Pure Songs, in line with the elements

The past three years for Patrick Watson is not a simple time: The canadian lost his mother, his long-time Drummer from rose, and he experienced an agonizing divorce. After the tours, he came back to an empty house without his children.

Watson would sink had enough reasons, on the current Album "Wave" with his Band which is called, since 2003, Patrick Watson – into the darkness and mourning. But the 40-Year-old stressed in Interviews like he does not want to look back, but go to "Wave" a new perspective on life, a "Reset". "I'm not drowning. I swim," he said once.

The water as a cleansing and recurring Element, the Old away and New brings. "Sometimes you've got to burn to keep the storm away", sings Watson, "Here Comes the River" – sometimes you have to burn the storm away.

From Patrick Watson is also on "Wave" no Power-Band, whose feelings and values, abound. The sound is soft, the Piano is the main instrument of the singer, always come to electronic swab, musical trips to Spain, or to Jazz as in "Strange Rain". The melody and lyrics are tightly interwoven, the Songs are carefully constructed: Watson has always been a very talented song writer.

of Course, the melancholy is there, if a piece is a lot of saying "Broken", but the musicians are always present. "One of the most difficult lessons I've learned in the last four years: when swimming and when not to," said Patrick Watson, the canadian newspaper "The Globe and Mail". "I fail still, but sometimes I succeed. I have to let the wave do their thing until I can breathe again."
