Riley Biederer is a singer/songwriter from Atlanta, with a musical gift that almost seems beyond her sixteen years. But the more you listen to her, the more you figure that she probably sounded just as amazing when she was 14 years old… or maybe even at 12. It’s the sound of natural talent; a young musical warrior sharpening her vocal sword before your very ears. It’s exciting stuff, to be sure. In addition to writing on her own, she has collaborated with a host of well-known songwriters in the pop, rock and country genres, and recorded with producer/engineer Matt Still (Elton John, Outkast). She was signed in December 2011 at Elton John’s direction to the international music management company Rocket Music (Elton John, James Blunt, Lily Allen, Ed Sheeran). Riley is currently writing and recording songs for her debut album.
If you’re in New York City tonight, I highly recommend that you catch her live performance (Friday, March 15th at Joe’s Pub). Riley is appearing at the 7:00pm show, along with New York City singer/songwriter Tora Fisher. You’ll be impressed not only by the power of Riley’s voice, but by the nuanced manner with which she uses her instrument. Unlike so many powerhouse vocalists, she doesn’t sing just to hear her own voice; she lets the voice be a conduit for her own alluring personality. With every note she sings, Riley touches a truth and evokes a passionate feeling. It’s the sure sign of a star performance. And hers is a story that’s just beginning.
