RileyRiley is a Christian Contemporary sister-duet from Dallas, Tx.
We've inviting various guest musicians to participate in our church services this summer, one group being RileyRiley (Katie and Makenna Riley). They were simply wonderful! Not only did they play the spotlight songs we hired them for, they joined our church band to play the hymns for the service. We allowed them to choose the spotlight songs, and for the Anthem, we asked that it align with the scripture readings we had planned. Not finding a suitable song from their playlist, Katie wrote a song that was perfect. These are two very talented, professional women, who we'd love to have back for future events.
Response from RileyRiley:
Thank you so much for your kind review!! We really enjoyed spending Sunday with you all and getting to meet everyone. We look forward to joining y'all again sometime soon!
The ladies were very professional and crazy talented!! Loved having them and will certainly book them for future events!

My name is Katie Riley and I’m a Christian singer-songwriter from the Dallas, Texas area. I write about life, faith, and overcoming trial. Since 2013, I’ve been jamming at local venues and events with my sister, Makenna. With my guitar and ukulele mixed with her violin, we have a pretty cool twist on the classic acoustic sound.
In 2012, I received a Specialist Certificate in Music Theory through Berklee College of Music and am now a music teacher.
I released my first EP on October 28, 2014: (link hidden)
