Riot-Folk! is an artist-owned-and-run collective of radical songwriters and musicians who are making folk a threat again! We are:

Adhamh Roland - folked up jazzy riot-folk fury from st. louis!
Evan Greer - agressive folk from the front lines outta boston
Tom Frampton - throws down. insanely eloquent in-your-face folk-punk from CT.
Ryan Harvey - phenomenal songs of uprising, resistance and revolution originally from Baltimore
Brenna Sahatjian - ethereal poetical and political songs from San Fransisco
Ethan Miller & Kate Boverman - hard-hitting and earthy radical folk from Maine & Oregon
Mark Gunnery - old-timey and refreshingly clever anarchist folk from NYC

We seek to operate as a collective in a manner that is in-keeping with our analysis of the world and adhering to the principles of anti-oppression, resistance and liberation, mutual aid, direct democracy, community and struggle.
We support the struggles of all those who have been oppressed against their oppressors: oppressed genders, races, classes, the indigenous, and the earth itself.

We seek to make partnerships of mutual aid with other radical groups to help spread the music and the message of the movement. We don't just write about the movement, we're part of it!
Why this name?
Because now is not the time to mourn, it's the time to RIOT!!
Do you play live?
Our artists have played with the likes of Tom Morello, Anti-Flag, Against Me!, Billy Bragg, This Bike is a Pipebomb, Charlie King, David Rovics, and Leftover Crack.
We love playing at protests, benefits, house shows, infoshops, or wherever!
How, do you think, does the internet (or mp3) change the music industry?
It RULES! The internet is one of the most anarchistic inventions of the past few decades. It allows us all to share the music that we have! All Riot-Folk artists offer every song they've recorded for free download.
Would you sign a record contract with a major label?
We ARE a major record label. Major in the sense that we're going to overthrow the government and tear those other corporate record labels to pieces.
Your influences?
Our influences are from all over the place. Musically we range from jazzy to celtic, classical to punk. Politically we draw off the tradition of radical folk-music, labor songs, and other songs of struggle. Some good names to mention might be:

Phil Ochs, Ani DiFranco, Crass, Defiance Ohio, Peggy Seeger, Aus Rotten, Paul Simon, Tsunami Bomb, Bob Dylan, Woody Guthrie, The Who, The Clash, Ghost Mice, Pete Seeger, Johnny Cash, Charlie King, Pamela Means, David Rovics, Pat Humphries, Joe Hill, Against Me!, Jim Page, The Pinkerton Thugs, The Coup, Spearhead, Saul Williams, Billy Bragg, Joan Baez, Desert Rat, Jefferson Airplane, Erik Petersen, Tom Paxton, Country Joe McDonald, and so many more.

Riotfolk is playfully dangerous and lovingly militant. It is whispered threats and screamed words of love.
Favorite spot?
the earth before capitalism.
