Mike Riley is a songwriter fond of big dogs and bigger guitars. He hasn’t let being born with a club foot in a small - shitty one store town or a divorce stop him from pursuing his passion for music.
Early on, Riley picked up the guitar when all his friends were skateboarding. Music was his way into the crowd and like most teenage boys, girls were the motivator. Though he didn’t know it at the time, Riley was a natural songwriter and soon dropped the Dashboard Confessional covers and started writing and recording in his high school bedroom.
