Following their sell out gig in Norwich on Saturday, When Rivers Meet, (WRM) husband and wife duo have won three awards at a music awards event on Sunday night after having received nominations.

Telling the audience at the Adrian Flux Waterfront that they are keeping their fingers crossed, the sky is the limit for this dynamic duo.

The single coincides with their UK headline tour which continues at their sold-out concert at The Deaf Institute in Manchester on Thursday, May 19.

WRM's triumphant win at last night’s UK Blues Awards in London where they won three awards including Blues Band of the Year, Blues Vocalist of the Year (Grace Bond), and Blues Album of the Year (Saving Grace).

Their new single I can't Fight This Feeling is released Friday, May 20 from their current album Saving Grace.

Saving Grace follows WRM’s critically acclaimed debut album We Fly Free that was released in November 2020, and their previous two EPs, The Uprising, and Innocence of Youth.

The past two years have been a non-stop thrill-ride for WRM, who are comprised of Grace Bond (lead vocals, mandolin, violin) and Aaron Bond (guitar, vocals).

On their highly anticipated sophomore album Saving Grace, WRM have set out to produce a blues rock album with a more upbeat, punchy, and exciting sound.

Aaron said: "As well as being inspired by classic blues including John Lee Hooker and Muddy Waters, we also draw a lot of influence from classic rock bands that include Led Zeppelin, Bad Company, Cream, and Free.

"To emulate some of the feel or tone of these legendary blues pioneers and seminal rock bands is something that we strive to do, and hopefully people will hear that in our music and relate to it."

No doubt their fans, known as The Rapids will be soaking up the accolades.
