Bickley Rivera / Bio

On her aptly titled National recording debut Chillin' After Five, composer and multi instrumentalist Bickley Rivera brings a fresh taste of Caribbean flair to the contemporary jazz scene with a unique instrument – the tenor steelpans. Blending the seductive tropical vibe of her primary instrument with harmonies and featured solos on guitar , flute and sax, the Tampa Bay based artist runs the stylistic gamut from pop to jazz funk to Brazilian to reggae. Blending the sounds for a one of a kind experience, Bickley has mastered the arts of chillout and Nu-jazz. Chillin’ After Five includes guest appearances by several prominent international recording artists, including Dutch saxophonist/flutist Praful (best known for his #1 instrumental hit “Sigh”); Magrus Borges, drummer for bossa nova singer Bebel Gilberto; and renowned saxophonist Ed Calle. Rivera is also featured on keyboards and vocals. Catch a live Bickley Rivera show to enhance your senses and warm your spirit!
