After high school, Riley followed in his fathers footsteps and became a locomotive engineer. As he traveled around, he invested all his free time in his music, pushing himself to not give up on his dream. He decided to plant his roots in Leesburg, Ga, and soon all his hard work and dedication started to pay off.
Riley now books over 200 plus shows a year, packing venues all over the southeast. He released his first single ‘Hollow Heart’ September 27th, 2019, after teasing a studio clip which reached nearly 30,000 views within a week. The song reached number one on Backyard Country 94.9 The Bull, along with his second released single ‘My Old Mans Old Man’ which debuted on December 27th, 2019.
With a blend of traditional and new country mixed with southern rock (along with many unexpected cover songs), Riley has always been a great entertainer and engages crowds of all ages with his full band and intimate acoustic shows.
