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. 

His songs take you on a journey, combining energetic rock bombast with soulful melodies. Shaw is a born storyteller. His interest in the human experience shines through his music.  His songs are diaries glowing with warm, intricate layers. They feature catchy guitar hooks and soul-baring lyrics that offer up Shaw’s perspectives on love, loss, longing and self-discovery.

Since January 2017 Shaw has been crisscrossing the country on tour with David Bromberg and playing to sold-out crowds.  He released his debut album, FELT, the end of last year. 

"Shaw brings us a feeling good, gutsy set of songs. No facade with Shaw, this Santa Cruz-based songwriter, singer and surfer bares his soul through words and music leaving you feeling positive and hopeful" – Innocent Word

With his new album, FELT, Shaw delivers a cohesive body of work that would be the envy of any artist.
