Classical Blues-Rock

The British couple Bond (No kidding!) has nothing to do with the secret service MI6, but have dedicated themselves to music together. What could be better? And yes… You can still inspire with classic old-school blues-rock! „Back To The Roots“ is the motto here and I would like to join that. WHEN RIVERS MEET (Facebook ) have released their album „We Fly Free“ on 20.11.2020 via One Road Records. Let’s have a closer look…


until the last note the two play their numbers. These are earthy, honest rock numbers, which sparkle with passion and are soaked with heart blood. The album is framed by two rousing songs, the opener „Did I Break The Law“

and the finisher „We Fly Free“. The songs tear away snotty and dirty and make my blood boil. Here it goes energetically to the point. There are still some of these spirited songs on the record, for example „Bound For Nowhere“. The charming voice of Grace crowns the instrumental part and makes the music a really hot affair. But also Aaron doesn’t need to hide with his voice and so you can experience both in a harmonic duet.

With casual charm

and joyful catchiness the whole album shines. You can tell in every moment of the songs that Grace and Aaron approach the matter with uncanny passion and light-heartedness and truly live and embody their music. This is music with soul and feeling, which also likes to strike calm tones like for example “ I’d Fallen“, which creates a rather thoughtful melancholic mood. It seems as if they write their songs out of certain situations or moods, just songs from real life with honest feelings. It is nothing pompous and aloof, but pure music of the old days, reduced to the most necessary. The sound on the album comes across as if the two of them were playing the songs directly in front of you. It actually has a certain live atmosphere.

Apropos live

In times of lockdown, the two have transformed their home parlor into a cute little concert stage where they regularly give live stream concerts. This intimate personal atmosphere fits perfectly to the musical style of the two. This is a very likeable, full-blooded musician couple, who you just love to listen and watch. Nobody switches off voluntarily. Watch the following video! But take your time, because the video takes an hour. Among other things, songs from the current album are played, such as „Did I Break The Law“ (from minute 17:50) or „Kissing The Sky“ (from minute 29:00). Of course the sound is not as powerful and voluminous as on the album, but that goes without saying. By the way, there is also a cool cover version of the DEPECHE MODE song „Personal Jesus“, which you surely have never heard before. So just chill a few beers and enjoy….


WHEN RIVERS MEET rock the world with a soulful authentic sound, soaked with honest blues and rock, where feeling resonates in every note. It is magnificent entertainment that is offered here. „We Fly Free“ must definitely be in your collection. You can hardly find something like that anymore. I would invite them to the next cosy pub and could listen to them for hours. Simply intoxicating.

Seit meiner Kindheit höre ich gerne Rockmusik. Es hat mit Gary Moore, Scorpions, Billy Idol, Bon Jovi, Dire Straits, AC/DC usw. angefangen, also quasi mit den Großen der 80'er und 90'er Jahre. Mit zunehmendem Alter ging der Musikgeschmack immer mehr auch in die härtere Richtung. So finden sich mittlerweile auch viele Core-Platten, so wie Black-und Death-Metal Kracher in meiner Sammlung. Daher bin ich in fast allen Bereichen des Rock und Metal unterwegs. Eine besondere Vorliebe habe ich für den Underground entwickelt, wo es richtig brennt und es viele hochklassige Bands gibt, die den Großen der Branche in nichts nachstehen, ganz im Gegenteil. In diesen Sinne: Stay tough, stay heavy!
