Riki Knox is a hot up and coming Canadian country artist who’s magnetic, down home personality, connects with her fans and new audiences alike.

A consummate professional and highly entertaining performer, Riki knows how to command the stage and put on a great show. Her set list includes catchy original songs and a few well known covers that keep the audience entertained and on their feet.

CMAO Rising Star

Nominated for Rising Star at the 2015 CMAO (Country Music Association of Ontario) Awards, Riki also took home the Durham Region Music Award for ‘Best Country Song'.

She spent 2016 playing on stages throughout Canada and the U.S, including the reknowned Hard Rock Stage during CMA Fest in Nashville, TN and Beach Blast in Shediac, New Brunswick where she played main stage with Florida Georgia Line.

Riki has also shared stages with Dallas Smith, Cole Swindell, Dustin Lynch, Eaton Corbin & Cold Creek County, to name a few.

Debut Album – That's Country Y'all!

Riki's debut album, named after the title track "That's Country Y'all" was released in November ’15 preceding a highly successful and sold out launch party. Having been compared to the sounds and sass of Miranda Lambert with the heartfelt honesty of Dolly Parton, Riki blends her country sound with just the right amount of rock that can be found in much of today's country music.

Industry Quotes

Riki Knox is the real deal. She's a fireball performer who sings with grit and passion, and lives what she sings about. A beautiful mix of modern edge and cool, with a tip of the hat to yesterday. She's Jagger, Joplin, Haggard, and Dolly all wrapped into one with a fresh new sound. She's the hottest thing to hit Canadian radio in years!"
— Willie Mack, Award winning Singer/Songwriter/Producer


RIki was an absolute sweetheart and her voice was undeniably even sweeter. Her stage presence was electric, there was not a single person seated. Her energy was infectious and her tone, nothing less than heavenly. Some of the purest sounds our hall has ever had the pleasure of hearing. I can honestly say I've heard an angel sing, it's Riki Knox.

She has a strong, unique voice that we all fell in love with. She is a true lady of Country Music here in Canada, a gem that we are honoured to have had on our stage." — Lynn Hepburn – Lindsay Country Jamboree Administrator

It was great to write with Riki" as an Artist and a songwriter, she likes to dig deep and makes her co-writers dig a little deeper too to get to the real honesty in a song"… And that in my opinion is what songwriting is all about!!"

I've had the pleasure of interviewing Riki on my online radio show. She is a genuine person with the elements it takes to be a success in music: great voice, songwriting skills and the ‘look’. Her sound is truly 'Country' which listeners are longing to hear these days. She was raised on the classics and loves singing Country music. Her voice will draw you in and make you believe what she is singing about. I am honoured to call her a friend and can't wait for what lies ahead with her music. Riki is truly a Bona fide Country girl!"
