I think it's so special you have landed on my page and are sharing a few moments with me. I'm SJ Riley, Singer-Songwriter, Actress and Model from Peterborough, Ontario, Canada! I love travelling, playing music, having fun and meeting people along the way! Take a look around, let's share a few stories together.
Award-winning multi-instrumentalist SJ Riley energizes the crowd through compelling songs, fun stories and her positive vibe. SJ has an impressive vocal range and has no fear performing for thousands of people. She has been spending her time recently in the studio crafting her debut EP 'Love is Bad'.
In 2021, SJ's first year hitting the stage, she had already played impressive shows such as opening for Canadian country musician Chad Brownlee in front of thousands in Peterborough, Ontario. In the Summer of 2022 she had her first cross-country performance in Duncan British Columbia at the 39 Days of July Festival, where she was invited back to play in Fall of 2022. SJ is set to play the 39 Days of July Festival again in the Summer of 2023.
SJ's debut single, ‘Whoever This Was Written To’, gained traction on commercial radio in Quebec and Ontario. The song has a slight bluesy vibe (think early Serena Ryder) and her vocal range will blow you away. in May of 2023 ‘Whoever This Was Written To’ won Single of The Year at the New Music Awards in Peterborough, ON hosted by Pet Rock Radio. Her upcoming single ‘In the Moonlight’ is set to release in the fall of 2023.
Other artists SJ has been compared to are Janis Joplin, Joss Stone, and Brittany Howard of Alabama Shakes.
SJ is a multi-dimensional artist who is also half of the duo PHYNE, an electronic music project where SJ explores another side of her artistry. PHYNE is set to release their second single HELP in the Fall of 2023. They recently finished shooting the music video for HELP with Paradigm Pictures.
Another element of song that SJ explores is writing soundtracks for movies and short films. She has recently finished a soundtrack for a set of educational films through the Future Leaders of the World project for On The Move Productions, a production company based out of Miami, FL. SJ's upcoming single In the Moonlight has landed a feature spot in the upcoming comedy film F'd and is currently recording a song for the movie Relevant.
Like most creative people, SJ's talents go beyond music. She also is an actress, and has appeared in commercials, short films and feature length movies. Comedy is her forte and she loves improv. SJ is also a model, and has recently been collaborating with different photographers to build her portfolio that can be found on her website.
