Rivershine is a band as unique as its name. Members Bill Green (lead singer), Adam Cave (bassist), Kyle Brading (drummer), and Dave Jr. (guitarist) have crafted a sound country fans are falling in love with. Their influences range from rock to pop-country and everything in between, but they all have at least one thing in common: a shared love of music. It is this love of music that has helped earn them a #60 spot on The Music Row Country Chart with their debut single “The Lover.”

Rivershine’s has been singing together as a group for about a year now. Their newest single, “Like That,” is a heartwarming song about the kind of love everyone wishes they could have. Recently, Dave Jr. sat down to answer some questions about the new release. He also answered some questions about the band while revealing some of his own personality. There’s quite a bit of excitement and energy behind what they do. It’s easy to see why they are gaining popularity. Take a listen as you read. You won’t be disappointed.

"The Lover"

I looked out on the river and saw the moon reflected in the smooth water and there you have it.

— Rivershine on how they got their name

Shannon Henry: Please talk about your latest single “Like That.”

Rivershine's Dave Jr.: When I first heard the demo, I fell in love with it and knew that we had to cut it.

SH: How did you come up with the name for your band?

DJ: We have a camp on the river and one night by the bonfire, I looked out on the river and saw the moon reflected in the smooth water and there you have it.

"Like That"

We have to work around each other's home lives and we strive hard to make it work.

— Rivershine

SH: What would a first-time Rivershine concert-goer experience?

DJ: A lot of in your face energy. Some old favorites mixed in without originals.

SH: How has being a part of a group altered your singing style?

DJ: We write and find songs that work with Rich's vocal qualities.

SH: Do you have families to raise? If so, how do you balance that with your career?

DJ: It's a give and take. We have to work around each other's home lives and we strive hard to make it work.

"My Luck Changes"

You need ego to succeed in this business, but you have to balance it out.

— Dave Jr. of Rivershine

SH: Does a big ego help or hurt a singer/songwriter?

DJ: It can do both. You need ego to succeed in this business, but you have to balance it out.

SH: What is your definition of success as individuals and as a group?

DJ: Individually, we each bring our own talents to the group and as a band, we work together to make each other better.

SH: If you could share the stage with anyone you choose, who would that be?

DJ: Keith Urban (for me personally), or Tim McGraw

SH: What musical skill would you like to master that you’ve yet to?

DJ: The fiddle

"Won't Be Lonely Long"

Just for Fun:

SH: What takes up way too much of your time?

DJ: My "day" job

SH: Name one thing friends would consider to be “so you.”

DJ: Brutally honest

SH: If you could make one rule that everyone had to follow, what rule would you make?

DJ: That everyone has to speak their minds honestly

SH: What long gone fad or trend do you hope comes back?

DJ: Clubs actually hiring bands rather than DJ's

SH: What is something you prefer doing the old-fashioned way? - Cooking

DJ: What’s the dumbest thing you’ve done that actually turned out pretty well? - Fired one musician to get one ten times better.

Thanks, Flourish. Thank you for taking the time to come by and read some, too. it's much appreciated.

FlourishAnyway from USA on January 11, 2020:

Great job on scoring these interviews and having fun conversations with them.

A B Williams from Central Florida on January 07, 2020:

That would be nice. Go for it! :)

Funny you say that, Angie. I've got "I Pray for You" stuck in my head. I like what I have heard so far from him, except for maybe one song. I haven't heard much, though. Just a few songs on YouTube and that one in my head is in the radio a lot right now. I think it's his official debut single. I would not mind interviewing him too.

A B Williams from Central Florida on January 07, 2020:

What do you think of Matt Stell Shannon? I am really loving his music right now.

Shannon Henry (author) from Texas on January 06, 2020:

Hi Angie,

At least you gave their music a shot. I think their songs here are catchy. It is more pop-country than traditional or 90s country, though.

I used to play the violin way back in middle school and high school. I never mastered it either. LOL. I do wish I would have, though. It's such a melodious instrument even when it's called a fiddle. ;)

A B Williams from Central Florida on January 05, 2020:

I hope he does master the fiddle. When the fiddle and steel guitar make a return, then we can go back to calling it country music.

Good job on the interview Shannon, not sure yet how I feel about their music.

Shannon Henry (author) from Texas on January 05, 2020:

Thanks, Pamela. They're new to me too, but I like their sound. Their songs are catchy, too.

Pamela Oglesby from Sunny Florida on January 05, 2020:

This was another good interview and this group sounds very good. They are new to me, but I don't always pay too much attention to who is singing when I have the radio on. I think this group will have a good future.

Shannon Henry (author) from Texas on January 05, 2020:

Thai you, Chitrangada. I appreciate that. Glad you enjoyed it.

Chitrangada Sharan from New Delhi, India on January 05, 2020:

Thoroughly enjoyed the information, the interview and the videos. The songs are so melodious, and the lyrics are impressive indeed.

Thanks for sharing this wonderful article.

Shannon Henry (author) from Texas on January 04, 2020:

Hi Bill. I do these interviews for HP and for my own website. I actually started out just doing them for my website. If I had a bigger venue to get paid to do these, I'd be doing what I love. Would hardly be work and it would be a win-win for everyone. I'd get paid and thoroughly enjoy it while the artists get promotion for themselves and their music.

Shannon Henry (author) from Texas on January 04, 2020:

Thank you, Cheryl.

Bill Holland from Olympia, WA on January 04, 2020:

Do you do these interviews for a local newspaper, or magazine, or is it just for your HP articles? I would be amazed if there wasn't a bigger venue you could find to publish these. Just curious.

Cheryl E Preston from Roanoke on January 03, 2020:

Very informative article.
