"It is a rare thing to be able to sit a hipster next to a hippie and have them enjoy the same kind of music, but Riding Shotgun seems to do be doing just this." - Daniel Murphy, Northeast In-Tune Magazine May 2006

Biography

Based in Boston, Riding Shotgun's live set is an instrumental mix of atmospheric rock, breakbeat and groove. RS is currently booking dates for their spring/summer 2007 tour to promote their sophmore album on Random Chance Records.

"NIGHTfalls", the band's debut album, received high praise from The Noise (Boston), 20th Century Guitar Magazine (NYC) and others. (NOTE: See press section for full reviews)

To draw style comparisons, the Boston-based instrumental trio's sound has been likened as "Medeski, Martin & Wood meets Radiohead."

In their short yet burgeoning career, Riding Shotgun has released "leave by eleven..." in 2003 (debut 4-song EP), headlined venues such as "The Middle East" (Cambridge) and "The Pontiac" (Philadelphia), and has opened for national acts like Metric, Mike Doughty, Jacob Fred Jazz Odyssey, Drums & Tuba and the Bon Savants.
