"One of those few unheard gems!"

"Riley's music is one of those few unheard gems in the music industry. Her voice stands out brilliantly, and the music is unique, which is great to hear, especially in an industry that is plagued by copy-cats. We look forward to watching and listening to her future success in the business!" - Party 934 Radio


"Music Corner with Riley Weston"

"Riley Weston is a phenomenal musician. Her music has a great sound to it. The songs she has produced gives the listener a personal feel to it as she doesn't address anyone in particular, but addresses, "You," making it feel like she is singing directly to the person who is listening to her music."
- Valley Patriot

Bio

Riley is no stranger to the entertainment industry!

With her acting roles, movie scripts and an award-winning book, Riley is most excited about finally sharing her music. Below Riley talks about her first single, IF I SAID HOWDY TO YOU, as well as other upcoming songs and projects.

"The title SURRENDER LAUGHING came to me one night when I finally realized, much to my dismay, that I know nothing. What a tremendously freeing and also funny moment! And I couldn't help but laugh. It's like we all, well...I'll only speak for myself... I have spent most of my life trying to control everything. Anything. Not just my life. Everyone else's too. For some crazy reason, we all think...ok, I think...that I somehow know better than the Power that created the Universe?! Not so much. So when I finally and literally threw my hands up in the air and surrendered, I had to laugh at the absurdity of it all. Me thinking I knew anything...The song SURRENDER LAUGHING says basically there is always a plan, and there is always going to be a better day. BUT, we just have to trust God, or whatever higher Power you believe in. You have to know what you need is coming. You have to surrender, so you might as well do it laughing!

We all have that guy {or girl} who, for some reason, makes you wonder what you ever saw in them when they bring up the "I like you but I don't want anything serious" conversation. NOTHING SERIOUS is dedicated to all those who have said "Hey, I kinda like you" to someone ... only to change your mind about a week later.

SHOULDA BEEN YOU is a ballad that focuses on The One that we all had in our lives. Most likely, they've moved on! This song is from the side that has not.

I'M MORE TRASH THAN WHITE popped into my head as I was getting ready to go to bed. I was throwing on an old wife beater which, honestly, has no purpose being worn anymore. To say it's threadbare is a compliment. Earlier that day I noticed both of my fav jeans were sporting holes in the patches covering up the first holes. I'll take a campfire and hanging out over any fancy party. I drive a truck and I've been known to throw out a few colorful words. :o) That said, I'M MORE TRASH THAN WHITE is simply a fun song.

IF I SAID HOWDY TO YOU is the first single and also the first song I've ever written. The song is about a girl and a guy who have yet to meet... That's all I'll say for now!
