Inspired by the northwest hills of NJ in the shadow of the Appalachian Ridge, Water Street creates a new version of Americana, mixing soulful acoustic melodies with rugged rock and roll bursts, enticing bluegrass mandolin riffs, and a driving rhythm section with some hints of funk which combine to create a uniquely new, Pop/Indie-Americana/Roots sound. 

The band first adopted the name Water Street from the location where the band would meet to practice, write and hone their craft. They took the name as a nod to their roots, reflecting the close sense of community bonding them to their town, each other, and their work.

The band has released 3 albums to date, as well as the 2023 singles, Pen Pals and Carolina. In the fall of 2023, they headed back into the studio to record a series of new songs to be released in 2024.

This is a band that means what they say. Sit back, take a listen, and expect the unexpected. Prepare to be won over by Water Street's dynamic energy and genuine likeability. 


Water Street has been around for a while but seems to have found their stride… A brighter, more pop-rock focused sound has emerged and caught the attention of a growing fanbase…This is not a band of kids just trying to get attention anymore. Water Street pours out emotion and welcomes listeners to come along for the ride. 

Power-pop songwriting at its highest. 

Keith Pro- Indie Band Guru

"Water Street has the skill to recreate the music of the past, but their songwriting soars and flies on distinctly modern wings. Their lyrical material and the energy they bring to their performance is deeply informed by multiple styles of music and that fact elevates the release far above some hollow recreation of roots music."

-Shannon Cowden, Indie Music Reviews

"Water Street is one of the best well-rounded musical efforts emerging from the indie scene in recent memory."

-Lydia Hillenberg, Vents Magazine 

"Water Street embodies the best of modern Americana while surrounding their material with an excellence that extends far past typical."

-Monty Zike, Valhalla Music Blog
