In 2013, Strong Water lead singer and guitarist Greg Brennan finished his American Literature course with something better than an A: the perfect name, borrowed from the Puritans, for his band of whiskey drinkers.
Like a good shot of its namesake, Strong Water is smooth with a bite, garnering inspiration from artists like The Head and the Heart, Mumford and Sons, and The Lone Bellow, yet remaining unafraid to break the conventions of the Americana Folk genre with a pulsing drum beat or a reggae breakdown.
Strong Water graduated from the term “college band” after releasing an EP in 2014 that received overwhelming support from Harrisonburg, Virginia’s thriving underground music community. In 2016, they responded with their self-titled album Strong Water and began touring the Mid Atlantic, gaining attention from larger venues and artists, all while holding down full-time jobs.
In October 2017, Strong Water released their single, “Bearfoot,” before taking almost a year off the road as three band members got hitched. Since the release of their second LP Bearfoot in September 2018, Strong Water has been garnering national and international attention—from independent radio stations to tastemakers and periodicals such as EartotheGround, Relix Magazine, AmericanaUK. Life remains full of unknowns, but one thing is certain: Strong Water is holding nothing back in 2019.
