Formed in 2015 after years of working together in various projects, Water Witches are comprised of long-time friends Ethan Bartman (guitar, lead vocals), Charlie Touvell (drums, vocals), and Matt Clouston (bass, vocals),  though the trio can often host a wide array of fellow musicians and performers. With sets including organists, guitarists, violinists, and even an irreverent rock-and-roll-reverend, adding a rich and uncommonly genuine sense of communal expression and musical exploration.    

Due in part to the diversity of their live performances, Water Witches draw on a far-flung range of influences including Devandra Banhart, Spacemen 3, the Stooges, Aphrodite’s Child, and Velvet Underground. They have cultivated a unique and cohesive sound which Ghettoblaster Magazine described as, “a little bit rock, a little bit psych-folk, a whole lot of good.” 

Their first two self-produced albums, Feathers & HALCYON, are available for digital download and vinyl purchase on Bandcamp, and streaming on Spotify.
