Award-winning blues rock duo When Rivers Meet have announced an intimate show on September 27th at O2 Academy2 Islington, in celebration of their third and highly anticipated studio album ‘Aces Are High’, out September 8th.
Fresh off their second UK headline tour, the band have already released two singles from the album, Play My Game and Perfect Stranger.
Lead singer, mandolin and violin player, Grace Bond is passionate about the recent WRM single Perfect Stranger and says, “We wanted to write a song about our relationship and how we first met. Our relationship is intense and creative. We wanted to write a song that reflects that tension throughout.” Watch the music video for Perfect Stranger HERE.
The previous single, Play My Game, is a groove-laden, driving blues track with rich riffs and searing vocals. Watch the video for Play My Game HERE.
Since their formation in 2019, the husband-and-wife duo Grace Bond (vocals, mandolin, violin) and Aaron Bond (vocals, guitar) have been quick to prove themselves one of the most exciting names in British blues rock. Blending Americana, folk, blues, and rock in a distinctly unique manner, they have been showered with many awards and accolades.
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. In 2023, WRM won Blues Band Of The Year, making them the only band to win this category three years in a row, and the only band to be inducted into the UK Blues Awards Hall Of Fame for this category.
