Wielding banjo, acoustic and electric guitars, harmonica, djembe, stand-up snare and a porch board, these four singer-songwriters speak out about personal, social and political realities. Their songs are infused with women’s lived experience.

Vocally driven with an electrified edge, Elizabeth Riley Band has captivated audiences at an eclectic range of venues.
