TDP Recommends: ‘I Can Only Give You Everything’ by Nick Waterhouse

Nick Waterhouse has soul. Although he got his start in the garage rock scene of Orange County, his time as an R&B DJ prompted a move to the South and the recording of his debut album, Time’s All Gone.  The album is strong from start to finish – full of swirling soul, smooth and howling vocals, frenzied rhythms, and high energy. Waterhouse, The Los Angeles guitarist and crooner, brought his Motown sound to the Brighton Music Hall last night to promote his upcoming album, Holly, which is due out on March 4th. Holly promises to be another stellar mix of throwbacks to the time in American music that brought us Sam Cooke, Ray Charles, and Etta James. This track, “I Can Only Give You Everything” is a mix of surf rock, soul, and sixties girl group, with a hint of doo wop swagger. It will tide you over until the release of his second album. Dig it, Devils!
