Modern Yesterday is a teen rock band from the Philadelphia/Delaware County area in Pennsylvania.  Founding members Riley (lead vocals) and Evan (lead guitarist) met in January, 2020 while playing in a garage band class.  They decided that they could run the band on their own, and added Lisa (bassist/backing vocals), Victor (drums) and Alex (guitarist/harmonica/basically any instrument on the planet), and the rest is history!


Behind The Band

Lead Singer

Riley has been singing since birth, and now at 13, fronts Modern Yesterday.  A true 90s kid born two decades too late, Riley is a huge fan of pop punk music, and hopes to be at the forefront of its comeback.  Riley also performs with several Philly-area theatre troupes at The Kimmel Center, Venice Island and Girard Academic Music Program.  If she wasn't so busy being a rock star, she would definitely be on Broadway, as theatre is her other passion in life, second only to Modern Yesterday!  Her backup future plan (just in case) is to attend Yale University and become a music/theatre critic or theatre director.
