Ria Plays


Ria Plays

Described by Slap Magazine as ‘quirky to say the least’, the distinctive vocals of songwriter and visual artist Ria Parfitt are ‘reminiscent of the eccentricity of Bjork but with moments as powerful as Florence Welch’ and her first single Postcard, released in July 2018, has received plenty of radio play on WigWam and on stations in the US and the accompanying video was picked by The Devil Has The Best Tuna as a video of the week. Two more tracks – Volcano and Good Luck With Love – followed in November 2018 and Ria appeared in WildSpiritz magazine in January 2019.

Ria Plays is the band she fronts alongside Justin Seeger on bass and keyboards and drummer Jonah Webb and the trio are currently booking gigs all over the UK – they recently opened for Colorado rockers The Velveteers and played a well-received showcase at the Fleece, Bristol. The band describe their sound as ‘unashamedly pop punk’ with ‘songs for the strange’ and their new EP Jar Of Fishes – described by Fresh On The Net as ‘raw, musical and groovy… just a perfect combination’ – is out now.
