The Evolution of Old Man River & His Band

Written by Daniel Clarke on November 5, 2009

This November – coinciding with Triple J’s Aus Music Week – OLD MAN RIVER & his band will play three special shows in Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane, to celebrate the recent completion of his sophomore album, simply and powerfully titled ‘Trust’.

After some time away from the Australian live scene OLD MAN RIVER recently made surprise appearances, with a killer show and new 5-piece band, at the Big Sound (Brisbane) and One Movement (Perth) music industry festivals. These events offered a glimpse of the exciting new OLD MAN RIVER material – an absorbing blend of sitars, electric guitars, tabla’s and a natural evolution of the ‘east meets west’ themes that made ‘Good Morning’ such an outstanding debut album.
