My First Love
Bio: Riverdale is a Christian/Indie/Power-pop trio from South GA, a place that has spawned bands with the likes of Forever Changed, Chasing Victory and From First to Last. Though we have been playing music collectively and separate for close to 7 years, we have, just in the past year, changed our member lineup and genre. Also in the past year we have built a fan base in North Georgia and Florida by playing in towns such as Atlanta, Dahlonega, Acworth, Jacksonville, Titusville (Orlando area) and Tampa Bay. With our new 8-track indie release 'My First Love,' we plan to extend our fan base outside of Georgia and Florida and into North and South Carolina, Alabama and Tennessee by way of shows, radio and the internet. With all members working together as one to create a unique sound, the three members contribute different influences to the band. Josh Wilson's (lead vocals and guitar) catchy melodies remind some of Fall Out Boy or Maroon 5. While Jason Stone's (bass and backup vocals) bass lines lead like Flea of the Red Hot Chili Peppers minus the funk and the energetic and creative drum beats of Randy Harrell sometimes are compared to Jimmy Eat World or Forever Changed. Our energetic live show backed up by our fresh and creative song-writing, brings a breath of fresh air to all of those who are tired of the endless ocean of mainstream. Our music is packed with interesting vocal harmonies, bass riffs that lead instead of follow, and melodies that you'll sing days after a show. As new investments are fueled by new opportunities, we continue to strive to make our mark in the underground music world with hopes of one day being the next big thing. Lyrics: My first love For what it's worth I never wanted anything to come between what we have and what we've had. You still made me see everything. Things get in the way and I try so hard but I fall apart without you. I need you. It's not hard to see that you should be, you should always be my first love. I need you. How I need you. There's something about this night that makes me want to run in circles and scream so high. I start to tingle. I feel the cheer. I see you there with open arms and it takes my breath away. You love me so much. Vindication is the anthem of our lives Jealousy is motivation. I want to be the best and always will be in my head. Compromising everything for just one second of fame, just one day in the spotlight. Holding on, never letting go to all the goals that human nature gives me. And it's alright. Yeah it's ok. Cause everyone around me is starving for the same thing. What is right and what is wrong is painted in black and white to me. So who are you to tell me anything? When I fall down you're always there. I see you taking notes. You're always taking notes. Well it's ok just keep saying that and maybe one day you can believe it. Keep lying to yourself and no one will deny and everything in life you will justify. Vindication is the anthem the anthem of our lives and you want it. You want it now. What is right and what is wrong is painted in black and white when I fall down you're always there. You're always taking note. I surrender I am not alone down here. Everything is becoming clearer cause you have prepared the way today. I'm growing stronger now. I once was lost but now I'm new in the one who showed me how to live, who gave and left nothing left to give. You may complete your will in me. Your face is all I see when they start to criticize you fill me with love. All love is what I feel. She makes a first impression. It tells me what she's looking for and I need your strength. Never searching for justice but never ceasing to give. You made me scream and shout cause I've died to myself. Now it's your time to shine, come on.
