Nick Waterhouse is an R&B fanatic who combines an uncanny old-school sensibility with a charged, contemporary style. Waterhouse's retro vocals and look has been compared to original rockers Elvis Presley and Buddy Holly as well as neo-soulsters Mark Ronson, Mayer Hawthorne, Amy Winehouse, Charles Bradley, Allen Stone and Sharon Jones. He's a fan of vintage, over-modulated R&B, a time-honored, one-mic recording tradition that evokes the back-alley thrill of New Orleans, Detroit and Memphis in their heyday. After a recent appearance on Live From Daryl's House,  Daryl Hall said "We really bonded over our love of vintage R&B and soul. Nick’s a real scholar of this music." These days, Waterhouse is a successful recording artist, with one well-received LP and and several high-profile tours and collaborations to his name.
