Waterdeep has become more an adjective describing
a grassroots phenomenon than it has a band name. Logging more
time on the road every year than they do in their hometown of
Wichita, Kansas, the members of Squint Entertainment's latest
signing have witnessed the growth of a far-flung but close-knit
community centering not so much around them as a band, as around
the ideas and passions that drive and shape them.
Part of what makes the atmosphere around Waterdeep
so chemical is their willingness to create "in the moment."
The five piece band is known for taking chances, for improvising
on the fly, for sailing out into uncertain seas, and somehow finding
their way back to dry land. Tapes of their live shows are a hotly
collected items because of the fluid approach they take to their
music; songs are seldom performed the same way twice, and completely
new musical exchanges are generated spontaneously as they go.
This gives the music a living, breathing, rooted feel, with very
little pretense and a welcoming vulnerability, especially when
their voices and instruments begin to brood and soar in a creative
act of worship.
