"The one to watch: Water seed"


Published 09.05.07

EVENT: Water Seed opens for Janelle Monae at Wednesday WindDown, 5:30 p.m. Wednesday, Sept. 19, at Centennial Park (285 International Blvd.). It's also at Cafe Noir (264 Peters St.) Friday nights.

REASON TO WATCH: Water Seed is a band of New Orleans natives who relocated their salt-seasoned soul to Atlanta in Hurricane Katrina's wake. The group's live show delivers with a Creole mix of funk, jazz, rock 'n' rhythm.

LAST SEEN: Performing for a packed house at the Apache Café Aug. 17, where the band recorded a live CD to be released at a later date

WHAT THEY SAY: "It's something about coming up in New Orleans and being a New Orleans musician," says Crescent City native and band founder Lou Hill. "We're serious about people getting up, partying and having a good time at the shows. It's cool if you snap your fingers for two or three songs, but for the most part we're [about] perfecting intense live shows in the tradition of street music in New Orleans. Just the whole energy of that city is about rhythm and moving, and that's what we bring to our shows."

WHAT'S NEXT: Their second studio disc, Wonder Love, should be out in time to make a hot holiday stocking stuffer. For more information, visit www.waterseedmusic.com.

Feeling a bit camera shy


In August 2006 Water Seed let loose with their first EP, Two Words. Independently released, the
seven track EP has generated a ground swelling buzz to the tune of a 1,000 units sold in the first 6
months of this underground release. This co-ed ensemble possesses a brotherly and sisterly love that vibrates through each and every one of their songs. They have been referred to as “the group of brother/sister love”, “A band that represents harmony in a way that most bands try to achieve”, and the band to keep an eye on”. Now, at the peak of this buzz, the world is waiting, watching and listening. Water Seed ’s answer is the full length Wonder Love. Lou Hill, leader of the band, describes Wonder Love as “a collection of songs of love. Not just the love between man and women, but love for life, family, ancestors, the planet, the body, and the spirit. This CD creates a groove in your being and sends vibrations through your soul. Just invite your closest friends over, put this CD on and vibe to it.” Water Seed has a live show like no other. You can take the musician out of New Orleans, but you can’t take New Orleans out of the musician. It is no wonder this band is always in high demand. There has never been a show performed by Water Seed without the band breaking into those New Orleans street beats that we all love. Crowds can’t get enough of Water Seed’s live energy. Water Seed was changed by Hurricane Katrina and through this change they will reach the masses. Maybe Water Seed is on the fast track to stardom. Maybe Water Seed is just gaining momentum, but one thing is for sure; Water Seed is just getting started.
