ARTIST TO WATCH: Riley Hirshey


Artist Bio

 

Riley Hirshey is a singer/songwriter based in St. Louis, Missouri. His sound ranges from yearning singer/songwriter to peppy indie folk to mainstream pop. In his new single “One More Night”, Hirshey leans full force into a carefree brand of pop that starkly contrasts his more somber and heavy hearted debut EP “Make a Way.” After a period marked by big changes and stress, “One More Night” illustrates Hirshey’s starting a new chapter, leaning into each moment whole-heartedly, and recapturing the whimsy of simpler times.

Hirshey has quickly garnered attention with features on the popular IndieVibes and IndieMusic YouTube channels, as well as a glowing review of his single “The Rest of My Life” on the EarToTheGroundMusic blog.

“’One More Night’ feels like a reset for me,” Hirshey said. “As an artist, it’s a leap into a brand new genre. On a personal level, this song is the embodiment of reconnecting with myself. It’s about living in the moment and being carefree, which is something I feel like I’m finally starting to get back to.”
