Singer-songwriter Riley Clemmons on Friday dropped her self-titled solo debut album, Riley Clemmons, on Capitol CMG. Her first full-length project features well-received songs like "Better For It," "Hold On," as well as her 2018 breakthrough debut single "Broken Prayers."
In addition to the debut single, "Better For It" is currently in regular rotation on Radio Disney and the recently released video for "Hold On," has garnered over 500,000 views in less than ten days. Featuring a Beats by Dre brand partnership, her latest video was also featured on Friday's YouTube/SiriusXM Top 15 Show on Hits 1 Radio due to its high-ranking views.
Early on release day, Seacrest Studios in Clemmon's native Nashville, Tenn., played host to a visit from the 18-year old singer-songwriter, where she performed her songs "Better For It," "I'll Stay," "Broken Prayers," as well as a cover of Charlie Puth's "The Way I Am." In attendance were children from the city's Monroe Carell Jr. Children's Hospital at Vanderbilt. Ahead of the release date, she also performed with SiriusXM in New York City.
Later this year, Clemmons is hitting Atlanta, Phoenix, Los Angeles, Denver, Charlotte, and more as she joins friends Danny Gokey and Tauren Wells for the 30-city "The Hope Encounter" tour, with dates scheduled coast-to-coast spanning September through November.

Clemmons began writing songs at the age of 13 while maintaining the full-time demands of being a student. Fast forward five years, and she has blossomed into a seasoned 18-year-old songstress about to embark on a promising musical career.
