Riana Nelson is the lead female singer in the sibling trio project, Derik Nelson & Family. Riana and her brothers have recently been signed to the nation's largest booking agency, EastCoast Entertainment / ECE Touring. Booking, press, and agency info for Derik Nelson & Family can be found here.
Raised in the Pacific Northwest, Derik Nelson & Family's signature sound features velvety three-part pop/folk vocal harmonies only a family can deliver. Siblings Derik, Riana, and Dalten have been performing together since childhood. They’ve garnered over 3.6 million views on YouTube, performed in 100+ cities across the USA, and reached nearly 100,000 students of all ages with educational music workshops, outreach programming, and fundraising assemblies. Derik has appeared regularly as the lead guitarist on television’s “Glee,” among other shows.
Derik Nelson & Family has performed the US National Anthem at Seattle Seahawks NFL, Seattle Sounders FC, and Portland Trailblazers NBA home games, and are proud to tour nationwide with their own headlining concert as a family in some of the finest performing arts centers and historic halls in the country including the Levitt Pavilion (Dayton, OH), the Bartlesville Community Center (Bartlesville, OK), the Corn Palace (Mitchell, SD). Most recently, Derik Nelson & Family was selected to travel to the countries of Moldova and Albania to represent the United States as Cultural Ambassadors through the U.S. Dept of State and American Music Abroad program.
If you're attending one of the family's mainstage concerts (featured in Performing Arts Centers across the country) you can expect pristine sound, a state of the art light show, and an integrated 20-foot video display. Derik’s interactive “clones” are featured throughout the show on the 5 screen video “wall.” The multiple “Derik clones” play many different instruments as a “virtual band.” This innovative technical marvel designed by Dalten uses the latest in audio/video technology to take audiences on an aural and visual journey through time, space, an impressive array of landscapes, weather conditions, and musical “settings.”
Listeners will be impressed with the perfectly blended three-part-harmony vocals, in addition to Derik’s thoughtful arrangements of cover songs from a variety of genres, styles, and eras. Derik's original music is very well received by all ages, with lyrical themes of home, family, and the seasons of the Pacific Northwest. Backed with warm acoustic guitar, and "silk on the ears" musicality, these genuinely kind, charming, and talented siblings have a bond that’s palpable, both on stage and off. Audiences of every age are sure to be mesmerized from the opening to the dazzling finish.
