When music icon Sir Elton John believes your good.....trust me, you're good. After being

B.B. King, T.I., Nelly, Sevendust, Third Day, Bruce Hornsby, Ann Wilson, Steve Walsh, TLC,
Arrested Development, Brandi Carlile, and Stevie Wonder), he took Riley's work to Elton John
who was impressed with her music and talent. It would be Elton's worldwide management
company, Rocket Music, that would sign Riley to a multi-year contract.
Matt has since produced three of her original songs and has released two, "Justice" and "Polish
The In" to The Georgia Music Channel, which has both songs in airplay rotation.

Simpson, John Fields (Jonas Brothers , Pink, Demi Lovato, Miley Cyrus) Matthew Wilder ( Kelly
Clarkson, Miley Cyrus, Christina Aguilera), Jimmy Harry (Madonna, Pink), and several other
songwriters, Riley Biederer at the age of 18 is emerging as the next Georgia music artist to
become a household name.
She's had numerous paid stage performances and been on the same stage as Sugarland,

Hall of Fame with the prestigous Bill Lowery Horizon Award. Previous recipients of this award include Justin Bieber and Dianna DeGarmo. She opened The 2011 Annual John Jarrard

“Riley’s been in the studio recently and we're happy to be the first radio station to air a couple
of Riley's fully produced singles. We look forward to additional music released by her. We're
always proud to see Georgia music artists blossom", says Ron Holland at The Georgia Music
Channel. The recently produced singles include Sean O’Rourke (drums), Rick “Slip” Hinkle
(bass & lead guitar), Riley (vocals & acoustical guitar) and Matt Still (keyboards).
Riley was signed by Sony/ATV on her 18th birthday. The deal includes over 200 songs from her catalog of original music. She told Ron Holland with The Georgia Music Channel, "it's so amazing and I just got a new car because of that, so it's super amazing. I've been waiting to buy a car for like two years, so I finally got to." Sony/ATV is the world's largest publisher of music making the deal a huge opportunity for her songs to be picked up by other artists to be recorded while she continues to write more songs and perform."
