Episode 58:
Nick Waterhouse


I only just discovered this fantastic sight while looking up Nick Waterhouse. What a great service you, Daryl, are doing for life-long musicians like myself! This was an intelligent show, and an enjoyable jam with great musicians and a talented younger artist. I also really appreciated the relaxed and "meaningful conversation" you had together.

I'm so glad young people are being exposed via other young people (Waterhouse) to classic retro but with a vintage high quality twist. Flirtin' with the dangerous...and Lovin' the trouble. Boogie like yeah. 5 stars*****!

Chemotherapy whips my butt. I watched this episode for the first time after a tough, sickening treatment. All I could do was keep yelling "Damn Son!!" when Nick, Daryl, and the band took off. Heals my soul. I'm now a Nick fan.

Nick Waterhouse
Waterhouse, whose retro vocal style and stylized look has been compared to original rockers Elvis Presley and Buddy Holly as well as neo-soulsters Mark Ronson, Mayer Hawthorne, Amy Winehouse, Charles Bradley, Allen Stone and Sharon Jones, was pumped to be part of Live from Daryl’s House. “Playing and hanging out with Daryl was simultaneously beyond belief and totally natural… just playing music. Any nerves I had went out the door eight bars in when I saw that we were all in the same pocket.”

He also added: “Daryl’s a real soulful, smart cat, and was totally open and warm as a host. The man, the band, and his whole family really showed me a great time, something I will remember for days and years to come.”

For Nick Waterhouse, it all began with a single vinyl 45, “Some Place,” which he recorded with “a band of twenty something kids” and sax player Ira Raibon, a veteran of some of the same bands which produced the kind of lost classics that the singer-songwriter attempted to emulate. The release sold out shortly after it was released, and now changes hands for upwards of $300 on eBay for the rare copy. A fan of “vintage, over-modulated R&B…a time-honored tradition that evokes the back-alley thrill of New Orleans, Detroit and Memphis in their heyday,” Waterhouse recorded on magnetic tape direct to mono on the same Gold Star Studios lathe once used by Phil Spector and the Beach Boys. “The important thing to me was I did everything myself,” he says. “On my own terms—the way I wanted.” The subject of a June GQ profile and photo spread, Waterhouse begins a tour Sept. 26 in Denver , CO , which runs through Oct. 21 in L.A. at the El Rey Theatre.

Daryl found he had a lot in common with his LFDH guest. "We really bonded over our love of vintage R&B and soul. Nick’s a real scholar of this music, and it turned out to be a great match.”
