Bio

AL Riordan (@al_gal_pal_) is a singer-songwriter from the beaches of Newcastle, Australia.
With roots in classical vocal training, her music pushes the boundaries of traditional contemporary songwriting and embodies the experimental nature of Electronic-Pop music.
First and foremost, she is an artist.
With her own music.
Her own sound.
Her own story.

Praised as “something different”, her voice and music lie comfortably with the likeness of Imogen Heap, Kimbra and Bon Iver on the edges of contemporary popular music.
With a heavy focus on using vocal sampling in production, her songs quite literally embody her, by using her own effortless vocals and honesty in her lyrics.
With melodies that get stuck in your head, production that dances the line between natural and experimental and a voice like none other, AL Riordan is something new.

Studying at Berklee College of Music, she is moving between Boston, United States, and Newcastle, Australia, AL is currently working on releasing singles and an E.P. being released throughout this year and is participating in numerous projects with fellow musicians.
All in all, AL Riordan makes music, and makes it her own.

She’s a gal.
She’s a pal.

This one's got a dreamy, dazzling touch in that production. You've got a nice deepness and control in your voice too. Lovely debut lady!
