If I Was a River is the tenth studio album from American singer-songwriter Willie Nile. The all-piano album was released in November 2014 under River House Records. Nile recorded If I Was a River on the same Steinway grand piano that he played the night John Lennon was killed, December 8, 1980. Nile was in Studio "A" at The Record Plant in New York City making Golden Down and John and Yoko were working on Walking on Thin Ice in Studio C that night.
So was anyone out there expecting Nile to make an entire album of contemplative, midtempo acoustic numbers built around the guy playing piano?

I've known rivers: I've known rivers ancient as the world and older than the. flow of human blood in human veins. My soul has grown deep like the rivers. It’s no accident that the man born Robert Anthony Noonan, who performs under the sobriquet taken from the world’s longest river (Willie Nile), framed his latest album with two songs with waterways as the central metaphor.

Willie Nile has severe Resting Shredder Face. Photo by Cristina Arrigoni. The pun may be unintentional, but that makes it no less perfect. With a name like Willie Nile, it was just a matter of time before the guy made an album called If I Was a River. Still, although he’s too unpretentious to underscore it, don’t let the wordplay fool you. Like his friend Bruce Springsteen’s similarly titled record from 1980, Nile’s River is deep, sometimes dark, and ultimately a sweeping summation of his four decades in music.
