LA-native and industry veteran RILEY drops off an addictive new alt-pop offering with his latest project LOSS ANGELES: OVERDOSE, a deluxe version of his 2020 album LOSS ANGELES. With three new tracks, the deluxe record boasts features from blackbear, Lil Aaron, Wes Period, and KC.
“OVERDOSE is the story of my demise in a city that gave me everything but was just as quick to take it all back. It tells my story of love, lust, heartache, addiction and coming to terms with where my life was heading. We added three new songs and they are about who I am, what I’m searching for and expecting others to see, and how I’m feeling but being ok with where I am and who I am." - RILEY
With RILEY, what you see isn’t always what you get. He’s the real part of Los Angeles that people don’t talk about enough… until now. After a decade of tour managing for several high level artists, RILEY was initially discovered by blackbear, who was an early champion and an instrumental factor in his decision to seriously pursue his own music career.
Not unlike his mentor, although RILEY’s scene might be all tattoos, cars, and graffiti… he also has a polished and unadulterated take on what pop should be. While his rugged appearance might be what makes you stop and stare, his voice is really what hooks you in.
RILEY released his first song in 2018 and hasn’t looked back since. Pulling from memories of pain, addiction, heartbreak, and loss to craft his sound, RILEY has quietly put together a catalog of tracks that allow listeners to experience life through his eyes – and he has developed a devoted cult following because of it. On top of playing main stage at the final Vans Warped Tour and completing a successful US headlining run, he has also toured as direct support for the likes of blackbear, Tyler Carter, Yung Pinch, and Chase Atlantic. To date, RILEY boasts nearly 8m career streams and shows no signs of slowing down.
