oh my gosh, I'm so excited!

Posted on: March 17, 2011

My husband Bobby has played with quite a few bands since we started out together.  I was first introduced to a few angels back in 2002 and we struck up a chord that would intertwine itself throughout our lives to this very day.  Music has a way of bonding people to each other in a way that can create the lasting bonds of a family.  And although times change and our lives may take us far away from each other, we always seem to find our way back home.

I’ll have to save the entire story of the Wild Angels for another time, as a few short lines here would never do it justice.  But out of that, came a new love and a new incarnation of music.

4321 The WatersThe Waters are the original-based duo, Krystal Baker and Sturgis Waters.  Krystal’s moving vocals are complimented with intricate and soulful guitar arrangements by Sturgis and together they are a dynamic pair.  Tuesday night at the Rhythm Room, they released their latest cd, 4321.  You can buy it HERE on iTunes and check them out at thewatersmusic.com.

It was an amazing show with incredible guest musicians.  Laura Rupejko made a surprise visit all the way from Colorado Springs to show her support and lend her beautiful voice.  Jay Allan shared the stage for a small set after the entire album of 4321 was played.  Then they took it to the next level showcasing new songs soon to be released.   I absolutely love “One Eye Open” and can’t help but smile and sing along.

They closed out the night with a jaw-dropping rendition of Damien Rice’s “Volcano” with every musician in stage.  The crowd went nuts, it was amazing! Such an amazing display of talent and inspiration.  Of course I was there with camera in hand to capture as much of the action as I could 🙂

I lent a creative hand with the backdrop and set dressing.  Mark Tillman made a willowy tree and we wanted the wired tulle flowers I made with Laura to look like they were blowing off the branches.  The final product really told a story.  Bobby’s custom drumhead of the CD cover looked fantastic.  Props to Jennifer Shannon for organizing such a huge event! It was a raging rapid of preparation on everyone’s behalf and considering the joint was packed on a Tuesday night, it was a huge success!  There is a photo video below featuring the song “Stay a Little Longer” from 4321.
