After 5 years on the road, 4 albums under their belt and multiple international tours, Water Tower has been brewing up a storm in the folk music world. The boys have collaborated live with members of bands like Frank Turner, Kitty Daisy and Lewis, the Red Stick Ramblers, and the Foghorn Stringband and shared the stage with acts like Old Crow Medicine Show, Mumford and Sons, Wilco, Pokey LaFarge and the South City Three, and Woody Pines. They have toured extensively in both the USA and abroad, and performed live on the BBC, NPR, and RTE. Their all original sound is infectious and has spread far and wide to audiences of all ages and walks of life. Based in Portland, Oregon these young gents got their start busking on street corners playing traditional old time and bluegrass, eventually honing their sound as a solid dance band playing square dances and bluegrass festivals up and down the west coast.
Drawing sustenance from the deep roots of traditional American music, these four youths of Portland, OR, have grown from a sapling quartet of street musicians to towering oak of musical energy. Priding themselves on an eclectic musical palette that transcends their American roots instrumentation (upright bass, guitar, mandolin,banjo), they inspire audiences to live, love, dance, and sing at every show. Hearts will be broken, mended, then uplifted by the soulful, heartfelt lyrics of these modern day troubadours. Stomp your feet and raise your glass, 'cuz this ain't your pappy's bluegrass.
