Watershed Coastal Tour - Emeraldvale - 30 December 2020
Watershed, one of the most successful and well-loved bands ever to come out of South Africa, who have just celebrated their 20th year in the music industry in 2020 will be performing here at Emeraldvale Brewery LIVE for the first time on Wednesday 30 December 2020!
This multi-platinum selling band have released 6 studio albums so far, along with a greatest hits album during their 20 year career, as well as receiving 2 SAMA awards for best pop album and a SAMA nomination for best adult contemporary album in 2019. They are also multiple winners of SA's best band award by People Magazine.
Eighteen years after the release of their debut album ‘In the meantime’, Watershed have put together their 6th studio album ‘Harbour'. This South African music success story has had a string of radio singles that way surpasses the years they have been around. 'Indigo girl’, ‘Fine way’ and ‘Letters’ mentioning a few. The band has toured and had major success in the big European territories performing alongside some of the biggest names in world music, such as U2, Peter Gabriel, Bob Geldof, The Corrs and The Cranberries. Craig Hinds, lead singer and songwriter for this band has built a career on lyrics and melodies that have touched his fans and consistently grown a following with every album the band has produced.
The musicianship is incredible and the vocals predictably powerful. The song structures are original, and the lyrics are breathtakingly honest! The ballads, true to the form and style of this well-loved band, are meaningful and emotional beyond our wildest dreams. Lyrically, Craig has captured stories that we all live with daily and will feel of forever! The album is well balanced with an even spread of up-tempo tracks with the sounds of mandolins, Banjos, violins and ukuleles playing an integral part in this incredible energy. The band have also covered a late 80’s Waterboys song ‘Fisherman’s Blues’ , which they have been playing live and which is a fantastic tribute to this timeless song!
Having toured both locally and internationally over the years off the back of their smash hits 'Indigo
Girl' and 'Letters' the band have carved an acoustic rock sound that is undeniably Watershed in its
uniqueness and crowd pleasing in its boldness. 'Watch the Rain', the lyrically intense and groove
filled song off their 5th studio album mesmerized audiences and took them into a space where ending
the show is not an option for the band. Watershed throws out hit after hit in their 2-hour performances
and never disappoints. This multi-talented 5-piece band switch from acoustic guitars to pianos &
ukuleles seamlessly whilst their sound remains fresh, powerful and melodic.
Since their breakthrough single in 2000 with “Indigo Girl” South African rock icons Watershed have
built their way up to be one of the most respected and decorated bands to come out of the Southern
Tip of Africa. Their distinctive melodic guitar sounds blend with the sultry tones of lead singer and
songwriter Craig Hinds voice to create a soothing and classic rock sound that is easily recognizable
and yet utterly unique.
Watershed are 20 years in the making and nowhere near ready to stop.
