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.
Staci and Kristi Foster-
It is on the front porch that faces into the South wind of a Texas summer where the music of Staci Foster truly belongs. Writing songs for years and finding inspiration in her travels, Staci has finally settled long enough to record her first full length album, Summertime, which serves as a soundtrack to any soft evening on a front porch. The album is long awaited and follows in the singer-songwriting spirit/tradition of many female artists such as Lucinda Williams, Terri Hendix …Some songs, like “These Days” and “Gypsy Hop” have been in Foster’s repertoire for years, yet were never recorded until now. While other songs like “Wait, Wait, Wait” “Stepping Stone” and “Mother” deliver folky melodies blended with charming and blossoming harmonies. At times the album is reminiscent of an early 60’s country and yet would equally fit in on an evening at the Kerrville Folk Festival, where she is known to be playing around the campfires.
