2022 K-LOVE Fan Awards: 7 Unforgettable Performances Featuring Powerhouse Females
By Lindsay Williams
Capitol CMG artist Riley Clemmons' music is the intersection of her root in church music and love for fresh, upbeat pop. Her first single, Broken Prayers, is a powerful anthem that combines compelling melodies with a rich, thoughtful chorus. Though youthful, Riley has a seasoned strength that shines throughout her music. She began writing songs at the age of 13 and played shows around her hometown. Her inaugural collection of music finds her working with a bevy of top writers including GRAMMY Award®-winning Emily Weisband (Hillary Scott) and Josh Kerr (Kelsea Ballerini, Danielle Bradbery) alongside GRAMMY®-acclaimed producers Ben Glover (for KING & COUNTRY, Mandisa) and Tedd T (for KING & COUNTRY, Stacie Orrico).
Riley vulnerably shares her open faith along with her stunning vocals and sunny personality. Yet if there’s one thing Riley hopes listeners will take from her debut single, it is what a growing process it’s been for her. “Stepping into who I am as a young woman and a child of God and finding my own identity through that is really the core of all the songs I’ve written,” she says. “I’m excited for people to hear that, and I hope it will help them find comfort in their own journey and in their own personal growth. We all have ‘Broken Prayers,’ but my hope is that this song will help others find comfort in the midst of their own brokenness.”
