For fans of Jackson Browne, Lyle Lovet, or Peter Case, the thoughtfully crafted songs of Robbie J Waters will make you fell right at home. Think of a metaphysical travelogue set to acoustic roots music.
Robbie J Waters’ remarkable musical expedition began in Nelson BC. Nelson is a small but significant cultural and intellectual center, teaming with live classical and folk music, painters, writers, photographers and poets. As a teenager Robbie spent his evenings in coffeehouses and meeting places like ‘The Jam Factory’, ‘The Vallican Hole’, and ‘The Preservation House’ listening Bruce Cockburn, Valdy, Ramblin' Jack Elliot, or some other unknown artist work their magic with guitars, fiddles, and unpolished voices. Before long he had a guitar of his own and was putting his own songs together.
While in Nelson, Robbie came under the musical mentorship of British recording pioneer and Hawkwind keyboardist Del Detmar, and in Del’s studio he made his first multitrack recordings.
Recording under the name James Burchart, he made his first album Songs for the Common Man at Victoria’s indie/punk Mecca Down Town Sound. Songs for the Common Man received Much-Music and alternative radio rotation, and the single Boyle Street was recently selected for the book/CD All That You Can Hear documenting the Indie music scene in Victoria.
Over the years the albums Lost Within the Flame, and The Backroads followed, and He is currently working on his most ambitious CD to date From Here to Nowhere.
