Veteran reggae singer who started his career as harmony singer on [l=Treasure Isle] with producer [a=Arthur "Duke" Reid].

He joined [a=Uniques, The] when [a=Slim Smith] decided to disband [a=Techniques, The]. But after a brief run of hits Smith decided to go solo and Riley decamped to New York.

He was persuaded to return to Jamaica in 1981 by Sly & Robbie with whom he made the classic "Rhydim Driven" album and had his biggest hit "Love & Devotion". This was followed by many other hits in the 80s before the advent of digital ragga ended the popularity of his style of vocal anthems

After a brief spell with [a=Wailers, The] in the late 80s Riley moved to Miami, opening a reggae shop, but in the 90s moved back to Jamaica starting his own [l=Love Promotions] label and appearing regularly on the reggae festival circuit
