Riley Skinner is a singer-songwriter and electro-folk alternative musician newly based in Minneapolis, Minnesota. Her music draws on intriguing melodies, textured layers of sound, and intimate lyrics. Skinner's music asks the listener to join her in being vulnerable, being gentle, being honest, and being brave. 


Skinner studied composition at Bennington College in Vermont where she found inspiration in her mentors, collaborators, and the haunting environment of New England. She recently moved from Seattle to Minneapolis and now performs primarily in the Midwest. 


In addition to creating music for her solo project and her duo, Heddwen, Skinner enjoys collaborating with dancers and visual artists to create customized soundscapes for performances, videos, and installations.
