Formed in 2014, Brooklyn based BODIES BE RIVERS originated in the living room of Lauren Smith and Thomas Stephanos. Thomas, an avid guitar player, and Lauren, a prolific songwriter, stumbled upon a sonic world that felt like home. They have been writing together ever since.
As the songs grew, so did the band. Today, BODIES BE RIVERS is comprised of Thomas Stephanos (guitar), Lauren Smith (vox & keys), Summer Stephanos (vox), Jason Lawrence (drums), and Matt Moon (bass)
Their songs, once described as intimate yet fiercely bellowing, give way to a shape-shifting soundscape. From tranquil streams to thunderous rapids, lilting vocals erupt in melody over a palette of gently mournful, trilling electric guitars.
