Back in the Studio with Fire & Brimstone

We are back at it! 


Coronavirus won't stop us! Thankfully we have our own studio and resources available, because we are in overdrive finishing up my next single "Fire & Brimstone." We are in the home stretch and so close to being done, you can smell the fire and taste the brimstone! 


Final mixing is happening right now, and I can't wait to share it with you all. As soon as it drops, you'll be the first to know! ;-)

Happy Thanksgiving!

I love this time of year! The cooler temps that are heading into the sparkling white snows of winter. Time to reflect upon what we are grateful for. Time spent with one another. The people, moments and experiences - good and bad that are woven together to create our lives - for all of it, I am grateful. I am thankful for the long list of blessings life has given me. The opportunity to be here with you is certainly on that list! Where ever you may be as you read this, no matter how many people you may or may not have around you at this moment - please know - I am thankful for you. I am thankful for the unique, once in an eternity light that you bring to the world. Have you ever really thought about it? 

What are YOU thankful for? 


Love, 

Rio

Embrace Your Passion

"I remember the first time I felt music from the inside out. Five years old,  singing Ring Of Fire by Johnny Cash. Goosebumps and chills sprang up all over me, my voice caught in my throat and I was moved to tears. You see, I didn't choose music, it chose me." - Rio

Embrace Your Passion

"The Muse. She visits at all hours of the day and night, especially in dreams. I can't tell you how many songs have come straight out of my dreams. I wake up humming a melody or singing a chorus and it will not let me be until I get it down in studio." -Rio

Rise

"My next release is called, Rise. 

We're all called to rise above situations in life. Be it where we came from, or didn't come from. Choices we make, or didn't make... so many moments when we are challenged to rise. Music just makes the process infinitely better." - Rio
