"...Eccentric electronica, a dash of disco and blue eyed soul-fullness, mixed up in a great big bundle of off-centre gorgeousness..."

Biography

***Currently working with Billie Ray Martin, Ashley Beedle and Olene Kadar!!!***

London-based electronica artist Waterson was recently called an “a one-man electronic band” by quirky movie star Alan Cumming. And as frontman for electro band Detroit Starrzz he was described as “an underground electro sensation” by Music Week!

He writes, produces, and mixes everything himself and is currently as much in demand overseeing other artist projects as he is for his own work.

Previous hits include Pete Tong-discovered, top ten download, ‘I Love Linda’ (Kinky Malinki), after-hours anthem ‘Strip Down’ (Junior Boys Own) with Smokin’ Jo and underground electro club smash ‘Fa Fa Feel’ (now signed to Oxyd Records and described as “innovative and eclectic” by Beatport), with a brand-new version being co-produced with Essential New Tune man-of-the-moment Olene Kadar and is due for international release through Universal.

He is published by 23rd Precinct/Notting Hill Music where his credits as either writer, remixer or producer include legendary queen of electronic soul Billie Ray Martin, upbeat dance diva Shena (BBC Radio 2 B Playlist), cooler-than-cool Glasgwegian band A Band Called Quinn (Number 6 in the UK Indie Chart) as well as a blinding, forthcoming collaboration with none-other-than Ashley Beedle.

He has performed all over the globe from New York to Los Angeles, Copenhagen to Paris, Hong Kong to Singapore in venues such as Crobar, Ministry of Sound, Les Bains Douches, Vega and Sub Club. The Scotsman newspaper said quite simply “Waterson brings the house down”.

Radio airplay has taken in BBC Radio 1 & 2, 6 Music, BBC Radio Scotland, XFM, Virgin, Kiss, Choice FM, Miss Moneypenny’s, Push FM, Global Ibiza House Radio, House Nation France, Radio Beach FM and many, many more from Tokyo to Toronto and everywhere in between. TV credits include BBC, ITV, Channel Four, MTV, MTV2 and The Box.

Lyrics

Tears From Nowhere

Written By: Colin Waterson

Verse 1: Talk the pain from my brain
And turn it into a cloud
Clear and bright
Cool and light
But something isn't right

Chorus: TEARS COME OUT OF NOWHERE
JUST LIKE A SUBWAY TRAIN
SWEAT ROLLS OFF MY HAIR
AND I NEVER FEEL THE SAME

Vesre 2: I'm on the edge of The Earth
No longer alone
Feeling, finally somewhere
I'm doing just what you've shown
