GIG REVIEW: MIKE WATERS | SHEBEEN (MELB) | 19.6.15


Mike Waters seems like a really nice dude. Maybe it’s his soft, round face covered with ginger hair, maybe it’s the child-like crisp tone of his voice, maybe it’s his lyrics that make you feel like you’re seventeen again. Whatever it is, there is no denying that a Mike Waters show makes you feel like you’re being hugged by your Mother in a safe place. 

Daisy, a song about love and self-doubt, has the simple melody of a lullaby and its prominent whistle verse leaves your brain stuck on loop. 


Mike Waters promoted his debut EP Life at the Shebeen Bandroom on Friday night. His style of songwriting is pure, simple and easy to digest. Songs of self-doubt joined his sensitive and grateful attitude. Taking the stage with only an acoustic guitar and a loop pedal he appeared nervous through the first few songs. The intimate setting soon calmed him down as the audience was slowly rocked into a pop coma. 

Although Mike Waters’ music has only been made public less than two years ago the humble Melbourne songwriter is now hoping to share his pleasant tunes to anyone and everyone interested in a good dose of crisp, clean pop music.
