Life of Riley Biography
Life of Riley’s roots are Brothers Cassidy & Brice Campbell. They had toured throughout the Midwest, Southwest and Northern California for years. In 2003, they traveled from their Houston, TX home to the famous Ardent Studios in Memphis, TN and began production on an album independently, with engineer Skidd Mills, (Gin Blossoms, Sister Hazel, and Skillet). As they worked together, the trio bonded; the three formed a production company, which found great success in producing a top 10 R&R rock hit “Rescue Me” (2003), from the band Inhabited. They followed that up with the Modern Day John single, “Autumn” (2004), which reached Top 15 in R&R. While producing those hits Brice & Cassidy were still yearning to share their own talent and purpose. In 2006, the brothers feel they now have put all of their best work together in the new release from their own band, Life of Riley.
The creative alchemy for Houston, TX based Life of Riley are brothers Cassidy Campbell (lead vocals) and Brice Campbell (guitar/backup vocals); long time friend, Barry Ochsner, (guitar/bass/backup vocals), and newest member Joel Killingsworth (drums).
‘Days Away From Life,’ which holds a variety of musical influences (Switchfoot/Chevelle/Lifehouse), is set to be released August 22nd, 2006.
