Unsigned Band Auditions '23: River Knight - Folk - Southampton, UK | SRL

River Knight

Southampton, UK

Current Score: ★★★☆☆ ☆☆


Formed in 2017, Darren Knight was writing songs as a form of therapy after the tragic passing of his wife and Stone River was there to support him. They continued writing, so they decided to call themselves a band and River Knight was born. The guys recorded the first song they wrote and released Heaven's Door through Bandcamp. The fellas were continually writing and had regular gigs in London, Portsmouth and Southampton with a view to moving further afield, but then Covid happened. Rather than sit back and wait they recorded their debut album "Grow" remotely throughout lockdown, and when it was over they got together and invited a few friends to play on a couple of tracks to celebrate.

With various influences from multiple decades and genres, River Knight create music that defies labels. Each of the songs has it's own individuality, all the while retaining the essence of what River Knight are.

2 blokes, 1 guitar. 2 voices, 6 strings. (And a little bit extra on the album.)
