From suffering a gunshot wound as a National Guardsman on Hurricane Katrina duty to cutting his teeth at the raucous honky-tonks of Music City’s Broadway Ave., the Louisiana native has seen his share of both.
Watts developed the blue collar rock ‘n’ roll he calls Deep South Americana to help himself and others better understand the region he’s proud to call home, that patchwork of conflict, beauty, and nuance known as The American South. He uses universal themes and broke-but-not-broken characters to illustrate the truth and the lies the South tells to itself and others.
His debut EP ‘The God’s Own Truth’ was named “Best of 2016” (The Revue). “Watts sings in the title track ‘I may never be Bob Dylan,’ but he has a knack for melody, lyrics, and truth that shows promise as an artist coming into his own.” (No Depression).
