Any band knows how hard it is to make a career out of playing music - finding people who are all dedicated to achieving the same goal, getting the money together to record some songs, buying a van, getting gigs, and making enough money to pay for gas. As much as music is fun, it also takes a lot of hard work to make a living out of it and The Riverwinds aren't any stranger to the grind. Formed in the summer of 2007, The Riverwinds have recorded an EP and a Self-titled full length, been through line up changes, near death experience, traversed the continental US playing wherever they could get booked and doing anything to make a dollar to get a meal and to get to their next show. The band is dedicated to achieving their "American dream". The band is entering the studio to record their second full length and will be hopping back in their faithful van in 2011 traveling the country bringing their music to whoever will listen.
