Josh Waters has been working consistently developing his craft for a few years. He seems to be having a moment of exponential growth as an artist. He’s a part of the buzzing collective of talented young artists that also includes Quavias Black, DevMaccc, D Horton, and Davante Liv3. His soulful voice and cool demeanor is a perfect combination that results in some very smooth R&B.
I’m going to take it back a few months. I remember when I first saw the artwork from the homie Josh Waters confirming that he had secured a feature from Smoke DZA for his single “This Fire”. The track was dope and was a great representation of Waters’ vibe. He also performed at SXSW in Austin, TX and got to present himself to an all-new audience. I had the opportunity to chop it up with him about how it all came to fruition:
“Honestly, the Smoke play fell out of the sky. One of my managers is a good friend of his, so it kinda just worked out on its on. Another fairly well-known artist was almost on it as a matter of fact. We couldn’t get it to work out though,” said Waters. “SXSW was an experience like no other. It was amazing, to come from Mississippi to an SXSW stage in Texas was truly humbling.” Waters says he’s not letting the momentum slow up anytime soon, “Expect more music. The project is on the way.”
The South Mississippi resident has already released his follow-up track “The Gospel” and it definitely continues the trend set by “This Fire”.
Update: Josh Waters has released his debut solo project “143” with features from Smoke DZA and Domani Harris as well as production from Big KRIT. Don’t miss out on this one, he’s breathing life back into real R&B about true feelings and not situationships. It’s one of the most refreshing albums I’ve heard in a while.
