What do you get when you cross a retired child actor, a laid off machinist, a burnt out audio engineer and a bicycle mechanic? You get the four cornerstones of the alt rock quartet Sick Water. Kaylan, Nate, Justin and Andrew have been secretly planning to take over the world from within the confines of a North Hollywood, CA garage for over 3 years now. And now, armed with their full-length debut album "Aqua Vista", which was recorded in the very same garage, and a loyal So Cal following, SW has set their diabolical plan in motion.
The band has set themselves apart from run of the mill rock with a unique two vocalist approach, and by taking elements of classic rock, punk, indie, pop and hard rock to create their own guitar sound that has been described as mod grunge. Since it's inception, the tenacious four piece has been gigging all over the Southern California area with ferocious performances at the Hard Rock Café, Whisky A Go Go, The Dragonfly, 14 Below, The Martini Lounge, The Cobalt Café, King King, Mr. T's Bowl, The Coconut Teaszer, and many more, as well as a triumphant showcase in Austin, TX at South By Southwest (SXSW) 2003 and several shows in the greater Phoenix area. Stephanie Andolini of Music Connection Magazine wrote, "The unique appeal of this band really comes from the unusually upbeat sound. The audience loves the upbeat aspect of their show," and "this young band could become a force to be reckoned with."
SW's raucous live show combined with a self-recorded, full-length debut album of infectious, raw and powerfully fun rock songs has Sick Water poised to make serious waves on the entire music scene.
