Ancient River
Until The End

Ancient River, the sonic brainchild of singer/songwriter James Barreto, is an ever-changing snapshot of rock n’ roll and psychedelia, flowing from the swampy roots of the American south to the far reaches of inner-space.

Ancient River’s wall-of-sound barrage has been honed by extensive touring across the states and beyond--including appearances at Austin Psych Fest [Levitation] (2010 & 2012), Desert Stars Festival (2016), Milwaukee Psych Festival (2015 & 2017) Reverence Festival Portugal (2015), Psychedelic Revolution Festival France (2015), Psycho De Mayo Los Angeles (2014), Desert Stars Festival Pre-Party (2014) and the Liverpool International Festival of Psychedelia (2012).

They have released 7 albums, 2 EP’s, including an EP for Sony/EMI London Music Publishing and have a new album on the way.
