Riverside is an Essex-based boyband relatively new to the music scene, having only formed earlier on in 2013. Jack Smith, Tommy Miller and Jake Kirby have racked up almost 15,000 Youtube views, covering artists such as One Direction and Justin Bieber, and with over 5,500 Twitter followers, the boys are steadily building a dedicated fanbase of 'Rivlets'. With an X Factor audition on the cards, more fame and fans are surely on the horizon for Riverside.

As HD Music Promotion's first ever 'Artist of the Week', it only made sense to get the boys involved in a little 'Q & A'. Here's what HD asked...

How would you sum up Riverside in 3 sentences? A group of young lads from Essex, on the journey to achieving our dreams, by doing what we love which is music, with the support of a strong team and our amazing fanbase the Rivlets.

What do you hope to have achieved in 5 years’ time? To be be recognised on a worldwide scale and we hope to reach out to as many people in the world by doing what we love and by making people happy.

However, a ‘Q & A’ is nothing without fan questions and HD got an incredible response on Twitter with so many being sent in! Read on to see if the boys answered your question below!
