RIKI KNOX is a singer, songwriter and entertainer who's unique sound and genuine lyrics have seen her blazing a new trail in the country music scene. She has a style that is authentically her own. With the term ‘Bro Country' at its peak, she offers a strong reminder that being ?raised country? is a way of life…without gender attachment. ?I grew up as one of the guys? she recalls. "Sure, I was happy to sit on the passenger side of the pick up, or on the back of the four wheeler, but that doesn't mean I wasn't doing my fair share of the driving? She's a girl who values and appreciates the ‘little things in life'. That grounded mindset has seen her go from playing church and charity events, to sharing the big stage with artists like Dallas Smith, Marc Jordan, and Justin Hines - to name a few. 2014 found Riki filling her travel book with trips between Toronto and Nashville, and into Western Canada to lay the groundwork for her forthcoming album. ?I wanted to write songs that really spoke to who I am as both an artist and a person? she explains. Staying true to that statement, she spent time writing with some very notable songwriters, including Willie Mack (Sara Evans, Collin Raye, The Oakridge Boys, Mark Wills), Jason McCoy (The Road Hammers), Duane Steele, Jake Mathews, Patricia Conroy, and Troy Kokol among others. When satisfied that she had the right songs in hand, she headed back to Nashville armed with the goal of creating great new music that her fans would appreciate and relate to. With Willie Mack at the producers helm, the infectious hooks and lyrics, along with Riki's energy and unique style, manage to seamlessly blend classic country, country rock, and a new age sound without missing a beat. Riki's new single is called Six Feet Under.
