The Rolling River Band comprises two twenty-something singer songwriters who share a mutual appreciation for great music. Inspired by years of listening to - Bob Dylan, Neil Young, Bruce Springsteen, Warren Zevon, Tom Waits, Leonard Cohen, Lou Reed, Nick Cave, Bonnie Prince Billy, Townes Van Zandt and Van Morrison (to name but a few) - we began writing and producing our own original compositions.
Such is Life is our second album. The follow up to Been A Long Time is a warm, folky collection of 18 original compositions dripping with Celtic soul. Lead vocals are shared between the two songwriters providing an added element of interest throughout.
The album is very much guitar based with an overall laid back vibe - sometimes sweet, sometimes dark but always very listenable.
