Riotmaker is a 7-piece rock band with a reggae vibe from Sacramento, California. The group was started as a solo project for Jeffry Valerio. ‘Between Love & Light‘ was released earlier 2020 let’s know more about their story below.
Frankly, I consider this track as one of the most special tunes that I have heard recently. I love the rock guitar tone combined with reggae beat style, along with powerful rock vocals plus reggae style back/secondary vocals! Impressive combination indeed. You should know that Jeffry has a very strong music background, well, back in 1997 as he was the frontman of the reggae/rock powerhouse band Shakedown until 2005, and after a hiatus for four years he started writing music again in 2009. Riotmaker has been performing live all over the US since 2013 and their music has had extensive airplay on California’s #1 rock station, 98 Rock. The fellas have been fortunate enough to share the stage with many amazing acts such as Rebelution, Stephan Marley, Long Beach Dub Allstars, Rome Ramirez from Sublime with Rome, The Expendables, Hirie, Katastro, Passafire, Tesla, Oleander, Middle Class Rut, Fishbone, Authority Zero, J BOOG, Common Kings, Rappin 4 Tay, Anuhea, The Supervillains, New Kingston, The Slackers, Yellowman, Easy Star All-Stars, and many more. Riotmaker has put released a plethora of music that is available on all major digital distribution platforms (find all links below).
