Sapphire Out Now, Two New Albums On The Way


Northern Ireland – June 12, 2017 – There aren’t many bands with as much diversity in terms of age as Riff Diamond. With a lead singer barely old enough to drive in the states and a drummer who is almost three times her age, one has to wonder how they make it work but they do. The four men and women who make up Riff Diamond are a mixture of characters who complete one another in a way that allows them to deliver a true blue, 100% Blues Rock experience.

In the years since forming Riff Diamond have dropped one album, Sapphire. One fan took the time to let them know their thoughts on the record, “I recently stumbled across your album, Sapphire. I would more so like you to know that I happen to find it to be utterly brilliant and that it has now become one of my most favourite albums of the year. In fact, I know I’ll enjoy listening to it for years to come.” Since then they’ve toured all around their native Ireland, impressing everyone along the way, including Rock Therapy NI. The promoters noted of their live show, “You guys were on fire last night, so glad I came along to see your set, one of the best live bands on the NI Music scene. Dublin is going to be blown away by you guys.”

A modern take on the classic 70’s style of music, Riff Diamond is respectful when it comes to keeping up with old-fashioned values and well-crafted melodies and harmonies. That topped with thoughtful lyrics and virtuoso musicianship makes them the antithesis of bland, mass-produced, over-engineered and marketing-driven, mainstream pop.

Riff Diamond is currently working on two follow-ups to Sapphire. One will be another album chalked full of originals, while the other will be a cover album with a Riff-twist. Those interested in adding any of the songs from Sapphire to their playlists, or interviewing Riff Diamond can get in touch via the information provided below.
