Last week, Nick Waterhouse returned with his third album, Never Twice out now on Innovative Leisure. Today Waterhouse unveiled his music video for one of the albums tracks, “L.A. Turnaround.” He’s currently out on tour and will play Music Hall of Williamsburg in Brooklyn this Saturday, October 8th. Today, Waterhouse also announces a slate of new tour dates beginning December 2nd with stops in Nashville, Atlanta, Austin, New Orleans and more. Full tour dates listed below.
With Never Twice, Nick Waterhouse returned to his original collaborator, producer Michael McHugh (Black Lips, Ty Segall, Allah-Las). McHugh was a local legend in the oft-underrated Orange County music scene that Nick grew up in. McHugh was the first person to ever put Nick on tape and in an effort to re-capture the vibrancy of the Huntington Beach scene of Nick’s youth, he invited McHugh up to his current home of San Francisco to work the boards once again. Once he had McHugh on board, Nick began cold-calling his favorite players, all of whom miraculously said yes. Jazz musician Bob Kenmotsu’s contributed flute, Tom Waits and Elvis Costello collaborator Ralph Carney on sax, Dr. Lonnie Smith protege Will Blades on Organ and a virtual whose who of muso legends on horns, bass and guitar. In addition to these jazz greats, Waterhouse enlisted his friend Leon Bridges on the lead single “Katchi.” The result is an exuberant and impeccably recorded album of songs, showcasing Waterhouse’s prowess as a musician and a band-leader.
