Cleveland, OH-based musician Nick Riff has already spent a great deal of time of his life making music in bands around the Ohio and Kentucky regions. Early on, Riff got his start performing in both original and cover-based bands. But for the last two decades, Nick Riff has been creating his own brand of original rock in a solo career that has included releasing several EPs as well as albums.
While most musicians follow the current trends in music, Nick Riff has been creating a very retro sounding style to his music. Riff has been creating music that incorporates a very psychedelic feel to it. With that feeling and the space and time elements and subjects that Riff writes about, his music fills a very unique niche in music.
The last decade, in particular, has seen Nick Riff creating and releasing albums on his own and with his musical outfit of Freak Element that largely incorporates the space and time elements that have become a trademark of Riff’s music. Just recently, Nick Riff celebrated the release of his newest album entitled Photon Shift.
