Hundred Waters + Levek Dream Entry BTR Live Studio Session
GITNB’s Acts To Catch at CMJ 2012: Hundred Waters + Levek
So the story goes, a Gainsville, FL busdriver, with an affinity for Disney tunes wrote some jamz that demanded a live show. He knew his words and a guitar were not enough to support such a sound, so he called upon a few local musicians to help support his live set. Well, being as it was a hobby, Levek played some shows, had some fun, then went on being a Gainsville, FL bus driver…for a few years. So after hanging around, fiddling with instruments, homemade sounds and a magnetic synergy that very few bands can claim to possess, the kids got tired of waiting for Mr. Levek (David Levesque) and decided to release some music of their own. Those kids were Hundred Waters.
With such endearing, and ‘of course they were Levek’s backing band’ beginnings, it only feels right to catch both acts (which I love equally) at this year’s CMJ Music Marathon. Really looking forward to these shows.
If you’re in NYC this week, go see Hundred Waters and Levek.
