Tommy Rivers coherently blends past and present elements into his vision of Rock and Roll. Every young Rock and Roll band should have a look at how it's supposed to be done. He plays with energy and brilliance that spark the Everly Brothers, early Rolling Stones and 70's rockers like Dwight Twilly and Tom Verlaine. Tommy Rivers is one of those artists who can utilize all the core elements of Rock and Roll at his disposal. He has consistently written indelible material and conveyed it with panache. He sings sweetly and with passion, in the grand tradition of cigarette rough vocalists like Ian Hunter, Rod Stewart and Paul Westerberg.
It's not the next new thing, but those things never really last do they? Unlike Tommy Rivers.
