Tennis | The Greeting Committee at Trees Dallas
Tennis is comprised of couple Alaina Moore and Patrick Riley. The Denver-based duo began writing music together as a way to document their time living at sea on a small forty-year-old sailboat. The result was their first release, 'Cape Dory,' which saw them quickly become one of the most alluring and blogged about bands of the new decade. Moore and Riley followed 'Cape Dory' with 'Young and Old,' which The New Yorker described as "winsome as it is ebullient," and debuted #1 on Billboard's Heatseeker Chart and #1 on CMJ Top 200, where it remained for three straight weeks. The album also debuted on Soundscan's "New Artist Chart" at #1 remaining there for nine consecutive weeks. In 2013 the 'Small Sound' EP debuted on Communion Music, followed by thousands of miles on the road, and a support tour with sister super-group Haim. In 2014, the duo released 'Ritual In Repeat.' Produced by Patrick Carney (The Black Keys), Jim Eno (Spoon) and Richard Swift (The Shins), this full length showcases a band in full control of their sound and craft. With well over 12 million streams and multiple television spots, the album has been received with open arms by loyal fans as well as new. Now they are on tour again precipitating the release of new material.
