About


David

James

Riley

Artist, musician, man of many trades

 

England. Approximately 170 miles north of the nation's capital lies the city of Sheffield, nestled within seven hills and divided by 5 rivers. Here lies the hometown of singer-songwriter and artist David James Riley.

I started gigging in 2013 playing mostly solo acoustic material, and recorded a unique cover of Kate Bush's 'Running Up That Hill' as a winner of Yellow Arch Studio's Hidden Talent Showcase for Cavendish Cancer Care (available on iTunes). My debut EP includes 5 distinct songs encompassing a wide range of styles and influences, from rock ('A Chance To Strike', 'Know I do') through west-coast folk ('These Four Walls'), Americana ('Tom Dooley') and stripped back acoustic ('Blood On The Blade').

Before my musical ambition became part of reality, I was already working as a visual artist and designer, with a varied portfolio from realism to conceptual. Check out my portfolio - hopefully you'll think it's pretty cool!
