Since their formation in May 2015 the young Dortmund-based band has not only gained local attention. Apart from having played renowned hometown area festivals such as Juicy Beats Festival and Bochum Total in 2016, they were also invited to play at the c/o Pop Festival in Cologne, had their first airplays on radio stations such as 1Live and could convince the expert jury at the Popakademie Mannheim of their potential to participate in the well-known Bandpool program. Their songs are rooted in Americana Folk and often result in catchy pop arrangements rounded up by three-part vocal harmonies, inviting their listeners to dance and sing along. In their music they are singing about the things keeping us awake at night – a longing for a trip into the wild, a desire to escape the daily grind and today´s society, a need for a break from ill-fated love. With 40 shows in their first year, Walking on Rivers is an ambitious and promising young band ready to hit every stage they can get their feet on.
