Marshall Wildman
River’s adventurous blend of driving rock, dream pop and roots influences strives for the metaphysical. Hailing from the open skies and minds of Victoria, British Columbia, the Canadian trio has gone from strength to strength with its gigs and EP releases as it builds a global audience. Its just-released first full-length album, Light Up to Burn Out, is a testament to its musical vitality. The self-produced epic spans 18 songs, cataloging the emotive dissonance between man's best efforts to prevail against conquest.

River is comprised of multi-instrumentalists Sam Weber, Marshall Wildman, and Evan Hillier, all of whom share bass, drums, guitar, piano, and synth duties. Together, they command the intellectual post punk-edness of bands like Joy Division, the raw simplicity of early John Hiatt and Bruce Springsteen, while maintaining the gentle emotive grip of acts like Bon Iver.
