Oliver Waterman

Oliver Waterman is a singer/songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist.

“• Meanwhile, this new EP by local balladeer OLIVER WATERMAN is totally worth a listen. Probably the most interesting local songwriter to recall Jeff Buckley in a while. It's pretty raw, sure, but its six songs show a ton of promise. Waterman's still quite young, but has been playing out for years already and has built up some serious musical chops. And of course, that voice is gold.”

“The compilation climaxes with a stunning acoustic guitar piece from Oliver Waterman, a sobering coda to a wild ride that makes the perfect album closer. These days, Waterman also is a member of Rural Ghosts, so it’s fitting that his and the Rural Ghosts’ tracks are the bookends for the record. With playing this fluid and this beautiful, no vocals are needed.”

“The brightest, shiniest production on the compilation comes courtesy of Oliver Waterman’s track, “Christ in Devil’s Clothes.” His is a polished, professional sound that’s tailor-made for adventurous radio, but still with enough heart and integrity to appeal to indie rockers.”
