“Broke, broken hearted or betrayed? Don’t fret there’s a blues song just for you from Johnny Riley about every hardship in life.”
…as one reviewer put it, “Crossroads Of My Life lets us hear how a blues album is supposed to sound like.”
Here`s what others are saying about Johnny Riley!
“THE ALBUM IS ONE OF THE FINEST I HAVE EVER HEARD, THE MUSIC IS GREAT AND JOHNNY’S VOICE IS AS GOOD AS THE SUPER STARS”! – PHIL THICKPENNY
“VERY ENTERTAINING, A TRUE AND AUTHENTIC COUNTRY BLUES ARTIST, AND A STUDENT OF AMERICANA” – CAMILLE ELLINGTON
“BLUES/ROCKIN COUNTRY, NO MATTER WHAT BOX U PUT IT IN, JOHNNY RILEY WILL KICK IT OPEN AND ROCK YOU” – SEAN
“Johnny Riley is a Southern US jukebox, melding roots music as well as capable of playing single genre country, blues, gospel, or bluegrass. With his Father from Texas, and his Mother, Clarksdale born and bred, his roots are deep. Johnny is a guitarist/singer and neither talent is playing catch up. Johnny Riley’s music is well written, strident and he isn’t pussy footing. The deal is real with this Texan straight shooter”.
Johnny Riley melds country, blues, and Southern rock into a perfect mix of rootsy Americana music. The relative simplicity of his melodies and rhythm makes this album a must have for any cross-country road trip down Route 66 or staying in with your favorite bottle of whiskey.
