The singer/songwriting partnership of Australian Neil Lemon and Brit Angie Paice started over 20 years ago on the shores of the Pacific Ocean in Diamond Bay, Sydney. Having initially formed a band called Rivers & Roads they spent a decade developing their folk-pop sound playing in pubs, hotels, festivals and private functions across Sydney and the state of New South Wales.
Their fusion of friendly folk pop fuelled 3 albums – ‘Kickin’ Dust’; ‘Big & Blue’ and ‘Freedom to the World’ as Rivers & Roads. The band enjoyed successful long-term band residencies at The Tattersalls Hotel in Rozelle and the prestigious Rocks Market in Sydney as coordinated by The Sydney Harbour Foreshore Authority.
All 3 albums enjoyed healthy airplay across the community and oftentimes national radio programmes in Australia and the single ‘Freedom to the World’ video was launched on national television’s Channel 10 Video Hits show during peak time.
In 2009, Neil Lemon & Angie Paice relocated to England where they continue to perform as Lemon & Paice with friends, playing songs from the early days in Rivers & Roads and also new material which continues to prove popular in hotels, private functions and festivals.
‘Songs on Toast’ was recorded and produced in 2014 as a celebration of their performances in cafes and intimate venues, an album of old faithfuls they have played since their early days as well as the best of new songs. This includes the popular ‘Tale of Mrs Gardiner’ a country ballads about the plight of the Australian brumbies in northern NSW. While the single ‘Choices’, written on the 380 Bondi bus, from the album ‘Songs on Toast’ was a Top 20 finalist for Record of the Year on Radio Six International in 2015. All Rivers & Roads and Lemon & Paice songs are now digitally distributed through Ditto Music UK and are available across all digital platforms.
