They might have just released their debut single, “Landmark,” but if the name Waterfall Wash sounds incredibly familiar, it’s because we’ve been keeping you in the loop about these guys for well over a year now- and not just because the lineup includes No Country alum Andrew Johnson; we’re genuinely huge fans. Whether it’s been at East Nashville Underground or our very own Christmas Carol Show, the numerous times we’ve had a chance to check out Waterfall Wash, they’ve consistently impressed, showcased a dynamic and ever-expanding range, and have matured into one of the best up and coming live acts in town.
Pairing Johnson with Michael Roddy, Matt Simms, and Wes Cramer, along with a whole host of guest contributors, Waterfall Wash are an experimental mesh of folk, indie, gospel, and rock. We weren’t sure what to expect with “Landmark,” and, though it showcases all of those elements, it lands in a more upbeat, driving folk rock realm that we would have guessed- and we love it! With soaring harmonies, infectious melodies, and expert and varied instrumentation, “Landmark” proves that sometimes the best things are worth waiting for. If you’ve been sleeping on this band, it’s time to wake up.
