Biography

RIVOAH was born a two years ago. Scruphington had been playing with his sisters Ana and Miranda for a while, yet when Peter joined the band, the dynamics shifted. We became built for live, high energy shows. A power duo at the core, the boys provide the melodies while the girls provide the harmonies. Ultimately a family band, we stick to our roots: indie music with a dance feel.
Our influences are all over the place: Dr. Dre and Prince; Madonna and Nina Simone; King Khan and the shrines to Hall and Oates; Matt and Kim to Two Door Cinema Club; Eagles of death metal to the Eagles; Johnny Cash and Chuck Berry; Celia Cruz to Frank Sinatra. We love everything about music and our style reflects that. 

Recently, we have added bassist and all-around-good-guy Matty G to our unit. With him backing up the rhythm section, our sound is even bigger than before. 

Lyrics

Growing Pains

Written By: Scruphington Rivera

I'm gone I say as summer days conclude, It's true
We've run our course, I'm sorry for your loss, I'm sure

My rash mistakes won't supercede your need to leave me

It'll take a little time to grow apart

I'm sailing on through lands of love and aching for your port
I'm overcome with grief and numb and hoping for your shore

My rash mistakes won't supercede your need to leave me

It'll take a little time to grow apart

Hard Hearted Hannah

Written By: Scruphington Rivera

I had been looking all over for a brown-eyed lover
the whole night you were looking for me
soon ya stole my heart so i took your hand and
I kissed you as sweet as honey

I kick the jukebox loose, we can keep it cute
Shakin' tail-feather cheek to cheek
as soon as DJs through Ima keepin' you
and im gonna give you lovin' so sweet

no no no no no, get up!
Don't go go go go go.

Youre hot as fuck and im on fire
dont depart dont dare retire..... wait for me

I used to roll my eyes i had to bite my tongue
til my baby came and rescued me
Because shes sweet as fuck and im so in love
now im down to give my love to she

i used to know my place i had a shiny plan
nobody had a stronger head than me
you know that nobodies better than HARD HEARTED HANNAH
you know she knows how to make a man weak

no no no no no, get up!
Don't go go go go go.

Youre hot as fuck and im on fire
dont depart dont dare retire..... wait for me
