The Riders play original feel-good blues using 12 and 6 string acoustic guitars, National resonators, drums, washboard and stomp-box. Their songs are original, up-tempo blues, drawing from various regional styles of Delta and Country blues infused with pop, jazz and hillbilly flavours.
The Riders have developed a depth and maturity that only comes after many gigs and lots of hard work. Their soundscape is quite diverse with pop, country and jazz flavours adding to the blues foundation and their live performances showcase their skills, energy and enthusiasm – they sure do get the toes tapping! The Riders have recorded 3 CDs and their fourth is in the pipeline.
