If you could have anything you ever wanted, how long would you wait for it?

Almost 8 years ago, I set out on a journey to make my life my own through music. Over these 8 years, it has become more and more apparent that greatness takes time and effort to achieve. While many milestones have been crossed, the path ahead is still long and treacherous. One can’t help but ask, “Are we there yet?”

This question inspired the title of my 8-track EP, 'are we there yet?', symbolizing the ongoing pursuit towards success and reminding me to keep pushing forward, one song at a time.

I’ve been releasing one song every month since September 2020, and after the first year, I decided to create a compilation of those first-year songs called 'i’ll see you there' to celebrate one year of monthly releases and the many years to come.

'are we there yet?' is a callback to that project, bringing together a few of the singles from 2022 while adding a couple of songs exclusive to the EP. Since its release, 'are we there yet?' has garnered close to half a million streams on Spotify, further standing as a testament to where I’m headed in my music career.

My hope is that through this project, like-minded individuals like you will feel empowered by the idea that great things take patience, effort, and resilience. These are lessons I’ve learned that have only made every payoff that much sweeter.

Join me as we navigate this journey together.

Who am I?

Adriel Rivera

I am a Latin American indie/bedroom pop musician, doing my best to brighten your day with the stories I tell through my monthly releases.

My musical journey began when I started writing songs on my home keyboard at the age of 10. Shortly after, I delved into producing and spent my teenage years refining my craft, ultimately deciding to pursue music seriously during my sophomore year of high school.

Things started gaining momentum when I launched my YouTube channel, "Show Your Genius," where I shared the music production skills I had learned with other musicians like myself. Over time, I built a subscriber base of over 30,000.

Three years ago, in September 2020, I began releasing a new song every month on the 25th, aspiring to be the musician I would have admired growing up—one who consistently cares about their community, craft, and message.

With the support of listeners like you, I've had the opportunity to collaborate with and earn sponsorships from industry leaders such as FL Studio, DistroKid, and many more. I've also amassed over 7,000,000 streams on Spotify and continue to grow.

I'm excited to have you join me as I continue to ascend as Chicagoland's latest rising prospect.
