On Friday 21 and Saturday 22 Watershed will perform at the Barnyard Theatre. Acoustic rock hardly comes better than that created by them and the release of the group's second album, "Wrapped in Stone", is confirmation of it's standing as the premier act in it's genre in South Africa and their ability to stand alongside the world's best bands.
Watershed have also enjoyed growing international sucess. "Indigo Girl" was originally play-listed on the German station SWR3 - picked up by a DJ on the station while on holiday in South Africa. After that, the momentum started and soon EMI Germany began working with Watershed in 2002. Since then, a repackaged version "In the Meantime" was released in Germany, Austria and Switzerland, along with "Indigo Girl" which was released in several territories as a stand along single.

Bursting onto the scene with their first album in 2000; IN THE MEANTIME, Watershed scored with hit after hit on the rock/pop charts, this band has grown from strength to strength over the past 7 years. As a result of the support of South African and European fans, all three WATERSHED albums have had huge sales impact:

IN THE MEANTIME platinum album
MOSAIC platinum album

The 4th album is due for release in August! NEW ALBUM ‘ Staring at the Ceiling’

Recorded in Sheffield and London between January and June 2008, this is Watershed’s 4th album to date.
This album represents development of the band both from a songwriting and production point of view. EMI has given Watershed their full support by getting the buy in from some internationally acclaimed producers from the UK. Ali Thomson and Eliot Kennedy as well as Mark Hunter and Saul Davies (who worked on the 3rd album)
This culminates in arguably their best offering so far. ‘Staring At The Ceiling’ , is contemplative and reflective, dreaming and daring to dream. Melodic ‘acoustic piano rock’ forms the basis of the album. Story telling and a journey which takes the listener on a ‘Train ride’ from’ 9am on a Wednesday’ through ballads and into solid rock, there is something for everyone, which has always been the foundation of Watersheds ever growing support base– an ageless and timeless album you can listen to from track 1 to the end. ‘This is another chapter of our growth and learning - looking back over our career I can now see how this has been like building a house – from the foundations up. All along the way you get introduced to experts who offer opinions which you use or discard depending on the value they add to your bigger picture. Sure, there are mistakes made and things you would always do differently, but you end up with something that is unique and beautiful, that has grown from a vision that is entirely your own’ ‘Its been an honour to work with the guys we have been working with – thanks to the record company and ultimately the fans who have supported us, for giving us this privileged opportunity’
