Since 2014 I've been playing with a cover band called "The Spokane River Band". We've played all over the greater Spokane area and as far as Eureka Montana and Moses Lake Washington. I wanted to write a song called "Spokane River" so I created this little story about a pioneer coming through the northwest and falling in love with an Indian princess. The man has to go on to the coast for a job that he's taken, so he tells the princess to ride the river to rendezvous with him. The main thing was that I wanted to be able to sing the band name - but I'm really happy about how this song turned out!
