John Riven lives in Toronto where he runs a successful private acting studio. He lived and trained in New York for ten years before moving back to Canada. One of his hobbies is writing and recording music and he managed to keep it pretty much to himself for a number of years. A song of his, "one more time" got licensed for the film "the hit list" in 2011. John began to get tracked down by fans around the world who'd seen the film and wanted to buy a cd. These fans were the catalyst in getting John to put down his cherished gibson j45 for an hour or so and choose 12 of his recordings and release the cd "isolated roads". On a personal note, John will always be very uncomfortable speaking of himself in the third person.
