Critically acclaimed British blues/rock duo When Rivers Meet release their third single “Walking On The Wire” from their debut album, ‘We Fly Free’ and follows hot on the heels of their previous singles “Battleground” and “Did I Break The Law.”
The new single is accompanied by a music video filmed in the Essex countryside utilizing stunning aerial drone footage.
When Rivers Meet is comprised of husband and wife, Grace and Aaron Bond. Grace sings lead vocal on most of When Rivers Meet’s hit album, We Fly Free, showcasing her impressive range, while adding distinctive slide resonator mandolin and fiddle. Aaron plays guitar and adds rich vocals.
They drop a modern take on heavier blues/rock with the track “Walking On The Wire.” The dual vocal parts fly on top of a crunching slide guitar pocket on resonator mandolin that’s backed by thumping drums and bass. The lyrics have a relevant vibe and both voices are more than capable of delivering their message. The video adds color and life to an already-mighty tune and suits the track’s Rust Belt attitude. This is strong, 21st Century blues/rock. Need a new favorite song? Here it is.
The duo made a concerted effort to keep to a genuine, gritty sound using authentic techniques, including tube tape echo and reverb chambers, which have created a live sound that keeps a truly vintage vibe that not only has energy but is also a true representation of the ever evolving sound this duo produces.
“We love this song, and we know you will be joining us on the chorus. Sing it loud,” says Grace about “Walking On The Wire.” “Blending and interweaving our vocals around different harmonies is something we love to do, and we get to rock out at the same time. What could be more fun?”

In November 2020, the band released their debut album “We Fly Free,” which attracted strong media support and popular demand from their growing fanbase, including rave reviews from Classic Rock, Blues Matters, Guitarist, Maverick, Blues in Britain, Fireworks, Vive Le Rock, Powerplay, and R’N’R.
Classic Rock Magazine said this about the debut album, “When Rivers Meet are heavy enough to get your attention and quirky enough to hold it, with songs that kick at you, but leave a boot-print on your heart.”
Prior to the debut album, the duo released two EPs “The Uprising” and “Innocence of Youth” which served as an effective precursor for the fans before the highly anticipated arrival of the debut album.
Over the past twelve months, the band has built up loyal fan engagement on their socials due to their weekly “Rockin’ The Lockdown” live stream concerts performed from their home. Airing Saturdays at 8pm, the live streams proved so popular, the duo are now performing twice weekly by adding an acoustic Wednesday morning show at 10am.
When Rivers Meet were nominated in four categories at the UK Blues Awards including “Emerging Blues Artist of the Year”, “Blues Band of the Year”, “Blues Album of the Year”, and “Most Inspirational Online Performance of the Year”.
