Rivers & Robots          

British Christian Indie-Rock Band

Rivers & Robots is a British Christian indie-rock band out of Manchester, England.

Rivers & Robots started as a solo project of Jonathan Ogden from Manchester, with the aim of releasing worship songs with a creative sound, often based directly on Bible passages or psalms, and produced mostly at home with a laptop, keyboard, and guitar. The name came from the mixture of acoustic and electronic instruments used in recording.

In 2012, Jonathan grew the project into a full live band, going on to record albums as a four-piece. The band has since had the opportunity to lead worship and do mission trips in many different cities around the UK, Europe, and Asia.

The band's fourth studio album, The Eternal Son, was released on May 20, 2016. In 2018, Rivers & Robots released their fifth album, Discovery, which featured the single "Dreams."

The band, whose members are Ogden (vocals, guitar, keys), Nathan Stirling (bass, vocals), Caleb Choo (drums), and Philip Shibata (guitar), now lives as missionaries, and spends their time leading worship in churches, clubs, and festivals, hosting monthly worship nights in gig venues around Manchester and running a non-profit organization called Set Sail, which aims to raise up creative worship and art in the UK.
