Rivenside
I Thirst For You EP

Street Date: 2008
Style: Praise & Worship
Artist Website: Mypace.com


Rivenside is a worship band from the musical hotbed located in the greater Houston area. Anchored by co-writers Jordan Dunn and Brandon Rich, the band has released this EP in 2008 to give people a taste of what Rivenside has to offer before returning to the studio to put together a full record. These four songs are a start, but there will need to be great strides made before I get excited about the next release. Worship records are a tricky business... based on what we hear so far, this doesn't appear to be a band that is bound for a deal with SixSteps or Integrity. Rivenside instead is more a band that could be leading meaningful worship services at their church, bringing people in their community closer to God with original worship instead of leaning on the Tomlin/Baloche/Hillsong songlist that most other churches are using. That is not bad thing to aspire to, though, is it?
