Band of the Week: Broken Rivers

Americana quintet featured on shmuFM

This week on shmuFM, we're delighted to feature Broken Rivers! You can hear them live on the Band of the Week Show on Monday the 26th of October from 8-10pm. You'll hear their latest tracks, their influences, and you'll get to know all things Broken Rivers.

A 5-piece Americana band from Aberdeen, Broken Rivers draw inspiration from all types of music from alternative to folk, with male and female harmonies, catchy melodies and dark lyrics. 

As a fairly new band, Broken Rivers are starting to make noise among the scene with people starting to take notice. They capture a room with their Folk/Americana sound that you can’t tire of listening to, and walk away with it stuck in your head wanting more.

They are looking to start gigging around the country and be part of some festivals next year, so watch this space! You can hear more by them by visiting their Soundcloud.

If you like what you hear, you can request any of Broken Rivers' tracks on any of our live shows by getting in contact with the studio on 01224 483413, by texting 60300 (type SHMU, leave a space and then your message) or by emailing

The Band Of The Week Show is repeated every Friday at midnight until 2am on 99.8FM, and you can listen to the show here on our website using the live stream or Listen Again feature.
