga, Patti LaBelle, Jewel) discovered her singing and songwriting talent on YouTube and took her to Elton John who immediately signed her to his international music management company Rocket Music (Elton John, Ed Sheeran). Shortly after, Governor Nathan Deal presented her with the prestigious Georgia Music Hall of Fame’s “Bill Lowery Horizons Award” when she was 16. Her work with dozens of established writers and producers in Los Angeles, New York, Nashville, Atlanta, Canada and France led to her signing a publishing agreement at 18 with the world’s largest publishing company, Sony/ATV. Riley and Rocket Music parted ways in May of 2015 when Rocket Music closed their North American operations. Striking out on her own after leaving Rocket Music, Riley decided to audition for Season 9 of the hit television show The Voice. As a member of Pharrell Williams’ and Gwen Stefani’s teams, Riley used powerful performances to become the first one chair turn, twice stolen artist to ever make the Voice Live Playoffs. Recently relocated to Los Angeles, she continues to pursue a career as a singer/songwriter, collaborating with other artists and creators. <br>
