HEADWATER

Vancouver's Headwater is one of the busiest acoustic roots bands on the West Coast. They are as equally at home playing festivals and soft-seaters as they are busking on the street before a nightclub gig. Headwater's music is characterized by adventurous slide-guitar solos, three part vocal harmonies. Their songs vary in mood, from the upbeat and quick "Freight Train" to the slower, meandering "Pleasure and the Rhyme". Headwater has recently released their latest CD: Lay You Down.
