Shaun and Wayne recently returned from Memphis Tennessee where they performed 3 shows on Beale Street at King’s Palace and The Kooky Canucks.
Combined, RILEY & RILEY have produced four independent CDs filled with original Blues music. Drawing inspiration from North Mississippi hills country blues music, RILEY & RILEY write original songs with a strong emphasis on a steady, driving rhythm and percussion. Their performances display the prominent use of slide guitar, tunes built from guitar riffs, sparse chord changes, unconventional song structures and an emphasis on the “groove”.
RILEY & RILEY have developed their own unique, emotionally explosive, sound experience. There is a grittiness to their blues that is refreshing. It is raw and different.
Catch them on The Cove Patio after the last act on The Cove Stage at MUSICwestport Festival on Aug.17!
