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 Watershed 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, The Cranberries. Craig Hinds,

Watershed | Conference Entertainers

Llead 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.

‘Harbour’ boasts 10 tracks that are acoustic in their construction, and current in their appeal.

Hinds teamed up with fellow band mate, and producer, Gideon Botes to come up with a production that is Watershed all the way.

‘We took a while to get this album done, because Gidi and I and the rest of the guys had to carve out time in our schedules to work on this record –

It’s not that easy to set out to record and produce an album within a set number of weeks.

It requires a different kind of discipline but allowed us the freedom to listen and improve on stuff as we went.

The result is something we are all really proud of. It also allowed us the time to listen and comment and make our own unique contributions.

We are lucky to be in a band of people who are all individual and talented and even more than that, mature enough to let the songs do the talking without the influence of too much ego!

Its such a privileged place for me to be, to work with each of them’.

The Watershed band is Craig Hinds on vocals, keyboards, guitar, Howie Combrink on drums and guitar, Gideon Botes on electric guitar, Quintin Askes on bass and Paul McIver on acoustic guitar.

The musicianship is incredible and the vocals predictably powerful.

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!

The first single, ‘Mountainside’ is an up tempo, groove filled, bass driven track.

Watershed message is simple, It’s time to move on from the negativity we are faced with every day.

‘I’m waiting for the perfect day to spread my wings and fly down the mountainside’, says Hinds. We can continue to explore cause and effect but the actual route to a life that’s meaningful and forward moving is to embrace simplicity and explore the small joys that give us true meaning.

Another giant of a song is ‘Out the window’ which features Lira, who needs no introduction!

This duet is simply incredible with the two voices working together to give us a hauntingly beautiful song about two people watching themselves grow old together from a third person perspective…

‘Lira is a dream to work with and her enthusiasm and straight up love for what she does, reminds me why we do what we do. It’s not about trying to find the next hit, or breaking into a market, or reinventing yourself; it really is about creating a song from nothing and watching it grow into something so much more than you ever imagined.’

Watershed touring schedule is as usual very full with shows booked both internationally and locally.

Catch them at a city near you and experience the talent of their powerful live show!
