Riley Unveils New Single "Innocence"
LA-based singer/songwriter Riley has just unveiled her brand new single Innocence. Really enjoying her powerful vocals and the song is so well textured that you'll have your head bobbing as soon as it starts. This is a powerful pop track, with very personal lyrics and you can stream it below!

Speaking on the track, Riley states
When I was younger, I suffered abuse by the hands of an older man. Being able to sing out my confusion and frustration made me confront some upsetting truths about my past. Innocence is about seeing these issues face-to-face and and way to heal from them.
Riley was born and raised on the warm coast of Southern California. In the spring of 2005, that sunshine was cast out by a dark grey cloud that would eventually haunt her for her days to come. Riley lost her close friend, and her mother to suicide. With no way of escaping the reality of her world, she turned to writing poetry and her piano. Not classically trained, she would sit in her room teaching herself how to write songs. For the next years of her life she would be comforted by the sounds of soul, jazz, and blues. Influenced by artists like Amy Winehouse, Bill Withers, Janis Joplin, Helene Smith, Al Green & Marvin Gaye; she found her way into writing and poring her heart and soul into her songs.
