Water Tower is the current moniker of multi-instrumentalist Kenny
Feinstein’s musical brainchild, originally founded in 2005 in
Portland. While their lineup has evolved over time, fueled by
Feinstein’s masterful song-crafting, fiercely DIY approach, and
genre-bending sonic identity, Water Tower have established themselves
as a global force to be reckoned with.
Pioneers of a new wave of bluegrass and old-time with a distinctly
punk rock flair, Water Tower take influences from Foghorn Stringband
and Bill Monroe to Rancid and Black Flag, passing them through a
unique lens that magnifies the individual strength of their core and
auxiliary members while remaining faithful to the revivalist spirit.
In 2015, the band moved to LA, where their current lineup of Kenny
Feinstein (lead vocals, guitar, fiddle, mandolin), Tommy Drinkard
(banjo, vocals), Taylor Estes (Bass, Vocals), and Jesse Blue Eads
(banjo, vocals) can often be found busking while not in the studio or
on tour.
Since then, Water Tower have built major momentum, releasing a concept
album Fly Around (ft. guest vocals from Black Flag’s Ron Reyes and
produced by Don Bolles of The Germs), filming 1m+ view viral videos,
and catching the eye of A-listers including Katy Perry, whose 2023 NYE
party they played at, and Riff Raff, who shouted out “Take Me Back”,
the debut single from their upcoming album Live from Los Angeles, to
be released later this year. A slew of tour dates in the US and the UK
has already been announced
