What do you call a musical gumbo that recalls the ancestral strut and joie de vivre of the New Orleans’ Trem√©, the drama and ecstasy of the church’s wailing floor, and the suited-up sophistication of jazz threaded with the party funk of Parliament? What do you name sounds that hail from Africa, Brazil, the Caribbean, and the red dirt South all at once? How do you label music that simultaneously ev...okes all of the uncontainable energies and passions exploding from so many disparate musical legacies? Here we call it Water Seed.


The rhythm section next, funks things up with You'll Come and Turn you On. Just try to stop knodding your head on these ones.”
Jazz and Soul
 
“it's a great mix of jazz, hip-hop and soul. I also like that it retains a "live" sound, especially when used in tandem with more synthetic sounds. My favorite tracks are Hues of Blue, Feel Like I Do, Can We Dance (waiting for a remix to that one) and Adam & Eve.”
Carlton Hargro - Creative Loafing
 
“The show ended with everyone standing and clapping as if it were church, and then the offering plate came into the audience.”

“Water Seed gives me hope!!!”
