Amanda Rose Riley NJ/NYC metro Ever since deciding to pursue music in 2016, Amanda Rose Riley has been the epitome of DIY gusto. Along with releasing albums on her own, she has successfully executed tours overseas and at home, never hesitating to organize a house show, busk in a public place, or hit an open mic to fill in any gaps. Her persistence has enabled her to perform alongside the likes of Frank Turner and The Bouncing Souls. Influenced primarily by quirky indie folk music as well as punk rock, Amanda’s songwriting style is honest, unfiltered, and has a raw storytelling quality that is rare to see in artists today. Her latest, self-produced release, Millennials Are Going Gray, is a unique and personal take on what it means to be a “mid-range millennial” in today’s world. She will also be releasing more new music in the fall. Southeastern US fans will be able to catch Amanda on tour this November, while Europeans can expect to see her next May.
