What is that ever-elusive x-factor that makes a good band great? Perhaps the question is essentially rhetorical; it’s like attempting to determine the precise recipe for a hit song – there are too many variables that need to be factored into the equation to provide a consistently predictable result.
Nevertheless, success in the music industry is often dependent on the uneasy relationship between persistence and coincidence. Add to the mix a little pinch of this and a little dash of that, some worthwhile songsmithing, and voila!
If stirred correctly at suitably simmering temperatures, you have Watershed .
And they have the X-factor. Unquestionably.
But it’s a one-off kind of thing, and they are rare indeed.
Since the time they dared to step onto the front porch of the pantheon of popular music in 2000 in an attempt to follow in the footsteps of fame, Watershed have revealed themselves to be an outfit who can produce songs that are instantly recognizable and yet utterly unique. The fact that they are South African is a source of pride to their huge local fan base, but totally beside the point. Their musical language is wonderfully universal – a fact that their latest release, Staring at the Ceiling will definitely underscore. They’ve arrived; they have been granted citizenship of our musical world. And they are first class citizens.
Watershed is :
Craig Hinds – vocals, piano, acoustic guitar Nic Rush – lead guitar, vocals Peter Auret – drums James Sunney – bass Hylton Brooker – keyboards
We are very proud to win Watershed for a charity concert sponsering Löwenmut in Wiesbaden.
