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

When Rivers Meet – “Saving Grace” album review.
Saving Grace follows hot on the heels from the band’s critically acclaimed debut album We Fly Free that was released in November 2020, and their previous two EPs, The Uprising and Innocence of Youth. The past year has been a non-stop thrill-ride for WRM, who are comprised of Grace Bond (lead vocals, mandolin, violin) and Aaron Bond (guitar, vocals).
The band just finished touring the UK in October 2021 as King King‘s special guest, and received rave reviews and incredible fan support.
