Album Notes
The human body is comprised of roughly 60% water. As the building block of life, water is vital for all forms of it. Hoping to deliver this same sense of human connection with their music, Water & Bodies offer no gimmicks, just real music that paints a picture of the best life you can live with what you’ve been given. Like it or not, we’re all the same underneath, and are only here once, so we must make the best of it.

In a world of bad trends and over-produced albums, Water & Bodies aim to create honest, positive, well-crafted music. Possessing an eclectic indie-rock vibe that mixes the smooth sounds of the late ‘70s, hits from the ‘80s, and an alternative vibe of the ‘90s these Portland, Ore. natives are no strangers to the music world. Christopher James Ruff (vocals, keys), Aaron Tollefson (guitar, vocals), and Beau Kuther (drums) have played together for nearly a decade in other projects — both signed and unsigned — and have experienced all angles of the industry. Now reunited with bass player Kile Brewer upon the departure of Kelsey Kuther, the group recorded an album they could truly call unique.

After releasing two solid EPs that garnered them local notoriety and praise, Water & Bodies took to the road for a three-week West Coast tour in July of 2010. Upon returning home, they wasted no time in letting their creativity flow, and wrote a full album’s worth of songs in less than two months. The resulting tracks were recorded with producer Rian Lewis (Crosstide) at Interlace Audio and his home studio in Portland. Completely funded via Kickstarter, the band raised enough money from their rapidly-growing fan base to record and self-release their new full-length independently, without the assistance of a label.

Interlacing the passion and raw hooks of ‘90s alternative rock with their already-streamlined sound, Water & Bodies’ new record will undoubtedly scream to those who want to hear something real. Music lovers from all walks of life will be able to take something positive from this fresh collection of heart-felt, energetic songs. Possessing a keen sense of melody and showcasing strong songwriting skills, Water & Bodies’ latest proves they have what it takes to achieve large-scale success.
