Niles Rivers Bio & Press Kit

I am an intensely creative person. I say that because in every facet of my creativity I try to express sincere passion and genuine, rich color. Heartistry.

I am a singer-songwriter who has written songs with multi-Grammy Award winning music producers David Foster and John Leventhal, and I’ve worked with many incredible writers and musicians along the way. I work well creating music with people. I love collaboration. I feel it brings out the best in everyone involved.

I am an actor who has been blessed to grace the stage as “Simba” in Disney’s Lion King, also I was nominated for an Ovation Award for “Featured Actor in a Musical” in Smokey Joe’s Cafe.

MOMENT I WILL NEVER FORGET: Upon meeting Leslie Lee, the playwright of ‘”‘First Breeze of Summer’, in which he had just seen me perform as the character ‘Lou’; he said, “Phenomenal job, young man. Did you know you were playing me?…You nailed it.” Now maybe he says that to everyone, but he said it to me that night. It was the highest compliment I’ve ever been paid professionally.
