The Watermen premiere new album March 11 at the Rodeo

Published Thursday February 26th, 2009

Fans of the Moncton-based band The Watermen are in for a treat with the premiere of their latest album next month.

The group, which specializes in light rock and new country, will be performing tracks from their new album entitled 11,000 Days during an appearance March 11 at the Rockin Rodeo, following the Great Big Sea concert at the Moncton Coliseum.

The album itself isn't scheduled for national release until March 17, with Universal Records as the distributor.

The group recently signed with Jeff Prism of Prism Music who has signed and developed many recording artists including Loverboy, Gowan, Platinum Blonde, Dan Hill, Prism, Barney Bentall and Harlequin, in addition to overseeing Celine Dion's first English recording.

Lead singer/songwriter Marc Little says he's pleased with the album. Their first album, entitled The Watermen, was released two years ago.

Members of the band include Marc on vocals and guitar, Mike Gaudet on bass, Clinton Fernandes on drums, Gilles Savoie on keyboard and Tom Thompson on guitar. All of them are from Moncton.

Little has been singing and writing for the past 25 years and he says all of the band members are seasoned veterans.

The tracks on the new album include 11,000 Days, I Like Beer and You Like Wine, Oh Oh Reality Show, Mother's Child, Get Through To You, Long Road, Crossroads, Immuned, Armchair Warriors, Something to Believe, Stay The Same and Turn The Water Back To Wine.

The Watermen are known for uniqueness in their song writing. Every song stands on its own and is not simply a rehashed version of a certain formula, said one critic, adding the group floats nicely in the pop rock and new country categories.

In the near future, Little says he will begin working on their third album with songwriter Alex Call of Nashville.

Rick Reese and Neon Highway are expected to open the upcoming Moncton show.

n Advance tickets are $15 each at Rockin Rodeo, Ayer Convenience, Spin-It Cds & DVDs and Maggies Flowers of Riverview.
