The Uprising EP: WHEN RIVERS MEET

This is a duo I’ve wanted to see play for a long time. That chance came my way last month and I was not disappointed.

Grace and Aaron produced one of the best live blues sounds I have heard recently. ‘Kill For Your Love’ is my favourite of the four offerings on this EP for no other reason than in a festival field it stopped me in my tracks and I went “Wow”.

For a duo, they create a sound above and beyond what a mandolin, guitar and kick drum should be able to create on their own. Aaron’s effortless guitar work is the perfect backdrop for Grace’s powerful, sultry voice and fiddle playing.

This is a band where the whole is far greater than the sum of the parts. Oh dear, I may be turning into a WRM groupie!
