Imagine Fleetwood Mac, Tedeschi Trucks Band and Rilo Kiley merging into one dynamic supergroup, and you will start to get an idea of The Watters unique Americana/Soul sound. Daniel and Jenna Watters, schoolmates turned band mates turned soul mates, share lead vocals and guitar in the group along side their 6-piece band. The Watters originated as The Oak Creek Band in 2009, named for the area where Daniel and Jenna grew up near Sedona, AZ. The ensemble was based out of Denver and then Nashville until relocating to Austin, Texas in 2015.
Daniel and Jenna have been playing music together for 12 years, writing together for 8 years and have worked on six albums together. They have toured extensively throughout the country and sold out the first pressing of their self-titled EP in less than one year. The Watters have garnered a devoted fan base through their high-energy performances, well-crafted songwriting, stirring vocals and road-weathered musicianship. Their songs are webbed in a world of truth and wonder with a timeless spirit.
The Watters recorded their forthcoming album Great Unknown at Cacophony Recorders studio in Austin, Texas in December, which will be released on July 2nd, 2016.
