Gearing up for some shows pretty soon.  

In the meantime, read what Metronome Magazine said about our new album:

From Metronome Magazine-Boston: 

Riddle & The Stars is a collaboration between Australian singer-songwriter Ben Riddle and husband and wife team, Bobbo & Tracy Byrnes of The Fallen Stars. Formerly from Massachusetts, Bobbo and Tracy have been living and making music in their home of California for the last ten or so years along with drummer Brandon Allen. In 2013, The Byrnes’ met Ben Riddle while on tour in Germany. Finding common ground the trio decided to collaborate on some original music and soon eleased their debut album, This Is Happening. With Ben discovering the tenor guitar, Bobbo exploring the pedal steel, and Tracy layering in vocal harmonies and bass, the trio found their sound. Now the collective returns with an engaging new sophomore release called New Coastline, that finds all three principals taking on lead vocal hores. 
Melding country, Americana, folk and everything in between, Riddle & The Stars have created a beautifully crafted album. Best tracks: the reflective “Running Back To You,” the memorable “I May Never Know,” the fingerpicking mastery of the album’s magnificent title track, “New Coastline,” resplendent with jangling guitars and superb vocal harmonies, and the sweet sentiment of “When We Ride” highlighted by Tracy’s lead vocals. An album worthy of note. Good stuff! [B.M.O.]
