As a kid, Riley Pearce accidentally learnt guitar left handed while mirroring his idols on TV. From humble beginnings busking at farmers markets and playing open mic nights in Perth, alt-folk artist Riley Pearce is now selling out shows across Australia, winning awards and touring internationally.
Breakout single ‘Brave’ has clocked up over 15 million plays on Spotify alone, making it clear that his reflective songwriting and chilled-out coastal vibes resonates with more than just folk music lovers.
Riley has supported artists such as LifeHouse, Lord Huron, Tash Sultana, Lucy Rose, and Kim Churchill. He won the WA Music Folk Song of the Year Award in 2017, had his music featured on US TV shows Shameless and Shadowhunters, has signed to Free Trade Agency in London and just finished a 6-month tour of the UK/EU.
