CHARLOTTE, N.C. - Oct. 7, 2014 - PRLog -- Defined by their energetic, driving, mainstream brand of music, flavored with a fresh rock and pop/punk mixture, Rivers Monroe have captured the attention of the music industry and hundreds of thousands of listeners along the East Coast and beyond.

With the release of their highly anticipated self-titled album, produced by six-time Grammy-winning producer Glenn Barratt of MorningStar Studios, the band has raised the bar with their collection of hook-driven and inspiring songs. Anchored by the infectious vocal-driven singles “Moments” and “Meteors,” which echo the best of Maroon 5, Train, Matchbox Twenty and OneRepublic, Rivers Monroe is stacked from beginning to end with anthems for readymade for airplay. Industry tastemakers have taken note with coverage by AXS, PupFresh, Vents Magazine, Fireworks Magazine, Pop Punk World, The Hofstra Chronicle, Philadelphia Weekly and Rock On Philly which proudly premiered the band’s playful lyric video for “Girls In The Front Row."

Led by keyboardist/vocalist Mat Rivers, and long-time friend and lead-singer Mike Monroe, the two singer/songwriters teamed up with bassist Kirby San, drummer Kevin Sitaras and a guitarist named Doc to fill out their infectious wall of sound. Armed with catchy hooks, passionate lyrics and energized performances, the band has shared the stage with many Grammy-winning and multi-platinum selling artists, opening for Paramore, All Time Low, Fun., Incubus, Phoenix, The Wonder Years, Passion Pit, New Found Glory, twenty | one | pilots, Jennifer Paige, Silversun Pickups and AllStar Weekend. In turn, these high-profile slots have helped secure performances at NASCAR and NHRA events and, in turn, resulting sponsorships from Coca-Cola, Sunoco, Cerwin-Vega, and Motel 6. Capitalizing on these opportunities, with a mindful eye towards championing causes they believe in, the quintet will lend their collective voice to support National Breast Cancer Awareness Month with a special appearance at the Nationwide Series event “Drive For The Cure,” presented by Blue Cross and Blue Shield of North Carolina. Taking place Friday, October 10 at Charlotte Motor Speedway, the day-long event is aimed at raising awareness of breast cancer prevention, detection and treatment.
