Although Great Unknown is the debut album for Austin, TX Americana/Soul band The Watters, it is far from the first collaboration between Daniel & Jenna Watters. The first song sang together was Simon & Garfunkel’s “Bridge Over Troubled Waters” at their high school graduation in Sedona, AZ. They have been playing music together now for 11 years, writing together for 8 years and have collaborated on six albums together. They toured extensively throughout the country as “The Oak Creek Band” during their tenures in Denver and Nashville before relocating to Austin in February 2015 and changing their band name to The Watters.
The Watters recorded their debut full-length album Great Unknown at Cacophony Recorders studio in Austin, Texas in December, and self-released it on July 1st, 2016. It features an array of some of Austin’s best musicians including Trevor Nealon of Band of Heathens, Joe Woullard and Zumbi Richards of Golden Dawn Arkestra and Erik Hokkanan. The full 9-piece band (including a three piece horn section) is featured throughout the entire album. The original session was recorded live to tape to capture the energy that distinguishes the band’s live sound.
