When any music fan thinks about Seattle, only good things come to mind. This is the same city that gave you iconic legends such as Jimi Hendrix, Nirvana or Pearl Jam. The same town that keeps breeding new talented artist with a unique approach, including recent cult bands such as Minus The Bear or new global sensations like Band Of Horses.
With such credentials, it is not surprising to keep hearing of great talents coming out of this fertile artistic and cultural ground – and this is definitely the case of 25 year old local Max Watters, a young and brilliant musician with a truly unique and eclectic approach.
Watters strives to deliver the most organic and warm feel with his guitar licks, as well as the most modern and tight club beats, experimenting with computer music and EDM.
Our day and age puts an unbelievable range of tools, instruments and forms of expressions at the service of creative performers and songwriters like Watters, who fully takes advantages of this versatility, refusing to lock himself into a boxand experimenting with a variety of genres. While many guitars maintain a stubbornly purist point of view, Watters is bold enough to embrace the new, expanding his technique with new sounds and musical formats, pushing the boundaries of his skills and of the genres he explores.
With his passionate, experienced and mature take on blues, rock, funk and pop, Watters is considered to be one of the top guitarist hailing from the west coast – although his skills are not only limited to the instrument: Watters has developed a fondness for music as diverse as hip hop and EDM (Electronic Dance Music), composing many tracks within these genres.
Max Watters has collaborated with a number of artists, including Canadian based Jutes (this particular collaboration led to an explosive single, “Fresh Air”) – but the guitarist and composer is also known for his work with several hip-hop local and national, as well as for his participation in Men Of Valor and dance oriented project Hell A Weirdo, Faded Theory, Ethan Tucker, Stay Grounded. Max has shared tour and festival stages with the likes of Jordani, Stephanie Ann Johnson, Hirie, Slight Stoopid, Michael Franti and Buddy Guy.
It is certainly interesting to see what happens within a group setting, when the final direction of a project depends on the creative collision of individuals with different backgrounds, ideas and sensibility. Any project that benefits of Max’s involvement has got something different to offer, demonstrating an artist that is also able to work well in a team without overshadowing the other group members like many solo guitarists and composers do, failing to understand the importance of group dynamics. This is a musician is able to let his vision stand out and work well in harmony with a band setting as well in a solo setting.
