Artist to Watch

Riley Clemmons

Riley Clemmons started writing music at age 13. She was discovered at a school pageant and is now signed to capital CMG. At age 19, she is continuing to grow in her music and artistry.

She began by playing songs around her home town and working on her sound. Her roots are in church music while exploring her passion in fresh and upbeat pop. Although young, Riley goes through life with a seasoned strength that shines in her music. Her career includes working with other artists and featuring in songs with groups like Social Club Misfits. She’s been able to work with top producers like Ben Glover who works with For King and Country, and writers like Emily Weisband (Hillary Scott) and Josh Kerr (Kelsea Ballerini, Danielle Bradbery).

Through her debut song “broken prayer”, Riley wishes to express how this process of up and coming artistry has grown and strengthened her. “Stepping into who I am as a young woman and a child of God and finding my own identity through that is really the core of all the songs I’ve written,” she says. “I’m excited for people to hear that, and I hope it will help them find comfort in their own journey and in their own personal growth. We all have ‘Broken Prayers,’ but my hope is that this song will help others find comfort in the midst of their own brokenness.” – Riley Clemmons
