about

Rivers of England are a folk-rock band from the West of England, fronted by the considerable talents of singer-songwriter Rob Spalding. Their luscious debut album Of Trivial and Gargantuan was released in 2014:

"...a strong and accomplished debut that gently drifts its unhurried way into the psyche, and its tender, sweet sounds seem to have arrived perfectly timed for the summer festival season."
- Ian Fildes, Americana-UK

"...a fine and original example of song writing...the music of Rivers Of England unleashes class and spontaneity...full of beautiful compositions...few can boast such versatility and poetic coherence."
- Gianfranco Marmoro, Ondarock (Italy)

Throughout the new album Astrophysics Saved My Life, Spalding continues to engage the listener with his unique approach to songwriting. Themes range from the highly personal to the universal - the inner self to the outer cosmos - the emotional to the scientific.

It has been suggested that Rivers of England's music fits somewhere between that of Alasdair Roberts and John Martyn. Although rooted in folk, their music explores jazz, rock and blues influences which are wonderfully apparent in their recordings and suggestive of a band with an altogether much broader and original take on the genre.

The new album features a plethora of fine musicians including strings and the guest appearances of blues-rock legend and former Robert Plant guitarist Innes Sibun on three of the tracks.
