More about Riley Biederer (Saturday, June 9, 4:15 p.m. and Sunday, June 10, 10:30 a.m.)
21 year old singer/songwriter Riley Biederer’s career has covered an impressive amount of ground for an artist her age; performing solo or with her band in Atlanta, Nashville, Los Angeles, Chicago, New York, France, etc., and logging over 350 paid performances before the age of 20. She auditioned for Season 9 of the hit television show "The Voice" and as a member of Pharrell Williams’ and Gwen Stefani’s teams, Riley used powerful performances to become the first “one chair turn/twice stolen” artist to ever make the Voice Live Playoffs.
In 2016 she released her first EP "To Me and You" and was the opening act for Nick Carter's "All American Tour." In November 2017, Riley won YouTube's "best.cover.ever." title and was hand picked by Katy Perry for her amazing rendition of "Chained to the Rhythm." As the winner, Riley would perform the title track from Katy Perry's new album "Witness" alongside Katy Perry herself. The video of their duet has since gone viral. Riley now resides in Los Angeles working full time on her music career, remaining a popular draw for her enthusiastic fan base, appearing and touring on a national level.
