    When a band tours in Australia, it must be prepared to travel far and wide. King River Rising has followed the sun all over OZ - from Outback pubs, starlit bush festivals and gigs by the beach. King River Rising’s pumping rhythm section and wailing soloists seamlessly blend Reggae and Rock, leaving fans yearning for more.

    This a third trip to Tumbarumba after they wowed the special Sunday crowd a year ago on the lawns of Nest then played Tumbafest main stage 2019.

    The band has been compared to the Black Seeds, Fat Freddy’s Drop and Kingfisha. Members have spent the past three years honing their craft in Melbourne, Australia’s musical capital, punctuated by hectic visits and sell-out shows all over the country – from Queensland in the north to Tasmania in the south, including Byron Bay, the Sunshine Coast, Adelaide and the Blue Mountains.

    Mixed by legendary Australian producer, sound engineer and musician Ian Pritchett of Noisegate Studios, it presents a truly exciting picture of the group’s musical trajectory and showcases chemistry that has grown through the highs and lows of touring, writing and gigging.

    Pritchett has worked with the likes of The Beautiful Girls, Angus & Julia Stone, COG; and more recently Lyall Moloney, Boo Seeka and Bootleg Rascal.With a hunger to be pivotal players in Australia’s Reggae scene and hardened by two years on the road, King River Rising is a band to watch. Although the genre of Reggae isn’t as embraced by Australians as much as their neighbors, KRR are determined to bring it to the masses by pushing their own personal limits.
