Moe's Alley presents a double bill with Water Tower and Austin Shaw.

ABOUT WATER TOWER- Formerly the Water Tower Bucket Boys, they have now kicked the bucket and are now Water Tower. After five years on the road, four albums under their belt, and multiple international tours, Water Tower have been brewing up a storm in the folk music world. The boys have collaborated live with members of bands like Frank Turner, Kitty Daisy and Lewis, the Red Stick Ramblers, and the Foghorn Stringband; and shared the stage with acts like Old Crow Medicine Show, Mumford and Sons, Wilco, Pokey LaFarge and the South City Three, and Woody Pines. They have toured extensively in both the USA and abroad, and performed live on the BBC, NPR, and RTE. Their all-original sound is infectious and has spread far and wide to audiences of all ages and backgrounds. Getting their start busking on street corners playing traditional old time and bluegrass, they eventually honed their sound as a solid dance band playing square dances and bluegrass festivals up and down the West Coast.
However, the boys wanted to take the music further and thus, their new sound was born. Loosely based in the traditions of bluegrass, punk rock, blues, Cajun, folk, and country, their sonic creations transcend all musical boundaries. Their songs feature tight three-part harmonies and powerful instrumentals. This combined with the lightning energy of their stage performances has made them a favorite amongst music connoisseurs throughout the US and Europe alike.

ABOUT AUSTIN SHAW- Santa Cruz-rooted singer-songwriter, guitarist and producer Austin Shaw changed his life and chased down a dream. At the peak of his corporate career Shaw quit his job to pursue his true passion, music.  With a desire to reconnect to his passions, Shaw “played in bands in high school and college, but then did what society said I should do and took a corporate job. Slowly but surely, I played less and less until I finally put down my guitar for good. My music was my meditation, it’s what kept me balanced in life. I lost my balance and times grew dark. So, I decided to go for it and moved from New York to the West Coast for a fresh start. I picked up the guitar again and started playing, writing and recording.” Explained Shaw

Shaw is a born storyteller. His interest in the human experience shine through his music.  He believes everyone has a story to tell “You can look into people’s eyes and get a glimpse of where they have been, where they are, and even where they might be going.” he says.  Shaw catalogs his own stories and the in-depth feelings of other people in his life on his newly released, full-length debut album, FELT.
