"Relaxed but catchy tracks infused with creative flair are a treasured find. With a foundation of sugar, spice and everything nice, Riley Wells delivers on an enjoyable pop track."
"Riley Wells is coming at us with hit after hit. Endless’ is buoyant with a pretty pink bubblegum wrapping. The synth-laden song harmonically melds both the pop-bop melody with Wells’ super-sweet vocals."
"The dreamy lyrics and the vocals along with the synth-like backing music really fits the genre of Pop today. The song really brings out Riley Wells’ femme-lavender pop energy and engulfs you in its soothing but fun atmosphere...I wouldn’t be surprised to find Endless on a dopamine-pop playlist alongside the likes of Alessia Cara and Katy Perry. "
"Before I had even finished listening to ‘Every Language’ for the first time, I could already feel myself loving this song in a way I hadn’t loved romantic songs in years. Riley Wells’ ability to enamor a person from the very first listen is unforseen yet exhilarating.
As an artist that embraces her romantic side, her sensuality and her weaknesses just as much as she values her strengths, Riley Wells is a must listen for anyone with a desire to feel empowered, or for people who enjoy feeling as though they had a deep, honest conversation with the artist after listening to their music."
Quand as-tu réalisé que tu ferais de la musique professionnellement?
Quand j’avais six ans, je chantais sous la douche à pleins poumons, et après chaque représentation je disais: «Merci Madison Square Garden!» Être interprète, pour moi, est quelque chose d’inné, c’est dans mon âme et dans mon cœur. Quand tu es enfant, tu sais ce que tu veux être quand tu seras grand, et cela vient toujours de ce lieu de ce qui t’apporte une joie authentique. Pour moi, chanter était ma joie et je savais que c’était le chemin que j’étais destiné à suivre.
Appreciate you sharing that. What else should we know about what you do?
"Being a singer and songwriter and being able to share my creative work is such an amazing feeling because it’s like getting to share my heart with people who want to listen. It was a big leap for me to release my first EP because I was like, woah, I’m basically letting people read my musical diary! But then the coolest thing is the way our vulnerability as artists creates this community with our audience, the way people can hear you and say, this is speaking to exactly how I feel. I love that..."
You just released a brand new single, “Every Language”. What can you tell me about it?
“Every Language” is my heart song...it’s a personal expression of the magic that is falling in love. When I sat down to write that story, I was feeling such wonderful emotions- that sense of being on a high and encapsulated by this elation. It’s a song that describes the kind of love that goes beyond our words- a language between our souls, our energy, even our body language. What naturally bloomed from that moment was this dreamy and ethereal feel-good wonderland of honest lyrics and soulful pop melody. "
" 'Love is a conversation that goes beyond our words', says Riley, and her song speaks to us about this feeling through the perfect mix of pop and R&B, which frame the singer’s singing skills. Riley is really a pop star, who captures you with her pop and R&B sounds with some soul touches, where her vocal ability affects and involves and is also able to connect with her listeners and capture new fans."
"Riley's music is more than just pop ear candy, it gathers influences from contemporary R&B and Soul music and you can definitely hear this in all of her songs, especially in her very melodic vocal solos."
"Riley Wells is all geared up to share her intuition and knowledge in the form of spunky yet luxe pop collections...[she] continues her glamour-pop saga with her recent single release..."That Kinda Love" will effortlessly glide across your musical taste buds, the song ends quickly just under the 3-minute mark. Good thing there's a replay button."
What inspires your music?
"I find most of my inspiration comes from my life experiences; my connection with others, and how romance and feelings meet human sensuality. I really immerse myself in love and relationships, even my relationship with the universe- so I find myself naturally exploring how I experience every corner and crevice of life. "
"The song features powerful melodies, sublime vocals, unique grooves, catchy sounds, and solid hooks...Riley continues to deliver good music. Her music connects with people. That Kinda Love deserves 5 stars."
Growing up, Riley sang in talent shows and musicals, and was brought up listening to her mom’s favorite records- learning to love soul and motown artists like Earth Wind & Fire and Marvin Gaye. From these artists she developed an appreciation for singing with real emotion and heart, while being unapologetically honest in lyric.
"With its smooth R&B beats and ticking percussion, Riley’s elevated voice is pitch perfect and delivers the female pop star persona...Riley’s voice is infectious and captivating and the tracks accompanying vocalizing harmonies are saintly. Introduce yourself today to this upcoming star."
