Award-winning rock duo, When Rivers Meet, comprised of husband-and-wife Aaron and Grace Bond, are the first independent UK blues act to have an album in the Top 10 of the Official UK Album Chart with their third studio album “Aces Are High.”
The album, which has charted at number 9 in the Official UK Album Chart, is the Essex-based band’s first Top 10 album. “We are delighted with the support that we have had from our dedicated fans,” says When Rivers Meet‘s vocalist, mandolin and violin player, Grace Bond.
“Having a Top 10 album means the world to us,” says WRM‘s guitarist, Aaron Bond. “We can’t wait to perform the new songs when we tour the UK in April and May 2024.” The duo will take the “Aces Are High” album on the road when they perform eight concerts in the UK from April 27th until May 11th. Tickets are available HERE.
“Aaron and I can’t wait to get back on the road in 2024 to tour the “Aces Are High” album,” says Grace. The new songs are powerful and intense. They represent where we are right now as both writers and performers. It’s an exciting journey and we look forward to sharing the ride with our dedicated fans.”
Since their formation in 2019, When Rivers Meet has been quick to prove themselves one of the most exciting names in British blues rock. Blending rock, blues, Americana, and folk in a distinctly unique manner, they’ve received many awards and accolades.
WRM was the first band to win four awards at the UK Blues Awards 2021 and another three awards in 2022, including Blues Band of The Year on both occasions. In 2023, WRM won Blues Band of The Year, making them the only band to win this category three years in a row, and the only band to be inducted into the UK Blues Awards Hall of Fame for this category.
