Introducing Nick Waterhouse – A Rhythm & Blues Fanatic

“Nick

Nick Waterhouse is the New Breed – a rhythm & blues fanatic who combines an uncanny old-school sensibility with a charged, contemporary style.

He joins the ranks of similar acts and producers of recent times – Mark Ronson, Amy Winehouse, Sharon Jones, Mayer Hawthorne, Aloe Blacc et al – that are all moving forward into the past, yet are all quite different.

In the January of 2012, Nick Waterhouse released his widely acclaimed debut album Time’s All Gone to audiences around the world. Now, just over two years on, he is back with his second LP Holly due for release in Australia and New Zealand on April 25.

For Waterhouse, his muse is the over-modulated sound of vintage ‘50’s R&B. He combines an astute attention to detail with an honest desire to match the emotional impact of the music that inspires him by using all vintage equipment, recording to magnetic tape and mastering straight to mono. His take on such a time-honored tradition has resonated with fans all over the world.

What Others Are Saying... 

“Think music ain’t what it used to be? Then you haven’t heard Nick Waterhouse. His jumped-up take on 1950’s rhythm ‘n’ blues is the real deal” – GQ US 

“…Nick Waterhouse will pretty much blow your mind. He sounds like the best of early R&B with a heavy dose of Wild Records Rockabilly” – LA Weekly

“Sharon Jones & The Dap-Kings are my measure for old-school R&B purity, but Waterhouse takes it to a new level” – San Diego Reader

“Between the chattering keys, bomping saxes, gorgeous guitar tones and the bandleader’s (Nick’s) voice – which slides effortlessly from cool quaver to feral howl – the end result is undeniable - SPIN 

“Nick Waterhouse is a soul man, through and through” – Rolling Stone US

The first single lifted fromHolly, ‘This Is A Game’,will be officially showcased to Australian and New Zealand audiences next week. To be one of the first to hear it, head to Rolling Stone US where it was premiered just days ago. CLICK HERE
