When Rivers Meet – Saving Grace album review.

When Rivers Meet – Saving Grace album review. Who are When Rivers Meet? well if you live in the UK you will properly have heard the track “Did I Break The Law” amongst others played on Planet Rock. The good news is they have a new album coming out on Friday November 19th called “Saving Grace”. The even better news, we have been given an advanced copy to listen to, so we can give you guys the heads up.

The first thing to note is how well this band use silence, those few second gaps in a song that make you just anticipate the on coming riff. The album kicks off with a soulful blues number called “I Can’t Fight This Feeling” with amazing vocals from Grace Bond.

He’ll Drive You Crazy cranks it with with a killer power riff that packs a real punch. Next they slow it down with “Don’t Tell Me Goodbye” with a beautiful country style song with perfect vocals from Grace and Aaron. “Testify” kicks off with a rhythm that makes you just want to move and has an easy singalong chorus, when you go to the live shows, this will be the one you will be clapping along to.

“Talking In My Sleep” is a stripped down gorgeous song, just Grace and Aaron’s harmonies and an acoustic guitar. It’s hard to pick the next single from this album because you are spoiled for choice, every track stands out as outstanding. If you liked the last album or even one of the singles you are going to love this album.

Now it has to be said the best way to listen to music is live and you’re in luck because When Rivers Meet are out on tour next April with Troy Redfern as support, so get out there support this band and live music. Tickets are around £20 and that’s an amazing night out for next to nothing. Get tickets here

The band just finished touring the UK in October 2021 as King King‘s special guest, and received rave reviews and incredible fan support.

    Great review I saw WRM in Liverpool on the King King tour they were amazing, there live sound as a duo is awesome & as tight as a drum, I met them after their set such a lovely down to Earth couple, Saving Grace will I,m sure bring them more success & awards. ????????????????????

    I was in Liverpool too. Great gig. WRM are an amazing band. This particular gig was just Grace & Aaron Bond (who are When Rivers Meet). I believe that their own headline tour next year is with a full band but even with just the two of them, they are brilliant.

    Their new album “Saving Grace” is absolutely fabulous. Like their first album “We Fly Free”,…. “Saving Grace” was conceived through crowd funding. One of the perks of supporting the crowd funding was that you’d get a download link prior to its official release. I downloaded my copy yesterday (2nd November) and I haven’t stopped listening yet (well I had some sleep, obviously). I would struggle to pick a favourite track. Every track is brilliant and all have their own merit.

    It is often said that the 2nd album is the most difficult one. As far as I’m concerned, Grace & Aaron Bond have passed this test with flying colours.

    If you haven’t heard or seen them yet, you must.
