Our next First Friday guest at The Campbell Lounge will be local musician Christopher Riley.
Originally from Anaheim, Calif., Riley has been playing instruments since he was 4 years old and wrote his first original song, called “Bee and Me,” when he was 8.
He comes from an Irish family of musicians and always enjoyed hearing his father and his father’s brothers play when he was growing up. He has played in many different bands throughout the years and has performed in many clubs throughout the United States.
His influences range from Bowie to the Beatles to Buckley. He plays multiple instruments and loves the challenge of the studio and writing new material. He has written for many artists in every field, from rock to country and rap to Christian, but he prefers the rock genre.
We’re especially proud of Chris around here, as he is married to our event manager, Diane. You can hear him perform from 6 to 8 p.m. Friday, April 5, at The Campbell Lounge. Come hang out with us, unwind with a drink, and listen to some great music! We look forward to seeing you.
