Nick Waterhouse news

Nick Waterhouse’s latest record Holly will be released March 4 on Innovative Leisure.

The new music follows the 2012 debut Time’s All Gone which received widespread acclaim. Waterhouse will tour throughout February. See below for details.

Holly includes songwriting contributions and collaborations from Ty Segall, Mose Allison and others. Of the new music Waterhouse notes, “Thematically this record feels more like a novella, or poem with sections, or even a film, than a collection of songs. It is a work of fiction, with a protagonist, but also a floating omniscient narrator, and fragments of conversation from other characters. I was heavily influenced by my surroundings in young Los Angeles, as well as the concept of fate.”

Waterhouse grew up in Huntington Beach, CA. He established his musical sensibilities in the middle of the burgeoning Southern California psych-garage scene, while retaining his unique perspective on the spirit of American R&B and rock 'n' roll.

Having started performing as a teenager, he “found it had the same feeling I got racing motorcycles as a kid, which is a fight-or-flight feeling of things happening in ‘real time’…I felt like that was the most focusing thing about playing music versus other forms of art. You have to live with what you do in an immediate moment.”
