Album Notes
The Water Callers write and perform original and traditional songs rooted in Americana, tied together with close vocal harmonies. In addition to acting in and creating music for film and theater projects, The Water Callers released "The Finest of the Wheat" in December of 2006.

One recent review says: "...you can easily picture hearing [their] songs on a scratchy and tinny sounding 78. Yet, at the same time, there is a modern sensibility about their music, which probably comes from the hindsight of knowing what works and what doesn't. In other words, they've done their homework, and it shows in the songwriting."

Old time country meets Noel Coward
Curiously dramatic in delivery, the songs on this album invoke Noel Coward – try “In the Moonlight” or “Lorraine” for example - as much as their country/folk heritage. Lyrically adept with a more than a touch of music hall about them, the Water Callers impressed us with their own quirky compositions. “Oh Kitchen” is supposedly based on a childhood poem. “So Far” had us thinking of Hoagy Carmichael rewriting a Beach Boys song. Ending on the sing a long at the county fair “Durhamite”, this album certainly falls into the eclectic category.
We were not entirely sure what to make of this album. It sounds like traditional fayre with the vocals having, at times, a back to shellac feel. A throwback to times past, perhaps. Anachronistic certainly. Worthy of your attention? We think so.
