Summer 2020 Update
We've all been so fortunate that our families and friends have remained healthy and well over these past months. We are keenly aware that these are difficult times for so many. We are grateful to have the ability to regroup and continue recording tracks for our upcoming albumin a socially distant manner. We hope that we can be back out playing soon and look forward to sharing time with you all then. Please stay tuned for updates and most importantly- stay safe, healthy and well!
"Water Street is one of the best well-rounded musical efforts emerging from the indie scene in recent memory."
~Lydia Hillenberg, Vents Magazine
Born out of the northwest hills of NJ in the shadow of the Appalachian Ridge,
Water Street mixes soulful acoustic melodies, enticing bluegrass mandolin riffs, and a driving rhythm section with some hints of funk which combine to create a unique Pop/Americana sound.
The band is named after the real life
Water Street in Blairstown, where in 2014 the founding members began playing
and practicing in an old warehouse adjacent to the Paulinskill Creek.
The band released their first full length album Waiting for Martin in 2016 and followed it up with Dear You a six track
EP in 2018 and have appeared on the pages of Vents Magazine and The Indie Music Review. They are currently working on their third release, due out in 2020.
"This is Americana music for our modern world, still full of the same depth and soul heard on classic recordings, but much more resonate with our modern lives"
- Joshua Stride, Music Existence
"Water Street are more than a talented regional act – they are a band whose talents leave them teetering on the cusp of greatness."
-Bradley Johnson, Carlitos Music Blog
"Water Street embodies the best of modern Americana while surrounding their material with an excellence that extends far past typical."
-Monty Zike, Valhalla Music Blog
