River Roots are a vibrant mix of roots and alternative acoustic, with hints of folk and reggae beats, bringing diverse sounds and a playful uplifting vibe.
Conscious, mind opening music delivered from the heart.
Fusion of their soulful harmonies and positive energy illuminates the stage. They share their musical journey together while bringing people together. The music is majorly influenced by a nomadic lifestyle and connecting with nature, with a positive uplifting message.
This Nomadic Duo Matt and Gem tour internationally, performing at many UK festivals, including: Boomtown Fair, Beat-Herder, The Green Gathering, Boardmasters, Into The Wild and Buddhafield.
River Roots catapulted into the New Zealand scene early 2017 with a tour across the North and South Island, performing at Wanderlust, Luminate, NZ Spirit, LoveLake, Resonance Karamea and the International Yoga Festival.
BBCIntroducing – David White
“What voices River Roots have! ‘Destruction’s simple and frankly stunning. Nice job”
BBCIntroducing – Sarah Gosling
“What. A. Song. River Roots show us how it’s done with ‘Don’t Need Sleep’ – it’s infectious, it’s raw and just effortlessly cool”
Quest Festival
“We’ve had River Roots play twice now at our festival and they have been nothing short of wonderful. Inspired lyrics with a really joyful vibe – they get the crowd going and are often named as a favourite act from our punters.”<br>
