About
Deep soulful music with singing slide guitar and evocative vocals that speak to another time while keeping a foot firmly planted in the modern. A hybrid not yet been experienced yet is still familiar
Mike Watson began cutting teeth at the legendary King Eddy hotel and has since opened directly for Huey Lewis & The News, placed in the semi finals in Memphis for the 2018 IBC competition, and has just released a new album with his band The 6L6’s. Wether acoustic or electric, or electric with full band, you will be enthralled with joyful noise.
