Riley Etheridge Jr.
Riley Etheridge Jr. is a New York City based singer/songwriter with deep roots in Americana music. After growing up in a musical family in Columbia, S.C., he spent 20 years performing and recording in the musical gumbo of South Louisiana, and after a decade long hiatus his move to New York has inspired a collection of new original material entitled "Things I Used to Know". The album, which will be released in January of 2010, represents a reunion of all- star South Louisiana musicians and friends who have recorded together for over 25 years.
Recorded in New Orleans in July of 2009, the rhythm section included Baton Rouge bassist David Ellis, Guitarist Shane Theriot (Neville Brothers/Boz Scaggs) drummer Doug Belote (Jerry Douglas/Sonny Landreth) and New Orleans jazz pianist and composer Larry Sieberth. The basic tracks then traveled to Nashville TN where Louisiana native and producer Wendell Tilley added guitars and enlisted Americana/country rock legends such as Dan Dugmore (James Taylor/Linda Ronstadt) and Mickey Rapheal (Willie Nelson) to add their distinctive contributions. The resulting album has been described by one writer as an "elegiac, contemplative collection of sad, funny, and ultimately redemptive alternative country".
