Formed in 2015, this talented trio features established musicians/music veterans Martin Botha (vocals and lead guitar), Hannes van Wyk (bass guitar) and Bennie Pretorius (drums).
While the band’s style is predominantly guitar-driven, old-school blues and rock, the inclusion of varied influences ensures that Black Water’s sound stands out as fresh, thrilling and relevant in today’s competitive landscape. Their slow, intimate version of The Thrill is Gone is a perfect example of Black Water’s unique approach, as is their ballsy rendition of Give Me One Reason and Spoonful of Sugar, which boasts such a clever interplay of chords. Martin’s vocals are deep, dirty, gutsy and raw and the band’s performances are filled with such sincere emotion that it’s clear music is a passionate priority for all three.
