‘Original yet familiar sounding with occasional echoes of John Martyn and even Nick Drake, Rivers Of England’s lush string and Hammond/Rhodes based sound delivers foot-tapping ear candy aplenty with a spine-tingling powerful vocal on top. The surprises keep coming, not least, supporting The Fall, amusing hospital visits on tour and a regular soundtrack for operating theatre.’

The line up varies from just Rob on guitar and vocals to almost a small orchestra including double bass, keys, cello etc.! Most gigs have at least Rob and Bill on double bass. Check with Rob (07771768471) about number of players.

‘Rivers are in the ascendancy, recently supporting The Fall at Komedia in Bath, playing Colston Hall, touring Germany and releasing their 2nd EP - with an exciting debut album about to be released.’

‘…the stunning Meadow Sways is a piece that sounds like a lost timeless classic. It is so well poised in its writing, performance, arrangement, texture and blend that it is almost beyond criticism – its just a well made lovely thing.’ Davey Ray Moor (formerly of Cousteau).

‘Rob Spalding is a highly talented singer songwriter. Armed with an awe-inspiring voice capable of sending shivers down your spine, Rob has approached the folk acoustic scene with passion, soul and honesty.’ Sam Rowe (sound engineer, composer and producer).
