By The Rivers have firmly put themselves on the radar with their Pop, Soul & Reggae fusion sound with an Afrobeat twist.

The 6 piece band from Leicester, expertly avoid the constraint of one genre, whilst bringing to the table a distinctive sound wave of clean cut rhythms and hypnotic horns. Their self-titled debut album and 2015's highly anticipated follow-up single If They Don't Know, have been the catalyst in the bands growing success, providing airtime on BBC Radio 1 Xtra, 6 Music and recognition from BBC Introducing.

Extensive touring across the UK and Europe has allowed the band the chance to support greats names, including The Wailers, Jamie Cullum, Michael Kiwanuka, The Specials, Madness and Fun Lovin Criminals.

They are a band known for their electrifying live shows; being hailed One of the best live acts in the UK by BBC Introducing's Dean Jackson. Festivals including Glastonbury, Bestival, Shambala and Boomtown have been the setting for such performances, earning them a place among Foals, Jessie Ware and others as one of the Top 5 Future Rising Stars to be seen on Glastonbury Festival's Pyramid Stage, as chosen by the BBC.

‘What You See’ is a collection of five brand-new tracks from By The Rivers and hit shelves on Friday 18th November 2016 on the band’s own record label For The People. With a knack for sunny melodies and a blue-sky attitude genre, the Leicester six-piece have picked-up praise for their ability to twist Pop, Soul and Reggae and Afrobeat into a wonderfully eclectic and vibrant sound - and their latest offering finds them in as playful mood as ever.

These guys are going to be huge - Jamie Cullum
