Sometimes, the only way to cut an album is to completely uproot and relocate.

In order to record their self-titled sophomore effort, Lullwater made a pilgrimage from their native Athens, GA to Seattle, WA during December 2011. Holing up at the historical London Bridge Studios, the birthing ground of Pearl Jam’s Ten and Soundgarden’s Louder Than Love, with producer Jonathan Plum, the group immediately felt at home. In fact, singer and rhythm guitarist John Strickland insists the musicians experienced something of a creative revelation.

“My whole childhood was nineties rock,” he explains. “For me growing up in Georgia, the Seattle scene was like a mythological place where all of these amazing musicians came out of. I told the guys we needed to go there to record. We aimed to bring Athens to Seattle. Being there definitely changed us. It brought us a lot closer together, and we found the sound we’d always wanted.”

That personal “sound” eclipses the hypnotic, heavy melodies of the Pacific Northwest with a healthy helping of bluesy Southern swagger. The quartet—John , Brett Strickland , Joe Wilson , and Roy “Ray” Beatty —pave their own path with raw, real rock ‘n’ roll that makes no compromises or concessions.

From day one, that was always the goal though. Meeting through mutual friends in the fertile Athens music scene, Lullwater was born in 2007. They experienced all of the madness inherent in starting out.
