I am a singer-songwriter based in southern England. Since the beginning of my career only a couple of years ago I’ve been lucky enough to perform in major slots at festivals such as Carfest South, The Vintage Nostalgia Festival, Hampshire’s Oktoberfest, and many more raising over £10,000 and counting for multiple charities along the way! I have also had the pleasure of releasing my first EP “12 am” live on BBC Radio Berkshire. The EP contains 5 of my best original songs showing my complete diversity and abilities in music. Music is my passion, so when choosing my repertoire and writing my own music, it has to be perfect! I mainly find myself following the styles of funk, Blues, Soul and many more, creating a new and exciting sound of my own aspiring to musicians such as John Mayer, Stevie Wonder, Ed Sheeran and many more. Riley K, the artist guaranteed to get you singing! With a whole new look and fresh unheard material, this is a performance you must not miss!
