The Young River is a Dutch New Country band consisting of lead singer and guitarist Nick Jongejan, bassplayer Timmy Steenstra Toussaint and drummer Gijs de Waal, who all met at the Rock Academy. What makes this group so unique is that even though they all have different background stories, they all share one love for Country music. Great inspirations for the band are artists such as Keith Urban, Dan + Shay and All Time Low.
With a perfect combination of rock guitars, solid rhythms, polyphonic vocals, banjo and mandolin, the band creates a breath of fresh air within the Dutch music scene. Currently, they are working on their second EP which will be released in 2019.
