Nick Waterhouse released his new video “It’s Time” and this outta sight musician, producer and bandleader will wrap his 2016 with a show at The Regent Theater in downtown Los Angeles.
Waterhouse released his third album, Never Twice earlier this year on Innovative Leisure.
With Never Twice, Nick Waterhouse returned to his original collaborator, producer Michael McHugh (Black Lips, Allah-Las). McHugh is well known in the Orange County, Calif., music scene. McHugh put Waterhouse on tape and to recapture the vibrancy of the Huntington Beach scene. The two worked well together and Waterhouse invited McHugh up to his current home of San Francisco to work the boards once again.
Waterhouse recruited his favorite players to the record on Never Twice. Jazz musician Bob Kenmotsu contributed flute, Tom Waits and Elvis Costello collaborator Ralph Carney plays sax, Dr. Lonnie Smith protege Will Blades is on organ, and a virtual who’s who of music team on horns, bass and guitar. Waterhouse also enlisted friend Leon Bridges on the lead single “Katchi.”
