The Boston-based instrumental trio, Riding Shotgun, originally formed in May of 2002 as an experimental side project among a few close friends. Things quickly evolved into something larger as the three realized a strong musical connection. Riding Shotgun exhibits songs that draw upon the 'collective unconscious' and evoke emotions that take the listener on a journey through rich musical soundscapes. To draw style comparisons, Riding Shotgun's sound has been likened as a cross between Tortoise, Medeski, Martin & Wood, Radiohead and Pink Floyd. After releasing a 4-song EP in 2003 ('leave by eleven...'), performing at venues such as The Middle East and TT the Bear's, and opening for bands like METRIC and DRUMS & TUBA (Righteous Babe Records), the band is proud to announce the release of their debut album 'Nightfalls' on Random Chance Records. 'Nightfalls' is primed to be an engaging, elegant and expansive listening experience for fans of almost any genre of music.
