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.

The music is majorly influenced by a nomadic lifestyle and connecting with nature, with a positive uplifting message.

Matt originally from Leeds UK, kicked off the music whilst they were travelling Australia.

Inspired by the beautiful surroundings and good vibes, his flow of creative writing was ignited.

In 2015, the music naturally became a co-creation as vocalist Gem originally from Manchester UK, blended into the mix, evolving the music into River Roots. They gather inspiration from the places they go and people they meet on their journeys.

River Roots take the audience on a journey through slow heart openers, transitioning the tempo without you realising, suddenly your feet are stomping to a funky upbeat feel good song. A full spectrum of music is delivered with each concert, adjusted to what the collective mind of the space is asking for.

The theme throughout is love, love for life, love for each other and enjoying every minute of life.
The chemistry between the free spirited duo is real, the two have been together for 13 years, and their authentic selves shine through their performance.

River Roots are self taught, self managed, independent musicians, and hope to spread the message to people to follow their dreams. Do what you love and build your life around it.

“Our mission is to spark inspiration and ignite passion in people to transform their reality.
Music is powerful and true magic, we want to help spread it to the world.”
