Riley G

Bio

Riley G is an artist from South Africa who owns the record label 'Riley G Music'. He is a session drummer, composer, producer, teacher, keyboardist and audio engineer who is based in Durban.

Riley started playing drums at the age of 3 and was mainly inspired by his father Pravin Giandhari who is also a professional drummer. At the age of 15, Riley started playing the drums at church and with a few gospel bands. Although he has considered degrees in other fields of study, he has always been drawn back to music and therefore enrolled to study Jazz at UKZN in 2013. Riley has performed with artists such as Hugh Masekela, Neil Gonsalves, Brian Simpson, Mike Del Ferro and Raphael Clarkson. He also teaches drums at Kearsney College and gives private lessons in drums, keyboard, and music theory. Noticeable performances include the Standard Bank Joy of Jazz Festival, the Oslo Jazz Festival, Cape Town International Jazz Festival, and Zakifo Music Festival. In 2018, he won 2 awards at the SAMRO Overseas Scholarship for Composers Competition.

His debut album titled ‘’Riley G – A Groove For The Nation’’ has been released in December 2019.
