This new, young artist is truly unparalleled in the music world. Through the shear majestic power of her own voice, has transcended the myriad bargain bin pop-punk princesses into a profound creative force. Her voice not only refines the word “power” in power-pop in her more upbeat tracks, but can flawlessly transform itself, becoming heartbreaking, delicate and haunting. The emotions and experience she evokes are made all the more impressive when one discovers that her artistic potential has not yet peaked at a tender 19. Ria is an artist whose fresh new style of classic rock and roll has just begun to shake the music landscape. You have been warned. —

With a deep passion for music and her undeniable talents Ria is well on her way to stake her claim as the next pop music teen queen. For more log onto

Day 814 Barefoot in the Park Play at Curtain Call Theater in Braintree MA

Comments Off

Curtain Call theater will be performing the Neil Simon Classic Barefoot in the Park!   Come see a live 60′s style sitcom in the vein of “I Love Lucy” performed right before your eyes at Curtain Call Theater, 182 Commercial St in Braintree, MA.


Neil Simon’s (writer of “The Odd Couple”) Barefoot in the Park follows the lives of newlyweds Paul and Corrie Bratter as they adjust to married life in a tiny Greenwich Village apartment circa 1964. Paul is a lawyer who’s wound a little too tight, while Corrie is a free spirit with all kinds of romantic notions. Comic chaos ensues as the Bratters’ marriage begins to collapse under the pressure of a five-flight walk-up, a skylight that leaks snow, an eccentric neighbor who must climb through their apartment to get to his, and Corrie’s misguided attempt to marry off her mother.
