Waterstrider ~ White Light

Waterstrider Artwork!

Who is Waterstrider?   An intriguing 5-piece band from Oakland California consisting of Nate Salman (Vocals, Guitar), Drew Brown (Guitar, Synth), Scott Brown (Bass), Brijean Murphy (Percussion), and Walker Johnson (Drums)!

My first impression of “White Light” :  A freshly invigorating blend of percussive sounds and guitar textures with some of the most stretched out lyrics I have heard in a long time!

My take : “White Light” is a very interesting song in the sense that it explores the reality that everyone is essentially all the same.  Some of us are fortunate enough to be under the bright lights of stardom but when we break it down to the most basic level of existence, we all are striving for the same things: to be happy and to make the most of our short time here on earth.  WATERSTRIDER does a clever job lyrically with “White Light” in making me think internally about everything I have complete control over.  And realizing I have the strength and the power to change anything I want to in life if I get out of my own way and try to make it happen.  “White Light” is the first official single from their debut album, ‘Nowhere Now’, set to be released sometime later this year.  And if the other tracks are as fun or anywhere near as inspiring as this one is, WATERSTRIDER will turning a lot of heads in 2015!

TMH RATING: 7.8/10 Very Good!

Born in sunny San Diego and raised in central Illinois. I graduated from the University of Illinois @Urbana-Champaign and spent the better part of 10 years in sunny Phoenix Arizona after graduation. I now reside in Savoy IL and I try to make it up to the Chicago music scene as much as I can. Music has always been a part of my life and I wouldn’t have it any other way!
