Since bursting on to the UK Blues scene with their debut record ‘The Uprising EP’ in April 2019 followed by their second EP ‘Innocence Of Youth’ in May 2020, Grace and Aaron have been going from strength to strength. The British husband and wife duo have an ever-growing online fan base and have gained the attention of Cerys Matthews’ The Blues Show on BBC Radio 2.

Their unique harmonic vocal-led approach to song writing, dirty electric guitar, slide resonator mandolin and fiddle create a unique distinctive and contemporary blues rock sound that echoes 1970s classic rock with hints of the 1930s blues that inspire them. Before lockdown, the duo toured the UK in their self-converted VW camper with an impressive tour schedule. Since the lockdown, the duo live stream on Facebook every Saturday at 8pm BST for their ‘Rock The Lockdown’ series attracting hundreds of thousands of views on a weekly basis. Fan engagement is second to none, while WRM fans continue to organically multiply on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter.

On November 20th, 2020, the duo released their long-awaited debut album ‘We Fly Free’, to critical acclaim from the UK radio and rock music magazine media. Chris Kimsey, the Rolling Stones record producer praised the album saying that “The performances are exemplary, the sound is magnificent, the songs are gorgeous. I love the drama. I love everything.” In October, WRM’s first single from the album, ‘Battleground’, was added to the main playlist on the UK’s leading classic rock radio station Planet Rock. In late November, the band followed up with a second single, ‘Did I Break The Law’, that was played on BBC Radio 2’s The Rock Show with Johnnie Walker. The single was also played on Planet Rock throughout December 2020 and into January 2021.

The UK rock music press were unanimous by praising ‘We Fly Free’ as one of the most striking, refreshing, and impressive debut blues rock albums of 2020. Classic Rock said of the band’s debut, “Wheel-spinning out of Dodge like Bonnie and
Clyde on opener ‘Did I Break The Law’, Grace and Aaron Bond prove capable getaway drivers on a debut album that unfolds like a road movie,” while Blues in Britain described it as “A stunning album of pure alchemy.” Vive Le Rock said that ‘We Fly Free’ was “urban blues with the brakes off,” and gave the album with a 9/10 rating, while Guitarist Magazine described at album as “electrifying, it’s a great debut.” Fireworks Magazine praised it as “One of the best blues
rock albums of the year.”

On October 26th , ‘Battleground’ won “Tracks of the Week” on Classic Rock’s Louder Sound website, who described it as “Primal old-school blues (more John Lee Hooker than Stevie Ray Vaughan) – dressed up in biker leathers and wreathed in arthouse smoke.” November 2020 saw two more accolades when WRM graced the magazine covers of Blues Matters and Blues in Britain featuring stylish and provocative photographs taken by one of the UK’s leading rock photographers, Rob Blackham. Blues Rock Review voted ‘We Fly Free’ #9 in their Top 20 Albums of 2020 poll. The album was also made Rock and Blues Muse’s “Top 20 Blues, Rock and Roots Albums of 2020,” alongside Joe Bonamassa, Larkin Poe, Walter Trout, Shemekia Copeland, The Allman Betts Band, Marcus King, Kirk Fletcher, Savoy Brown, Bernard Allison, and King King. When Rivers Meet’s debut album cemented their name and signified a bold move in their trajectory that singled them out as innovative risk takers, willing to take their influences, and putting their own stamp over it.

After two years of hard work, everything came together. The WRM buzz was in full swing. Guitarist Magazine, was quick to catch on to this when he reviewed the debut album by saying, “It’s a tough job to make a new blues-based record that really arrests the listener’s attention, however, WRM’s sound is built of simple but powerful elements, handled with taste but delivered from the gut.” The music magazine reviews continued to pour in. HRH Magazine proclaimed, “For blues lovers, ‘We Fly Free’ is a purist’s paradise,” while Powerplay Magazine said, “They may be a duo, but they make a big noise.” Maverick Magazine said, “This is the start of what should be a hugely successful career, while RNR Magazine focussed on the album’s production standards by saying, “The use of authentic techniques, including tube tape echoes and reverbs, adds to the overall production, reproducing a splendid live, vintage sound that reinforces the appeal.”

When Rivers Meet released their third single ‘Walking On The Wire’ on 26 th February 2021. The single had an exclusive 24-hour premiere on PlanetRock.com on Thursday 25th February. The music video was filmed in North Essex accompanied with stunning aerial footage and cinematography courtesy of a drone. When Rivers Meet were recently nominated in four categories at the UK Blues Awardsincluding “Emerging Blues Artist of the Year”, “Blues Band of the Year”, “Blues Album of the Year”, and “Most Inspirational Online Performance of the Year”. Winners will be announced in May 2021. In October 2021, When Rivers Meet will be very special guests on King King’s 8-date October UK tour. In April 2022, the band will embark on their first nationwide headline UK tour.

In the summer of 1984 singer Steve Overland and his brother, guitarist Chris (both formerly of Wildlife) teamed up with drummer Pete Jupp (ex Wildlife and Samson) and bassist Merv Goldsworthy (ex Diamond Head and Samson) to form FM. Joined by the keyboard talents of Didge Digital, by December that year they had secured a recording contract with CBS/Portrait and the band headed to Germany for a run of dates with Meat Loaf.

Further tours with Tina Turner, Foreigner and Gary Moore built up the momentum. On 8 September 1986 FM released their debut album INDISCREET (featuring the hugely popular single "Frozen Heart") to great critical acclaim and the year ended on a high with FM supporting the white-hot Bon Jovi on their "Slippery When Wet" tour. For the next nine years FM consolidated their position at the forefront of British melodic rock, touring extensively as headliners and also joining bands such as Status Quo and Whitesnake on tours to promote releases such as 1989's TOUGH IT OUT album; TAKIN' IT TO THE STREETS released in 1991 (with Andy Barnett on guitar replacing the now-departed Chris Overland); APHRODISIAC in 1992 and what was to be their 'final' album, 1995's DEAD MAN'S SHOES with new recruit Jem Davis (Tobruk, UFO) on keyboards.

In 2007 - after a 12 year sabbatical - FM were persuaded to return to the stage for a 'one-off' headline performance at a sold-out Firefest IV at Nottingham Rock City. The rapturous reception from the fans at Firefest led to FM quickly making the decision to record a new album and following a return to Firefest in 2009, in March 2010 FM released their much-anticipated sixth studio album METROPOLIS with Jim Kirkpatrick replacing Andy Barnett on lead guitar.

FM haven't stopped since… Headline tours both in the UK and overseas, Special Guest slots touring with Foreigner, Journey, Thin Lizzy, Heart, Saxon and Skid Row; festival appearances including Download, Planet Rockstock, Sweden Rock, Graspop, Steelhouse Festival, Frontiers Rock Festival, Hard Rock Hell and Ramblin' Man Fair, and in 2018 their first-ever live show in the US at Melodic Rock Fest 5.

When not touring, FM have been busy in the studio and since their 2010 'comeback' album they have released 2013's double helping of ROCKVILLE and ROCKVILLE II; HEROES AND VILLAINS in 2015 and ATOMIC GENERATION in 2018 along with
INDISCREET 30 - a new 2016 recording of FM's classic debut album to celebrate the 30th anniversary of its release - and THE ITALIAN JOB live DVD/CD.

2020 brings FM's first Australian tour in March followed by the release of the band's twelfth studio album SYNCHRONIZED on 10 April via Frontiers Music S.r.l. and UK tour dates.

Although Crane has passed, Bolton & French from the Rooster's peak 70's line up have - with Crane's widow - Jean's blessing reformed the band and taken to the road.

The band features original members Steve Bolton (Guitar) & Pete French (Vocals)Pete French joined Atomic Rooster for their third LP In Hearing of Atomic Rooster (1971) whilst Steve Bolton joined the tour for the 3rd LP and appeared on the 4th LP Made in England (1972).They are joined Adrian Gautrey (organ), Paul Everett (drums) & Shug Millidge (bass)
