RAINSTORM BROTHER is the next chapter for Los Angeles based musician and mixed media artist John Isaac Watters. It is a song heard through the wind of a rusted forest. A deserted bar on an undiscovered planet. It hovers between analog and digital. Poetry that flickers through generations, ragged medicine for the suffering modern. Originally from Mexico City and Tucson, AZ, Watters began his creative exploration in architecture under Frank Gehry, before choosing to forge his own path in other artistic arenas. Since then he has released 3 albums: Parachute Tramps, CASAS, and Campanas and has had numerous shows for his work as a visual artist using film sculpture and painting. In collaboration with producer Tyler Chester (Blake Mills, Jackson Browne, Joan Baez) a Rainstorm Brother EP will be released via Handwritten Records in summer 2018.
Originally from Redlands, California, Tyler Chester is An LA based producer and multi-instrumentalist who has worked with Jackson Browne, Nikka Costa, Blake Mills, Sara Watkins, Hayes Carll, Gungor, and George Ezra among many others. When he is not touring, Chester works out of his recording studio in Glassell Park.
Originally from Mexico City and Tucson, AZ, John Isaac Watters is an songwriter and performer who has released 3 albums over the last few years: Parachute Tramps, CASAS, and Campanas.
"John Isaac Watters is an understated, determined and diverse songwriter who touches on country, folk and even a little gospel to make carefully crafted songs that drift to land somewhere between Townes Van Zandt and Leonard Cohen." - LA WEEKLY
John Isaac Watters sings as if he’s just completed a marathon. One can practically hear the sweat dripping from his brow as his voice shakes, quivers and cracks as if these Southwestern ramblers are the most important thing in the world. -L.A. TIMES
Throughout 2014 and 2015 Watters maintained a weekly residency at Hyperion Tavern in Silver Lake. The residency had many notable guest performers, people like Daniel Lanois, Will Butler of Arcade Fire, and Mark Eitzel of American Music Club. It was through that residency that Watters and Chester met and began performing and recording together.
