Riley L.

At 18, I headed off to study music business in college with the intention of becoming a recording artist. That didn't happen, but it did give me greater insight into the music industry. As a filmmaker and amateur singer-songwriter, I use a lot of recording equipment in a variety of settings and scenarios. I play guitar very badly, ukulele worse, and am an admirer (occasional purchaser) of unusual instruments. A million years ago, I was a runner-up in a songwriting contest. Favorite artists: The Corrs, Kasey Chambers, Mavis Staples, David Ford, Beth Hart, Amanda Marshall, Michael Franti & Spearhead, Kathy Mattea, Linda Eder
