By the Rivers

By the Rivers, an Original Reggae band, formed in the Spring of 2010 by Leicester friends since birth, Nile Barrow (21) and Jordan Birtles (18). After the demise of their highly successful Indie Pop band M48, the two got together to write songs in the style of music they had been listening to all their lives – Reggae. It was with a passion for the sound, culture and style of the music that they began to write songs with social comment, with positive messages as well as love songs and all things that affect the youth of today. The band consists of Nile Barrow (lead vocals/guitar), Jordan Birtles (drums/vocals), Sam Read (keys/guitar/vocals), Matt Willars (bass), Will Todd (tenor saxophone), and Leo May (trumpet).
