Wednesday, December 12th: NICK WATERHOUSE

Nick Waterhouse is a songwriter, vocalist, and guitarist who has become a rising star with music that recalls the sounds of the 1950s and early '60s while possessing a modern-day level of energy and cool.

Waterhouse was born in Southern California in 1987, growing up with the sounds of classic blues, soul, and rock sides by the likes of Aretha Franklin, Wilson Pickett, John Lee Hooker, and Van Morrison filling the house. He took up guitar at age 13 and formed an R&B combo in high school.

After relocating to San Francisco, he landed a job at a record store dealing in rare R&B and soul singles, where he was able to study vintage sounds of the '50s and '60s at length.

In 2012, Waterhouse released his first full-length album, Time's All Gone, followed by 2014’s Holly.

He also began branching out into studio work, producing for the Allah-Las, Ural Thomas & The Pain, and Boogaloo Assassins. He released his third album of vintage-sounding R&B, Never Twice on the Innovative Leisure label in 2016.
