"Rock n' Roll belongs on top" is the moral core in which River Lynch & The Spiritmakers live by. River states, "Every night, we set out to wake the spirits of the past, create music for the future and remind people of the power of rock n' roll music".

​After withdrawing from college, singer-songwriter River Lynch got to work on his career as a solo act. Playing shows in and around upstate New York for roughly 3 years. "Not everyone can be a songwriter" states River, "You must be blessed with the ability to write and disciplined enough to see it through". After impressing audiences with his songwriting and powerful acoustic performances, River decided it was finally time to go electric. In 2015, he joined together with some local Rochesterian friends that shared the same energetic love for Rock n' Roll.

Introducing...River Lynch & The Spiritmakers. Tim Leverett, drums, and Schuyler Skuse, bass, brought the rhythm section that would drive River's original songs to their explosive potential.​ The band have found a timeless sound that incorporates their vintage influences while remaining fresh for the modern world. With the help of Doug Zogby, guitar/audio engineer, the songs were injected with vibrancy and brought to life. A tasteful mix of the rock & roll vibes of Tom Petty, with a modern edge comparable at times, to the sounds of Jack White and the Alabama Shakes. Wonderfully rich, bluesy, hook filled rock n' roll. The attention of even the most casual listener can be sparked by the refreshing truth that River's lyrics possess.

Following the release of River Lynch's first official EP, There Goes The Heart, the band have been winning over audiences in their hometown of Rochester NY as well as in NYC and Canada. One highlight for the band was in 2016 on River's birthday (Oct. 13th) when they performed at the acclaimed music venue Rockwood Music Hall. Another great highlight took place in September 2017, when the band played in Canada for a live streamed performance at Sessions On The River. A buzz continues to build as they grow a dedicated following at home and abroad. The band have been continuing to expand their exposure nationally and worldwide with song placements on radio stations, podcasts and music blogs.

In October 2016, River's original song "All This Time" was named "Best Song Of The Month" by SongwriterUniverse.com. In October of 2017, the band released the first of four new singles with their song and video for "Straight Through".

"Rock n' Roll music became a large part of my identity at a very young age" River states. "The radio volume went up, the school grades went down. I feel that new Rock n' Roll does not currently receive the attention it deserves. We aim to remind those that forgot and introduce those that have not yet experienced, just how powerful this music can be. So I grab my guitar, rally the band and we head for the stage".
