Watershed

Review: This 5-piece band features Ben Fawson (vocals and guitar), Rob Milnes (vocals, keyboards, gobiron, guitar), Dave Hamilton (bass guitar), Phil Clifford-Brown (Mandolin), and John Alexander (Cajon and Reinforced Steel Percussion). They have been playing together since 2004, and play their own blend of Funky-Rock melodies including "The cord", "Just for one day", "Living yours", "Restless soul", "Strange". They have just released their second album "Songs from the Shed", which is available from Itunes, Amazon, Rhapsody. Sadly their drummer, John Cullen, a founding member and vocalist, died last year after a long battle with Cancer. This has prompted the band to donate a large percentage of the profits from sales of the album to MacMillan Cancer Support.
