The term “old soul” has been used more often than not to describe James Riley. His mom’s Elvis albums and movies like American Graffiti and Buddy Holly Story helped shape his musical tastes as a kid growing up in Louisville, KY in the 70’s that continue to this day.
The beginning was when, through the most famous show on the Greek Radio of Yannis Petridis, I heard for the first time Johnny Cash from the “Live recording at San Quentin Prison” and Creedence Clearwater Revival at the “Cosmos Factory”.
I live just north of London, UK and am a lifelong musician having picked up the guitar at 12 years old. I love all genre of music and have played in many different types of bands from blues to dance to jazz to folk.
