Hundred Waters Tickets
Take a Dip Into Hundred Waters
Hundred Waters is an indie rock band from Gainesville, Florida that has been rocking out on the stage since 2011. After putting out the first album in 2012 with Elestial Sound, they signed onto Skrillex's OWSLA label later that year. Pitchfork has raved about their subtle acoustic sound, relaxing synths and vocals and imaginative style.
Hundred Waters likes to stay busy on tour and they have a jam-packed schedule of back-to-back shows during the fall and winter. You can catch them at a few venues in Florida, such as Jannus Landing in St. Petersburg or the House of Blues in Orlando. Hundred Waters will also be touring the Midwest, making stops in places such as the Riviera Theatre in Chicago and The Pabst Theatre In Milwaukee.
Three of the band members, Tryon, Tetreault and Giese, have been playing together as far back as grade school. They all went to the University of Florida and formed their band while they were living in a house together. The name Hundred Waters is an homage to an Austrian painter named Friedensreich Hundertwasser who the band says has had a huge impact on their lives. They like his approach to painting as he leaves the meaning of the work open to interpretation and they strive for the same result with their music. The band's musical influences span anywhere from Bjork to Joni Mitchell.
The band is made up of four members: Paul Giese is on electronics and guitars; Nicole Miglis does vocals, keys and plays the flute; Zach Tetreault is on drums and vocals; and Trayer Tryon is on electronics and guitars. The four formed the band during their time together at the University of Florida where they wrote and completed their first album. They were all making their own music individually but decided that it was time to form a group and start making tracks together.
The band's first, self-titled album was a huge success and got them noticed by Grammy award-winning producer Sonny Moore, also known as Skrillex, and his partner at his record label OWSLA. They invited Hundred Waters to be a part of Skrillex's Full Flex Express Canadian Train Tour and in 2012 they were named one of Stereogum's 40 Best New Bands of the year. By that point, they had developed a solid presence on the indie music scene.
Hundred Waters has two albums out, their eponymous debut album and their second record entitled The Moon Rang Like a Bell, which received an impressive 8.1 out of 10 rating from Pitchfork. The album debuted in the Top 50 on the CMJ 200 radio charts and garnered a huge fan base for the band.
Hundred Waters has received tons of hype for it's live shows, which the New York Times has written up as being gorgeous and full of possibilities, time-stopping and surprise-laden. That's pretty high praise for a band that has only been performing together for a little over 2 years. Fans with Hundred Waters tickets will be treated to strong vocals, beautiful harmonies and distinct and eclectic sounds paired with a minimalistic stage setup and entrancing light shows that complement their music. Expect a little dancing and a little shoe gazing at a Hundred Waters show.
