Will Parry and Steve Ornest began writing music together while studying at the Berklee College of Music in Boston. They sent their early demos back to music industry professionals in Los Angeles, and encouraged by their response, decided to make the move. Soon after arriving in Los Angeles they met bassist Matthew Denis and drummer Aviv Cohen, and Fallen Riviera was born.
The band hit the local club circuit hard, gradually building a loyal fan base. After releasing their debut EP entitled "The White Dress EP," Fallen Riviera embarked on a brief college tour.
They returned back into the studio and recorded "Six Mines," which was ranked album of the year by Music Connection Magazine and awarded them the 2011 Lauren Picard Emerging Artist of the Year Award at Cornell University. This sparked a five week national tour for the band.
Fallen Riviera is preparing for a massive college tour which kicks off April 20th, 2012 and is in support of their upcoming EP which includes the single "Drained."
