Kevin Riley is a songwriter and musician whose confidence and faith in God overflows and is fervently expressed through a medium called a song. Riley is a passionate worshipper appreciating the power of music in relation to serving and acknowledging God.
Being both Pastor of In His Presence Worship Ministries and CEO of In His Presence Productions, Inc., Kevin Riley confirms that song and melody is essential to the worship experience and is dedicated to educating as well as sharing this necessities of worship with all who strive to praise God in Spirit and in truth.
Based in Little Rock, AR, Kevin Riley & Atmosphere have a sound that is not of the common gospel group. Begin with their traditional gospel roots, mix in Contemporary Christian and add a splash of alternative pop music to create a unique blend of worship, this group engages in a movement contributing to the manifestation of God’s tangible presence.
Atmosphere is a group of dedicated vocalists unified by the Spirit of God, who strives to impart prevailing tones of praise and worship. Renata Jones, Rashana Riley, D’Ana Goodwin and Tina Riley Johnson accompany Kevin, piercing the airwaves and creating an environment conducive to receiving a Word from God. Encouragement, confirmation, revelation and prophecy can be expected from these anointed worshippers.
Just Me And You is filled with great songs, including Joel Houston’s song made popular by Hillsong “From The Inside Out” which Kevin sings with his sister Tina. Originals include “Higher Than Anything” which is an upbeat shout of praise that proclaims the sovereignty of God’s royalty and the intimacy that is needed in true worship. “Jesus You Are” is an outpour of adoration of Who Jesus Is, while “You Are Great” is a stand out song that speaks of a heart of pure acknowledgement of God’s power; and title track “Just Me And You”, intimately draws the Lord’s favor through the embrace of an intimate relationship with God. Kevin is assisted with the prolific song writing on the album by his son, Xavier Riley, who pens most of the project and Jansen Goodwin, who composes most of the music.
Great things can be expected when we walk in harmony, and the ministry of Kevin Riley & Atmosphere is provoking the spirit of the true worshipper to unite with our divine purpose of bringing glory to God in the highest. Although music can be entertaining, Kevin Riley encourages all to embrace the art of music by making songs a part of one’s lifestyle before God and man!
“While the key element to music is sound, I want listeners to hear my heart and passion beyond this imperfect voice,” Kevin expresses. “Atmosphere is there to set the tone by which I am able to minister melody from my heart, with that, I want others to be drawn in and compelled to honor God.”
