Tonight’s Feature Band:
Rio Wiley is a solo indie pop project developed by Rio Wiley Stinger from Phoenix, AZ. Although the project is newly developed as of January 2016, Stinger has been performing and playing in Arizona since 2012 as the vocalist for local rock band “I Remember Burning”, playing countless shows over the 4 years. Carrying fans from his previous projects, Rio Wiley has become Stinger’s primary musical outlet. The project draws influences from various genres of music, including pop, rock, and acoustic. Lyrically, Rio tells personal experiences crafted in poetry to describe the deepest emotions experienced through our relations with one another.
Rio Wiley began through the release of music video/single “Tired & Done (feat. Anthony Pierre III of DAISY)”. Following its release, Rio Wiley then developed a new fan base and generated immediate interest. After 6 months of writing and recording, Stinger followed up “Tired & Done” with the announcement of his debut EP “young ghost”, a concept album about losing all sense of your identity, following the loss of someone you love. Check out their song “The Love We Used To Share” off the album below:
