Riley Green: Get That Man A Beer Review
Riley Green is a born and bred Bama boy. Raised on the sounds of old traditional Country, Bluegrass, and Southern Gospel music. He learned the spirit of songwriting and performing at a young age while spending time with his grandfather, Bufford Green, who ran Golden Saw Music Hall. It was those experiences that would lay the foundation for young Green for years to come. His music is a mixture of outlaw-rebellion and respect nod for tradition. This unification of Riley’s original music has already tallied over 27million streams to date while his latest music video for “Bury Me In Dixie” has been viewed over a million times since last fall. Riley tours relentlessly. Now signed to BMLG Records, he has been releasing a string of stellar EPs, In A Truck Right Now (2018), Outlaws Like Us (2018), County Line (2018), Riley Green EP (2018), Bury Me In Dixie (2018) and now in 2019, Get That Man A Beer. To say Green has had a prolific two years, clearly would be an understatement.
“In Love By Now” throws down with an electric guitar riff over a medium rock/country beat. Green enters with the melody and instantly ingratiates the ears with his warm country charm. The lyrics are fun and easy to relate to and enjoy. The chorus is memorable, and the backing band is excellent. The production is full, and the tune has an interesting harmonic progression. Green has a strong vocal style, masculine and full energy. The result, “In Love By Now” is a country tune that will make any playlist perk up.
Keeping the country rock sound going is “Bettin’ Man.” Another distorted electric guitar figure drives the track as Green delivers another powerful melody. This is a relaxed rock country groove feel that lets Green dig into the rhythm and pull out the feeling of each phrase. Green’s voice is authentically country hitting the right accents with a relaxed delivery. The combination of rock influenced instrument parts and feel with Green’s all country delivery is the success of the tune and this EP.
Reed continues to put forth solid material that garners praise among his fans, its easy to see why. His darkly hued voice with just the right amount of gravel and southern honey drip is tasty stuff. His latest release for BMLG is a winning listen throughout. So, let me say, Get That Man A Beer. Hell, a round for everyone while your at it!
