When Rivers Meet

Combining powerful and heartfelt vocals with thundering guitar riffs, Essex-based Rock band When Rivers Meet offers originality with both talent and authentic personalities. Grace Bond leads with her incredible vocals, as well as bringing raunched-up mandolin and violin instrumentals. Her husband Aaron Bond commands attention with his imaginative guitar and cigar box playing and complements with compelling vocal harmonies… a winning formula.

Since releasing their first EP in 2019, the duo released a second EP and two critically acclaimed studio albums: We Fly Free (2020), which reached #1 in the Blues Album Charts on iTunes, and Saving Grace (2021), which charted #2 UK Official Jazz & Blues Albums Chart, #5 UK Official Album Downloads Chart, and #6 UK Official Independent Albums Chart Top 50. Their third studio album goes on pre-order in March and will be released this summer.

When Rivers Meet were the first band to win four awards at the UK Blues Awards 2021 and another three awards in 2022, including Blues Band of the Year on both occasions. They were nominated again this year and won Blues Band of the Year inducting them into the UK Blues Federation Hall Of Fame. In 2021 WRM were voted Best New Band at Planet Rock’s The Rocks Awards, and in 2022 won the Blues Power Award and Album of the Year (Saving Grace).

When Rivers Meet have developed a powerful live reputation and with their first headline tour last year, which they played to capacity crowds across the country. This is set to continue into 2023 with the Breaker of Chains UK Headline Tour and festival performances such as Steelhouse and Joe Bonamassa’s Keeping the Blues Alive at Sea Mediterranean Cruise.
