Featured Artist of the Month – Riley McMonigold
Riley McMonigold, a producer and songwriter from Seattle, Washington, blurs genres such as Rock, Alternative, and Electronica to create an instrumental pop rock style that’ll keep you grooving. He keeps active on SoundCloud, releasing new tracks regularly. His track ‘Hope’ keeps things chill, with mild tempo trip hop DNA, showcasing Riley’s fusion of sounds. Tracks like ‘Rise’ and ‘Limitless’ are perfect for driving and pair well with busy coffee shops or wide open roads, while ‘Yo’ marries together a hip hop beat and guitar for a smooth vibe. You can find his music on iTunes, Spotify, and Youtube. Open Labs is excited to share his music all month long. Give Riley a follow if you like what you hear!
