Little River Band is considered to be one of Australia’s most significant bands. Worldwide album and CD sales now top 30 million. They also set a record for having Top 10 hits in the US for 6 consecutive years… the first band to achieve that mark. According to BMI, their song « Reminiscing » has garnered rare status with over 5 million airplays on the American radios, and « Lady » is close behind with over 4 million airplays.

Little River Band was rightfully inducted into the Australian Recording Industry Association (ARIA) Hall of Fame at the 18th Annual ARIA Music Awards of 2004.
Headlining their own major shows in America, and touring internationally with the likes of the Doobie Brothers, Supertramp, America, and the Eagles was a huge learning curve that honed LRB into one of the finest live bands in the world.
Through the years LRB has thrived as a highly respected and constantly in-demand outfit, going about their craft with a dedication to excellence and professionalism that few, if any, can match. The Little River Band nowadays is stronger than ever: there is a new element of youthfulness and vitality, anchored by leader and consummate lead vocalist / bass guitarist Wayne Nelson, who began his LRB career in 1980.
Wayne says: « The songs on the new album have been either written by the band or submitted by songwriters from the Nashville scene. We tailored all the songs into the traditional LITTLE RIVER BAND mold… smooth AOR arrangements with lots of vocals and guitar harmonies ».
The LRB lineup offers a combination of talent and professionalism which shines on the new songs as well as in the live show. Last year alone more than 85 dates were played covering the USA as never before. From Portland to Fort Lauderdale and New York to LA, fans of the band were treated to an entertaining mix of classic songs and new material.
