When Jon Willard and Denis Crake get together to play as BackRiver the result is a blend of blues infused covers and original songs.

Jon is an extremely competent guitarist steeped in country and rock music who has been delighting locals on the Bellarine for some time.

Denis has a background in singing the blues and his wailing blues harmonica sits well against the versatility of Jon’s guitar.

BackRiver have been playing their interpretation of selected covers and unique original songs to some acclaim in both local and city venues for a number of years.
