Kevin Max
one of my favorite musical artists, Kevin Max is at the same time genuine and eclectic. his music reflects his character, and he is one of the few musical artists i can truly identify with.

Christian Americana. Waterdeep's music has a very diversified sound, and very real feel to it. This band plays its music without pretention or artificiality.

Jason Feller
Former member of the band Chapter 41, Jason Feller is someone I'm glad to call my friend. He is a real musician, and his thoughts and emotions express themselves in a genuine way through his music.
