Without a record deal, his debut album 'Hello Earth' was released for free back in 2012, sprinkled with a star-studded cast of producers (Harmony Samuels, Dready, Maleek Berry, James Ighile) and several notable features from upcoming talent. The Superman-themed project achieved over 150,000 downloads online, outside of all streaming services, thanks to devoted fans showing sincere support since Riley’s boyband days. Some years later, after seven conceptual bodies of work, and on the heels of hitting a million plays on Soundcloud, Riley was flown to South Korea and awarded with a World Pop Music Award for "R&B Pioneer". Today, Riley has many a notch on his belt; writing, arranging, mixing, engineering and executive producing his own projects and designing all his artwork, website and promotional material. Not to mention directing and editing his music videos. All the above has laid the foundation for the official releases the new, bold and sexually expressive all-round entertainer has in store for his fans in 2019.
