Event Details

Riley Catherall full band show @ Shotkickers w/ special guest Tessa Fleur

Riley Catherall is a Melbourne-based singer-songwriter whose patient lyricism has not gone unnoticed. Riley has built a credible status as one of Australia's most promising songwriters through his poetic sincerity and alluring live shows. The last 18 months saw Riley release his debut album "When I Go", tour the UK and Australia to promote it, and score some great support spots for The Whitlams, Ella Hooper and Taxiride.

“When I Go”  is an amalgamation of songs about leaving, losing love, and finding somewhere to settle down. National praise came in spades for singles “Mother Please”, “Vacant Lot” and “Leave Me Out To Dry” – all receiving extensive streams, national airplay and additions into ABC National's high rotation. Catherall’s writing has also attracted international attention with radio play across Europe and the UK – “A F***ing Virtuoso” Chris Jagger delicately put it after he appeared at the Maverick Americana Festival in Suffolk, UK where he was listed as a festival favourite alongside Lachlan Bryan and The Wildes and Hannah Aldridge and Chance McCoy (Old Crow medicine Show).  He returned to the festival in 2022 where he presented the longing crowd with the songs off the new record and was again listed as the festival favourite.

Bark At The Moon was the first offering from the upcoming second record and a single release tour in Australia in late 2022 and then in the UK in early 2023 provided those who attended an insight into the creative workings of an arresting storyteller in the sophomore stage of his career.

One of the standout features of Melbourne-based singer-songwriterRileyCatherall’s debut album is that it is the sound of an artist in consummate control of his craft. - Chris Familton, Post To Wire

His songs are beautifully constructed and immaculately delivered. The find of the festival. – Three Chords and The Truth UK
