Riorden is the project of psychedelic-tinged singer-songwriter, Alexandra Riorden Dwight. An old Irish surname, Riorden means “royal poet” and lends an accurate description to her emphasis on metaphor and wordy, thought-provoking lyricsm.
Born and raised in California, Riorden draws inspiration from the riffs and grit of 60s classic rock, raw vocal stylings of Woodstock-era folk, and unfiltered, stream-of-conciousness poetry of the beatniks.
Riorden recently released her debut 5-song EP, titled Weirdflower, in March, 2019 and is currently living in Santa Barbara, while working on producing her first full record.
The Annie Oakley (Oklahoma City, OK)
THE ANNIE OAKLEY is a harmony based, Americana folk band. The twin duo GRACE & SOPHIA BABB who hail from Oklahoma City, delivers sparkling harmony vocals, gorgeous melodies, and brilliant lyrics. “Their combination of entertaining storytelling and dreamy melodies have led to Rising Star and Oklahoma’s Choice: Best Band awards in 2016 and a coveted official showcase at Folk Alliance International 2017,” according to press materials.
An independent musician from Santa Barbara, CA, JAMEY GESTON is a singer-songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, and visual artist. The renowned area creator is one of our region’s most promising young performers. With her dark twist of earnest lyrics, haunting melodies and harmonies; Jamey represents a new generation of songwriters. Unlike many of today’s most interesting recording artists, her music can’t be easily categorized, she delivers her own blend of acoustic & electric sounds that create a dreamy, vintage feel with smart nods of current folk-pop that can easily throw you back to the sixties.
EMILY WRYN is a Santa Barbara County native who has been writing and performing since the tender age of 13. Her early demos were played on Nic Harcourt’s Morning Becomes Eclectic, and in 2018 Emily’s song “Quiet” was selected by Marissa Lorusso of NPR’s Tiny Desk Contest as one of her early favorites. She wrote: “Emily Wryn sings with a poignant weariness that evokes Sharon Van Etten or Angel Olsen. Her [song] “Quiet,” recognizes the power old wounds can hold over us, and the bravery it takes to move past them.”
