There are at least four different bands with the name Riviera. One from Germany, one from the United States, one from Australia and one from Italy. 1) Riviera (USA) was founded in the thriving Chicago music scene in 2000. Through personnel changes and musical shifts, the band has created a sound that is grounded in American folk and rock with electronic overtones and feedback. Riviera’s musical palette contains shades of artists you already love (Neil Young, Rolling Stones, George Harrison) blended together with colors unique to each of the band’s three singer-songwriters. Singer-songwriter Derek Phillips formed the band in an attempt to bring together the elements of American music that had grabbed his attention over the years. His lyrics paint colors rather than shapes in your mind and leave you with feelings that creep up on you days later.Lead guitarist Mick Radichel writes songs with a decidedly southern flair, though he hails from Milwaukee. Wide varieties of playing styles from Keith Richards to Smokey Hormel to Jim O’Rourke provide the bones to the songs. Josh Boisvert has a repertoire of material reminiscent of the lonesome troubadour.

His piano and organ playing and harmonizing vocals round out the band’s sound. Bassist Matt Usner brings folk sensibilities and quiet anchoring, while drummer Joshua Rogers lends the foundation with solid rhythm and unexpected flair. 2) Riviera (Europe/USA/Japan) Lounge retro 60ies pop group founded by the german siblings Julia and Roland Wolff. It is mainly a brother/ sister studio project in which Julia and Roland play all the instruments on their own compositions. From 2001 on Riviera successfully released six CDs in Japan (Philter/Sony) and South Korea (Chilimusic/t-entertainment).

Artists such as Fantastic Plastic Machine, Konichi Yasuharu of Pizzicato 5 or Shuya Okino remixed their works. Their songs have been used in various TV-commercials for LG Telecom, KIA and others in Asia. 3) Riviera (AUS) a rock/screamo band from Brisbane, Queensland, Australia. Little known outside of Brisbane, but known but many local bands and a few of the nations bigger bands. Supporting bands as Behind Crimson Eyes and more. 4) Riviera (ITA) is a punk/emo band from Romagna http://megariviera.bandcamp.com Read more on Last.fm.
