Oliver Riot is comprised of twins, Ben & Alex Moore, as well as drummer, Chris Judd; keyboardist/producer, Brandon Hallam (Real Miilk); and violinist, Desiree Hazley. The twins began performing Gypsy Jazz inside New Mexico restaurants & coffee shops when they were 14 years old. They purchased their first car, a green Ford Explorer, with this money and began writing their own music at age 16, which won two talent shows at their high school in Albuquerque, NM.
In 2011, Ben and Alex moved to Los Angeles in order to pursue music, where they met Chris Judd and Brandon Hallam. The following year, Oliver Riot won GRAMMY U's "Rock The Mic 2012" competition in Pasadena, CA and was awarded recording time for their original song "Coma Mind" with legendary producer, Mike Clink (Guns N Roses, Metallica, Eddie Money). In 2014, Oliver Riot took 1st Place in Azusa Pacific University's battle of the bands.
The group performs regularly throughout Southern California and is currently recording their second EP. Oliver Riot released their debut E.P., "Hallucinate", on Nov. 14, 2015 with producer, Real Miilk and Desiree Hazley on violin, which can be found on all streaming services and music platforms.
