About The Watergrain Band


The Watergrain Band The Watergrain Band is a new touring three piece inspired by the album of the same name comprising Ben Paley and Pip Ives together with songwriter Martin Young. Described by fRoots Magazine as: “strong....self-penned material with plenty to say and sly nods to tradition”, the music celebrates the nature of life both good and bad. The Watergrain band reflects the eclectic mixture that the world throws at us all with relationships, work and politics through thought provoking lyrics. The Watergrain band will be touring in the New Year led by Martin Young bringing to life Watergrain’s take on matters modern and old. “We are not about protest songs”, says Martin, “others are doing that, there are some political songs and some traditional but we don’t do songs to be populist or to make a cheap point. In the modern world of the internet we are more open to the views of others than ever, these songs are intended to reflect the perceptions of the world and the attitudes of the day. They are about chronicling a moment in time.”
