Born in 2013 out of the vibrant college based community that is Harrisonburg, Virginia, Strong Water has experienced life as a project like most bands. What originally started as a duo, swelled to become a six piece before settling on it's now-three dedicated members whose high energy performance is built on strong Male and Female lead vocals supported by harmonies, driving Acoustic/Electric Guitar and Banjo parts, well crafted melodic Fiddle lines, and rounded out by tasteful Drums/Percussion, and Bass Guitar.
Strong Water's eclectic collection of original songs contain sounds and influences from genres such as Bluegrass & Blues, to their personal spin on Americana and Folk-Rock, incorporating styles from bands and artists such as Mumford & Sons, The Lone Bellow, and Judah & the Lion.
Despite major lineup changes immediately following their independently funded, recorded, and released 14 track Debut LP in April, 2016, Strong Water has hit the ground running performing throughout the Mid-Atlantic, opening for "On the Rise" and household name national and regional acts such as The SteelDrivers, Judah & The Lion, The Last Bison, Devon Gilfillian, Lucy Dacus, Old Salt Union, Boy Named Banjo, and many more.
Their brand new single "Bearfoot," is a strong kick off to the next chapter for the band as the single's more mature and cohesive sound signifies a more collaborative approach to writing. Integrating rich and nostalgic lyrics alongside warm and rustic sounding instrumentation, the new single weaves a tale of endless summer days gone by. The single is only a glimpse of the band's new record which is set to release in early 2018.
