"Life's too short baby take a shot" words River Lynch wrote, sings and lives by.
For River, the hardest questions thrown at him are the most common ones; "What kind of music do you play?" "Who do you sound like?" With an innovative rock and roll sound, comprised of time-honored undertones, you can't quite put your finger on from when or whom the inspiration comes from.
Singer-song writer River Lynch got his name out there as a solo act, playing shows in and around upstate New York for the last several years. In 2015, he found some local Rochesterians that shared the love of rock & roll and possessed the skill to create it themselves. Tim Leverett, drums, and Schuyler Skuse, bass, brought the rhythm section that would drive River's original songs to their full potential.
River has found a timeless sound that incorporates his vintage influences while remaining fresh for the modern world. With the help of Doug Zogby, guitar/audio engineer, the songs were injected with vibrancy and brought to life. A tasteful mix of the rock & roll vibes of Tom Petty, with the modern edge comparable at times, to the sounds of Jack White. His lyrics can be taken casually or interpreted on a more personal level for those that are willing to go in a little deeper.
Following the release of River Lynch's first official EP album entitled There Goes The Heart, River plans to play shows around the Rochester area while working to build a following that will stay with him as he expands his reach nationally and internationally.
"I've been dreaming of the day that my songs are performed with a true rock & roll band. That day has finally come. Life just became much louder" says River Lynch.
