Riiver Brukes’ unusual gritty and soulful voice brings a powerful edge to some amazing hook laden songs, and is influenced by a broad spectrum of genres and artists, but especially her passion for jazz and blues. Rising through a foundation built from various bands including pop band Cicero (#11 European Dance Charts), Edinburgh’s very own Riiver Brukes releases her first solo album, ‘Reformed Soul’ (co-written and produced by Joe Segreti: Bruno Pelletier, Mooch): An album that oozes nothing less than the attitude, character and soul of this Scottish Lassie.

When Tomorrow Comes
‘This song was inspired by an elderly couple walking through my local village. They were desperately trying to hold each other's hand as the old woman struggled to push the frail man in his wheelchair. Clearly unable or unwilling to lose sight of each other - even for a moment. It was perhaps the most beautiful and yet, the most sad thing to witness: Uncertainty, love, vulnerability and precious time - all rolled into a few brief seconds. I knew that they didn’t have much time left together… but then again, I wondered what rich history they had shared…’
Break the Chains
Break the Chains is a song about equality and rights for all human beings. We should never lose sight of that. The color of a person’s skin is irrelevant as is their place of origin, their personal beliefs, or anything else. What really matters is what is in their heart and their actions toward others. And that is why we must break the chains that divide us.
It Ain't Right
'It Ain't Right' is a song about being unappreciated & disrespected. The story of a woman who spends all her time and energy taking care of others who neither appreciate or recognize her! She's tired of being taken for granted and decides some changes are in order. Although she loves them, she's had enough and its time to shape up or she's gone!! Quite right Lady!!
