The Riverside is a band of friends from California, founded by husband and wife duo, Jacob and Lorien Jeanson,
The small city of Santa Barbara is the place that found them and, rather on a whim, unexpectedly started a life together on the road,
On that road, whether performing on a street corner, in a house show, or on a festival ground, the band endeavors to bring back the love of raw live performance. Circled around one large microphone the band relies on one another to find balance in the music. This intimate type of performance is one that has seemed to be drowned out in a world of loud music. With vocal harmony and their folk-rooted stringed instruments, the band paints landscapes and tells their stories.
Through finding the beauty that traveling the country together holds and speaking honestly about many highs and lows, The Riverside strives to be a family that grows together, and a band that helps listeners carry on down this life's winding river.
