Little River Band was formed in Melbourne, Australia in 1975. Originally a blend of musicians who had enjoyed success in other Australian rock bands their new focus was to get airplay on American radio. They achieved that goal with good songwriting, powerful vocals, and guitar harmonies. They immediately claimed their place as one of the great vocal bands of the 1970’s and the 1980’s. Between 1976 and 1983, chart success in America includes the following singles: “It’s a Long Way There,” “Help Is on Its Way,” “Happy Anniversary,” “Reminiscing,” “Lady,” “Cool Change,” “Lonesome Loser,” “The Night Owls,” “Take It Easy On Me,” “Man On Your Mind,” “We Two,” and “The Other Guy.”
Worldwide album, CD sales and digital downloads now top 30 million and the band has set a record for having had Top 10 hits for 6 consecutive years. They were the very first band to achieve that remarkable status. According to BMI, “Reminiscing,” has garnered rare status with over 5 million airplays on America radio with “Lady,” being close behind with over 4 million airplays.
LRB was rightfully inducted into the Australian Recording Industry Association (ARIA) Hall of Fame at the 18th Annual ARIA Music Awards of 2004. The current lineup brings new energy and arrangements to the classic hits, making new memories for the audience out of each live performance as proven by the fact that the band just won Artist of the Year at the Casino Awards in Vegas in the fall of 2015. The band continues to enjoy watching the audience as they are swept up by the show’s vitality and the volume of hits from LRB’s history and watching them fall in love with the songs all over again.
Little River Band’s current CD is “Cuts Like a Diamond,” which was released on Frontiers Records in early 2014. “What If You’re Wrong,” went to #1 and stayed there for 3 weeks says Jim Shoe of CLASSX Radio with “Forever You, Forever Me,” and “You Dream, I’ll Drive,” both climbing into the stations TOP 3. The band is currently getting ready to go into the studio to record a new album and will do so between tour dates. With over 125 dates being scheduled for their 2016 tour, they will have to squeeze out time to get it done.
