Creating an explosive and moody sound that is signature to their post-indie style, Ridley's music catapults a hybrid of college and commercial rock into unique territories of intensity and allure. Fueled by electrifying presence, bass and drum-orientated grooves, interwoven guitar textures, and lucid vocal deliveries, Ridley's lyrically-driven songs explore artistic expressions of the body, mind, heart and soul. Ridley seeks to ignite powerful experiences for individuals and audiences both on record and in live performances. The interaction and transformation from these encounters continually inspires the band to venture further into unexplored channels of the communication and creative processes. Formed in late 2003, Ridley is based in Los Angeles with members J Moore (Vocals/Guitar), Chris DiCesare (Guitar/Backing Vocals), Robbie Vanderluit (Bass/Backing Vocals), and Fernas Oliviera (Drums). The band's influences include Nirvana, Beck, Nine Inch Nails, Primus, Pink Floyd, and Lou Reed.
