Despite working in the corporate world for a good decade, Mike Waters never let the man get him down. You see, he had been toiling away in his bedroom with music – something that, it would seem, remained pretty much unknown to family, friends and work colleagues. When he finally became comfortable with sharing his songs, music industry types were quick to get in his ear. The Melbourne-via-Adelaide working man was soon working new rooms, including a residency at The Espy and supports alongside Jay Brannan and Lewis Watson. His debut EP is Life, which saw the secret songman team with the likes of John Castle, Craig Harnath and Jack Arentz. Babushka Bar, Ballarat – July 2.
