A sense of daring is a key element in Riggs brand of country, a rock-infused sound with a chip on its sonic shoulder from a guy who counts Garth Brooks, Foo Fighters, George Jones and Blink-182 among his influences. Between the swampy, thumping hard-rock crunch of Angolas Lament, the mysterious darkness of Long Shot and the feverish snarl of High On A Country Song, all of those raucous, rebellious elements find their place inside the boundary-pushing attitude on the two albums and two EPs Riggs has created on his own dime since 2010.His music has become an essential piece of the red-dirt scene in Texas, though its earning a distinct spot in the national consciousness as well. Riggs last album the 2016 release Breathless, distributed by indie Thirty Tigers debuted at No. 12 on the Billboard Country Albums chart.
