The Birthplace of Country Music proudly presents another exciting edition of the RTE 23 Listening Room concert Series! Enjoy a night with Saw Black and get a sneak preview of the band also scheduled to perform at this year’s Bristol Rhythm & Roots Reunion music festival!
Saw Black reaches higher with Water Tower, a fitting follow up to his basement gem Azalea Days. Water Tower expands on the self-reflective nature of Azalea Days but brings a bigger band and a higher production value to the table. With 14 songs, this collage of sounds and short pop-structured songs chronicles Saw’s year of touring, songwriting, and learning how to love again. Recorded between three separate studios with three different line-ups, Water Tower comes together as an American record about writing records and music.
What does it mean to be a person who plays guitar and sings songs about life and love? Saw confronts these questions as a common thread on his second effort. An art handler by trade, Saw Black is also producer and co-owner of Crystal Pistol Records. He began playing music when his grandfather, a jazz piano player, gave him an electric guitar at the age of 11. Now 29 and having taken on every role within the recording process, he presses onward and upward. Water Tower is out via WarHen Records in collaboration with Crystal Pistol Records.
