Q.Tell us about who you are & What you do?
Hello Earth, I'm Jermaine Riley. I sing, dance and write songs. I hope you enjoy them! I also do a bit of graphic design and do all my own artwork, websites, etc... as well as edit and co-produce my own music videos. I'm here to entertain you.
Something everyone should listen to.
I'm currently writing a few songs to pitch to other artists both in the UK and internationally, alongside writing my next album, which I've VERY excited about. It'll be my first commercial release as a solo artist.
On tour, at the Grammy's, in the studio making great music... I see a lot of success in the next 5 years by the grace of God. I just want to build, grow and get better at what I do and provide for my family.
I'm inspired by other great artists. It doesn't matter where you're from, but Michael Jackson, Usher, Boyz II Men, Brandy, Drake and Ed Sheeran are just some of my main influences. I'm inspired by their art. I'm inspired by anything artistic really. I also draw inspiration from comic books and movies. I'm a huge movie buff!
Q: Who would you rather listen to UK or US Music?
That's an extremely hard question. Because most of my main influences are from the US, I've learnt most of what I know from US artists. However, in terms of new talent the UK is killing the world right now. So, if I wanted to stay close to my roots musically, I'd go with US... but if I wanted to look toward the future, I'm UK all the way! Haha!
Right now I'm into Adele, Ed Sheeran... Cherri V, Frank Ocean, Jhene Aiko... Chris Brown, Emeli Sande... and this SUPER talented singer/songwriter named Lianne La Havas. I went to see her live recently and it was one of the greatest shows I've ever seen in my life. VERY few are touching her vocally! I'm a huge fan and would marry her and settle down without hesitation. Hahaha!
Q: Please describe your fashion style in 5 words?
Simply smart, clean, tidy sexiness. Hahaha!
