"Alt-country band Riviera left Chicago—understandably, as that city has many, many other alt-country bands—and made the move to Portland, where there are no alt-country bands. Oh, I kid. Actually, the term "alt-country" unfairly boils down Riviera—who, yes, have their share of twang and strum and high, lonesome harmonizing, but also have depth in each of their songs, telling fairly involved stories in plain and appealingly uncomplicated ways. Their Watching Western Skies EP is an impressive introduction to these new Portlanders, offering ditties both pretty and nitty-gritty." — Portland Mercury

"i was and still am a huge fan of their 05 release at the end of the american century and contains one of my favorite songs of the past ten years, “your american past.” during their stint in chicago they opened for the likes of tweedy, son volt, califone, etc… if these guys trust the men of riviera, shouldnt you? definitely loving the new song…" — Gregor, Captains Dead

"Rainin’ sideways They got all growed up in windy Chicago, but Riviera has relocated to rainy Portland where their Americana folk rock is just what the doctor ordered whenever our various rivers overflow. The band features Derek Phillips on guitar, vocals, harmonica and piano; Mick Radichel on guitar and vocals; Jeff Porter on pedal steel, dobro, mandolin and guitar; Robert Finn on bass; and Paul DeMichele on drums. Riviera plows in the same fields cut by Wilco, the Jayhawks and other y’all-ternative types, and boasts a rich, full sound that will ease your mind even as she tells you it’s not you, it’s her. " — Rob Cullivan, Portland Tribune
